Standard International has released more details about the F&B spaces at its forthcoming London property.
The Standard, London is scheduled to open in Kings Cross this summer and will be the brand’s first hotel outside the US, joining properties in LA, Miami and New York.
The 266-room hotel will be housed within a converted office block, previously occupied by Camden Council, with three brand new floors sitting on top of the existing building.
The ground floor of the building will feature two food and beverage spaces by executive chef Adam Rawson, former Young British Foodie Awards Chef of the Year.
Isla will be an all-day dining venue located in the lobby area with alfresco space on the hotel’s garden terrace, with a menu focusing on “coastal cuisine, light proteins and seasonal British produce accompanied by a selection of natural wines”.
Meanwhile Double Standard, describe as a “boisterous space” will feature a menu inspired by traditional pub classics and “NYC dive bar food”, with a standalone bar offering craft beers, wines and cocktails.
In late summer a third venue will open with a rooftop restaurant and standalone bar by Michelin-starred chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias, who currently runs the family-owned Casamia and Paco Tapas restaurants in Bristol.
Standard International is also set to open a Maldives property later this year.
