Intercontinental Hotels has revealed the five restaurants and bars that will feature in its second London property when it opens this winter.
The 453-room Intercontinental London – The O2 will be located on the Greenwich Peninsula and each food and drink venue will focus on the area's history.
Clipper Bar will feature 270-degree vista windows that offer views of the river and what was once the East India trading docks. An afternoon tea menu with a selection of 34 loose teas from the East India Company will be offered by day, while wines, draught beers, spirits and cocktails will be available in the evening.
The Market Brasserie will provide all-day dining with floor-to-ceiling windows, fresh breads and pastries, and displays with cured meats and smoked salmon. Dinner will be influenced by the original Greenwich markets.
With room for 80 people and a private dining space for 24, The Peninsula Restaurant will offer a daily fine-dining menu with modern European cuisine with a hint of exotic flavours and spices.
On the 18th floor of the hotel with rooftop space, Eighteen Sky Bar will serve local and international craft beers, specialist wines, spirits and champagnes, joined by a pan Asian sushi inspired menu.
The bar will also double as a venue that can be hired for private parties or events and has a built-in dance floor.
Finally, the Meridian Lounge, named after the hotel's location marking the starting point of every time zone in the world, will be a meeting space, a place to work and somewhere to relax. Teas, coffee, fresh pastries, salads and sandwiches will be available to enjoy inside or on the 45-seat outdoor terrace.
Intercontinental London – The O2 was first announced in 2013 (see news, July 2013).
