Andaz Liverpool Street London has launched Andaz Goes Ape, a festive collaboration with Old Spitalfields Market, Ravensbourne College and local artist Bobby Patmore. The hotel's front window has been lit up by a giant golden Santa gorilla.
Upon entering the hotel, guests will find a rotating gold Barrel of Monkeys which cascades down the Lounge's rotunda. Exclusively designed by Bobby Patmore and Ravensbourne College using 3D printing technology, the golden monkeys hang arm in arm to represent a fun and festive partnership.
Bobby Patmore from Inspitalfields, who is the catalyst behind the project on behalf of Old Spitalfields Market, said:
Ravensbourne College head of commercial development Carrie Wootten added:
Each evening in the hotel Lounge guests can enjoy special themed treats including mini banana bread loaves, banana chips, monkey nuts and mulled wine.

Maker's Monkey is a mixture of Maker's Mark, Drambuie, Banana liqueur and dark chocolate liqueur.
