In summer 2020 NoMad are coming to London. They will take residence in the heart of Covent Garden, by converting the historic, grade II-listed building formerly known as The Bow Street Magistrates’ Court, into a ninety-one room hotel. The interiors have been designed to complement the buildings history and architectural features, and the original Magistrates’ Courtroom will be re-imagined as a space for private events and gatherings.
As the NoMad’s first opening outside the United States, London is sure to receive gracious hospitality, understated elegance and comfort.
Amazonica London is all set for its opening in the former Allied Irish Bank building on Mayfair’s Berkeley Square, and if the success of its sister restaurant in Madrid is anything to go by this will be a spot not to miss. While it’s certainly not London’s first rainforest-themed restaurant, the new kid on the block promises to be an altogether fancier beast and is sure to be up there as one of the most Instagrammable dining venues in the capital.
For the food think high-end Brazilian cuisine infused with the best flavours from Asia and the Mediterranean. poke bowls, tandoori and slow roasted caramelised pineapple, sushi and frogs’ legs all grace the mouthwatering menu.
Amazonica will be open from the morning until the early hours of the following day and it will be able to entertain up to 300 guests across the restaurant and bar area. This is certainly a venue to watch.
Fancy dinner with a view? If so Decimo, Michelin-starred chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’ new restaurant is the place to go. With an awesome great glass elevator entrance and incredible vistas over the square mile, Westminster, the West End, King’s Cross and the clock-tower of St Pancras – this is a restaurant that packs definite ‘wow’ factor.
Inside there is a standalone bar, open kitchen, two private dining rooms and seating for 114, all gloriously designed by Shawn Hausman to complement the Spanish-Mexican food fusion.
The Biltmore in Mayfair is the first UK property from LXR Hotels & Resorts, and is located opposite London’s Grosvenor Square, a short walk from Oxford street.
