The long-awaited opening of the Mondrian London has been announced as 30 September.
Mondrian London at Sea Containers House on the South Bank by the Thames is the Morgans Group’s sixth hotel to bear the Mondrian name, and the first to open in Europe.
The hotel is now offering a special preview booking rate of up to 15% off its best flexible rate for bookings made by 30 September.
The new hotel is set to capture the atmosphere of its sister hotels in New York, Los Angeles and Florida, with a nostalgic look back at the early 20th century luxury transatlantic cruise liner.
The interior design has been realised by Design Research Studio under creative director Tom Dixon.
New York chef Seamus Mullen, working with Executive Chef Luke Rayment, has put together a menu that fuses British and American cuisine using fresh ingredients sourced from nearby Borough Market.
An open kitchen, very much the flavour of the moment, features a wood-fired oven and a dining bar in the middle of the room as well as a private dining room and terrace looking out over the Thames.
In the bar, Dandelyan, cocktails have been engineered by Ryan Chetiyawardana inspired by the British countryside as well as incorporating references form around the world.
Mondrian own-brand spa, AGUA, has six spacious treatment suites and spa and glamour lounges.
The 360-bed, 9 million project sees Sea Containers House return to its original raison d’etre – it was designed as a hotel in the 1970s but eventually opened as became offices in the 1980s.
Offices will still have their role to play in the development alongside restaurants and cafes.
The Morgans Group has 3500 employees globally and operates leading lifestyle hotel brands Delano, Mondrian, Hudson and its collection of Originals, which includes renowned London hotels Sanderson and St Martins Lane.
