A look inside: Hart Shoreditch Hotel London opens to the public

By LLM Reporters on 25th August 2020

Hart Shoreditch Hotel London, a brand-new 126-room lifestyle hotel from Curio Collection by Hilton, opened its doors in the heart of East London on August 21st.

This new luxury hotel is located in one of London’s most creative neighbourhoods and will attempt to seamlessly blend into the area’s vibrant heritage and modern-day creativity through its thoughtfully designed spaces and unique character.

Hart Shoreditch takes its name from one of the building’s previous occupants, The Harts, who were cabinetmakers in the 1800s. Once a centre for craftsmanship, East London’s rich industrial and artisan history is referenced throughout the distinctive space (by Fabled Studios). Design details including a striking wrought iron and copper staircase, and contemporary, statement mahogany lighting has been designed bespoke to replicate cabinetmaker’s boxes and pay homage to the building’s past life.

Guests can choose from nine guestroom and suite categories at Hart Shoreditch. Each guestroom features a muted, elegant colour palette with copper mirror accents, deep green leather detailing and simplistic, modern furnishings. In the bathrooms, a mixture of textures and materials come together to create a warm, urban space – concrete vanities, herringbone flooring, bold geometric tiling and paired back brass detailing.

Lina Zakzeckyte, general manager of Hart Shoreditch, said: “We are incredibly excited for the opening of Hart Shoreditch. The hotel itself really is one-of-a-kind, with a design that acts as a celebration of the local area and its rich heritage. We’re thrilled to be able to bring something new to the area, offering guests a place to stay that is unique and design-led yet laid back and comfortable.

“Not only will it be the perfect base for the curious traveller to explore the local area and all of the exciting experiences that come with it, we also want the hotel to become an integral part of Shoreditch – a community hub for those who live, work and play in the area.”

Hart Shoreditch is also home to BARBOUN, a restaurant from the team behind acclaimed London restaurants, Yosma and Hovarda. BARBOUN offers an Eastern Mediterranean menu inspired by the flavours of Levantine coastal towns cooked over open flame. The restaurant is headed up by emerging talent Fezile Ozalgan, who has drawn inspiration from her Turkish Cypriot heritage.

The hotel’s all-day bar, Tavla, is an exciting new addition to Shoreditch for both local Londoners and visitors from further afield. With a strong focus on vinyl DJs, and fun, experiential elements such as the chance to play a game of backgammon while enjoying one of the bar’s barrel-aged cocktails or traditional Turkish coffee cooked over hot sand.

In addition, Hart Shoreditch will offer three meeting spaces, two of which can be joined to create a boardroom. Ideal for meetings and events alike, each space has been designed to feel like an 18th Century Huguenot townhouse, with design details including sandstone fireplaces, soft green walls, belted leather chandeliers and brogued leather wall lighting. Additional facilities within the hotel include a 42.5sqm gym and fitness centre, and a private dining area for up to twelve.
