The Dixon, Tower Bridge, a new London hotel due to open in January 2019, has revealed further details about what to expect from the new property once it launches to the public next year.
The 193-bedroom hotel in Tooley Street will be operated as part of the Marriott Autograph Collection, and will be home to a new restaurant, Provisioners, headed up by leading restaurateur Clive Watson, co-founder of Village London Restaurants, which is behind the city’s Riding House Café.
The new dining space at The Dixon has been inspired by ‘modern design movements and designers’ studios and homes’ and will give off a European café vibe.
The new Courtroom Bar serving drinks under the original structure of the judge’s bench, with Edwardian oak panelling providing a backdrop for the new cocktail bar.
The former magistrates court and police station is being restored by Consarc Design Group, with twenty2degrees spearheading the redesign of the interiors.
The hotel has been named after John Dixon Butler, the architect who originally constructed the Grade-II listed building in 1905.
Rani Ahluwalia, creative director of M Studio London said: “The Dixon will offer a unique take on the boutique hotel experience, offering guests a neighbourhood feel in the heart of the capital. The design intention was to create something truly beautiful, which intrinsically links back to the origins of the building and the iconic location. Collaboration has been essential to the finely crafted designs and finishes throughout the hotel, drawing upon a wide range of expertise to establish a truly stunning final product.”
On opening in January 2019, The Dixon will join Marriott International’s Autograph Collection Hotels. Autograph Collection comprises a portfolio of hotels, including the Cotton House (Barcelona), Domes of Elounda (Crete) and Hotel am Steinplatz (Berlin).
