The Nomad Hotel brand will open its first London property in December this year, housed within the grade II listed former Bow Street Magistrates’ Court and Police Station.
The 19th century building is located on Bow Street close to Covent Garden Underground Station, and has been closed since 2006.
As previously reported, the 92-room Nomad London will feature a number of food and beverage outlets including all day dining Nomad Restaurant housed within an atrium “reminiscent of an Edwardian Greenhouse”.
Side Hustle will offer a shared plates menu “inspired by chef Ian Coogan’s Mexican heritage paired with Europe’s best agave-based spirits”, while Common Decency is an “East London style craft cocktail bar complimented by elements of West End London’s establishments”.
The hotel will also house an art programme “celebrating the influence of post-war American art and European avant-garde”, and the original Magistrates’ Courtroom will be converted into events space.
Nomad is owned by the Sydell Group, which also operates London’s The Ned hotel in partnership with Soho House and Co (for our review click here), as well as the Saguaro and Park MGM brands.
Nomad London will be a joint partnership between Sydell Group and investment firm BTC UK.
The hotel joins a raft of properties set to debut in the UK capital towards the end of 2020, including Nobu Hotel London Portman Square (originally scheduled to open in July), and The Londoner (which was due to have opened in June).
Pan Pacific Hotels recently pushed back the opening of its first London property – housed within the mixed use One Bishopsgate Plaza development close to Liverpool Street station – until early 2021.
