London is not the only city in the world to have suffered due to the coronavirus pandemic, but despite the lockdowns and the economic effects of COVID-19, there is a bumper crop of new luxury hotels due to open their doors to discerning guests in the coming year.
In February, in what was once Bow Street Magistrates Court, a building with plenty of its own tales to tell, open NoMad, noted by Vogue as one of the most anticipated hotel openings in the world.
A who’s-who of historical figures once came through its doors to face the full force of the law, including suffragette pioneers the Pankhursts, Chile’s General Pinochet and playwright Oscar Wilde.
When the fully refurbished establishment opens, it will have bedrooms in former cells and a sense of playfulness in the Common Decency cocktail bar, and a transatlantic flair in its restaurants.
Heading towards Charing Cross Road and you will find Denmark Street, London’s own Tin Pan Alley, lined with guitar shops and recording studios. Opening in the summer of 2021 is Chateau Denmark, which will be housed in some of the street’s most famous buildings.
These include where David Bowie signed his first contract, and where Elton John and Jimi Hendrix rehearsed, and the hotel will have access to recording studios and concert spaces. There will be a music-themed decor, which has nods to London’s psychedelia and punk scenes.
The hotel openings in Soho during the year will be looking to cherish the area’s history. In September The Broadwick opens its doors and taps into Soho’s history with an Italian restaurant and cocktail bar and decor from Martin Brudnizki of Wolseley and Annabel’s fame.
Leicester Square, famous for its cinemas will see The Londoner open in April, which will have 350 rooms and a restaurant on the 16th floor. It will also have like music, performance spaces and a private cinema.
