The hotly-anticipated new hotel, NoMad London has announced it will open its doors in December.
The first UK NoMad hotel will open inside the former Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station in London, headed up by experienced general manager, Kate Hart.
The NoMad London, led by Sydell Group and in partnership with investment firm BTC UK, will mark the brand’s first site outside the US.
The Sydell Group also runs The Ned in partnership with Soho House Group.
The hotel is being designed in collaboration with New York based firm, Roman and Williams, with Sydell having worked previously with the company as the developed of Ace New York and Freehand Hotels in the US.
Now the 19th century building will be transformed into a 91-bedroom hotel with many of the original architectural features preserved and incorporated into the design.
The building’s original Magistrates’ Courtroom will be reinvented as a space for private events, while a museum with rotating exhibitions will depict the history of the Metropolitan Police Force.
The new hotel will pay homage to the ‘traditions of England’s heritage, while exploring the relationship between New York and London art scenes’, and house an art programme celebrating the influence of post-war American art and European avant-garde.
Executive chef Ian Coogan will lead the kitchen at NoMad London and will be joined by culinary captain Abram Bissell, who rejoins the team after earning two Michelin Stars during his time at The Modern in NYC.
In addition to overseeing the main restaurant, executive chef Ian Coogan will serve a shared plates menu inspired by his Mexican heritage in the hotel’s all-day dining space.
The Side Hustle will evoke the comfort of a ‘pub-like environment’ paired with the ‘refinement’ of NoMad’s signature style and is located on the corner where the entrance to the police station once stood.
The hotel will also present the first NoMad lounge, Common Decency.
NoMad will be the fourth property in the portfolio for the Sydell Group, joining hotels in New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
