New To London – Hart Shoreditch

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

Hart Shoreditch will be located in one of London’s most creative neighbourhoods and will seamlessly blend the area’s vibrant heritage and modern-day creativity through its thoughtfully designed spaces and unique character.

The hotel takes its name from one of the building’s previous occupants, The Harts, who were cabinetmakers in the 1800’s. 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.

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.

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.

Additional facilities within the hotel include a 42.5sqm gym and fitness centre, and a private dining area for up to twelve. Located in the heart of Shoreditch on Great Eastern Street, Hart Shoreditch is conveniently situated just a moment’s walk from Shoreditch High Street underground station and within walking distance of the neighbourhood’s independent boutiques, vibrant bars, restaurants and famous markets such as Brick Lane and Spitalfields. Encouraging guests to immerse themselves in their surroundings and explore the local area, the hotel is also just a stone’s throw away from the City of London and the rest of London’s landmark attractions.
