Situated in a Soho pedestrian thoroughfare that opens up Ham Yard and Denman Place to the public for the first time since the 1960s, Firmdale Hotels’ eighth London property became the centrepiece of a new ‘urban village’ when it opened on 1 June.
The 91-room hotel lies alongside 13 specialist shops and a bronze Tony Cragg sculpture, as well as a restaurant and bar with al fresco drinking and dining. Designed by Firmdale’s co-owner Kit Kemp, the interior will feature three meeting rooms (two for 50 delegates and one able to host 120), a 175-seat theatre and an original, imported 1950s Texas bowling alley that can host 100-150. A lobby for 200-400 is also available.
A Soholistic Spa and gym (with hypoxic chamber for altitude training), library, drawing room and rooftop garden complete the quirky offer.
Wi-fi: free throughout
