VENUE SUGGESTIONS

We have put the following rooms on hold for you and if you'd like to book or arrange viewings we can make the introductions needed!

VENUE ONE

The Bloomsbury Hotel, Tottenham Court Road

AVAILABLE ON FIRST OPTION 4th or 18th OCTOBER

 

A major redesign and refurbishment of The Bloomsbury, a 1928 Sir Edwin Lutyens, Grade-II listed building on Great Russell Street in London has been recently launched.

The hotel has been beautifully and sensitively transformed following a multimillion pound investment programme which most recently includes a new reception area, Guest Living Room and stunning grand salon bar - The Coral Room.

The original entrance at the side of the property has been restored, incorporating a new glazed canopy to enhance the guest arrival experience. 

The original flight of Portland Stone steps leads guests into the new reception area and intimate space which features a Lutyens-inspired Guest Living Room. Here a colour palette of muted greens and pinks, are accented with an electric mix of furnishings, artwork and lighting. As well as eye catching, heritage-inspired botanical wallpaper, there is a Lutyens’ designed fireplace – a welcoming focal point - all designed to create a feel more akin to a private home, than a traditional hotel.

The magnificent Coral Room is located within a 2,100-sq. ft. double height space at the front of the hotel and was designed in collaboration with internationally-acclaimed, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Mindful of the original Lutyens design and the building’s listed status, this bar area has been sensitively reimagined. The original panelled walls are retained and have been given a high-gloss lacquer finish in vivid coral – a colour that Lutyens was fond of. A striking feature are the five bespoke Murano glass chandeliers, specially created for the space. Walls come to life with 36 original pieces of art commissioned with English illustrator Luke Edward Hall of art and inspired by the surrounding Bloomsbury area and the architecture of Lutyens. 

The final chapter of the wider restoration of The Bloomsbury, follows the very successful launches of the award-winning Dalloway Terrace and The Bloomsbury Club Bar, which were added to the property in 2016.
