A new London pub and hotel is to open in the spring from the creative team behind The Culpeper.
The Buxton is a 15-bedroom pub, inspired by ‘British craftsmanship and Old World design’, due to launch in just a few months’ time at the bottom of Brick Lane in East London.
Housed in a former Victorian pub, the building has been transformed by the team behind The Culpeper on Commercial Street which was opened in 2016.
The hotel’s name pays homage to local social reformer, Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton (1786-1845), who lived and worked on Brick Lane and was also a former owner of the Truman brewery.
A hot pink corridor lined with a 1950’s patterned carpet leads to each of the 15 bedrooms. Bedrooms are ‘simple, calm and pared back, featuring bespoke furniture, unique artworks and hand woven rugs made specifically for The Buxton.
The ground floor pub will feature a standalone open kitchen and bar accommodating 30.
The floor will be 1950’s Terrazzo laid to a diagonal pattern discovered during the demolition stage of the project.
The Buxton will also be home to a rooftop terrace for hotel guests, plus an honesty bar and rooftop kitchen garden.
