Brook Street is a street in the exclusive central London district of Mayfair.

On September 15th 1997 Peter Tonwshend unveiled an English heritage plaque at 23 Brook street to honor the memory of Jimi Hendrix who had lived at the address. In fact Jimi Hendrix had lived at 23 Brook Street for quite a short time during the years 1968-1969. The flat was mainly lived in by his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham and her friend Angie Bourdon. Hendrix only stayed there a few days in February and March 1969, he then returned to America.
