UK: Marking the sixth hotel in the global portfolio and European flagship for Mondrian, the Shoreditch site will open this July at the former Curtain hotel.
Owned by the Reuben Brothers, Mondrian Shoreditch will feature 120 bedrooms including 13 suites, a private room and bar called The Screening Room, a coworking space, rooftop pool and lounge, and main restaurant BIBO.
Interior design studio Goddard Littlefair led the design for Mondrian’s guest rooms, public spaces and food and beverage venues.
Previously The Curtain, which ceased operations as a result of the crisis, the Curtain Members Club will continue under a new guise. A coworking space, The Design Studio, located on the ground floor is for member use and will also host a range of weekly events from panel discussions to live music.
Members will also have access to Altitude Rooftop, The Lounge, Rose Bar and the event space.
At the restaurant BIBO which includes courtyard seating, chef Dani García will serve tapas. A secondary all-day cafe and cocktail bar Christina’s Shoreditch will only source products from local independent suppliers.
García said: “It is an honour to open our first UK based restaurant alongside our amazing partners Accor and the Reuben Brothers, and we are excited to establish the property as the heart of the Shoreditch food scene. I have always been fascinated by the vibrant energy of London and look forward to welcoming guests to our restaurant in the Mondrian hotel which is sure to become a true icon in the district of Shoreditch.”
Mondrian is a brand within the Accor group, operated by sbe. In November 2020 Accor took full ownership of sbe hotel brands which also includes Delano, SLS and Hyde hotels.
Chief operating officer at sbe Chadi Farhat said: “We are very proud to collaborate with Jamie Reuben and his family in bringing the iconic Mondrian brand back to London. The city has been and will continue to be a thriving hub for our lifestyle offerings, and myself and my team are excited to re-establish Mondrian as one of London’s most innovative destinations for lifestyle, hospitality, culinary and mixology experiences for locals and travellers alike.”
The Reuben Brothers said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Accor and sbe to open a European flagship Mondrian hotel which will enhance Shoreditch’s already thriving artistic contribution to our capital. Mondrian Shoreditch will be a go-to luxury lifestyle brand for culinary and culture-seekers from all over the world.”
The opening of Mondrian Shoreditch follows the launch of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon. Bordeux and Cannes are in the pipeline for 2022.
