One year on from its launch, The Curtain hotel in London’s Shoreditch has evolved once again with the launch of a new co-working space.
Designed to capitalise on the growth in communal office space, the hotel and members club has opened The Design Studio, a place for both guests and members to work.
The new space will also host a number of events and talks scheduled for the coming months.
Michael Achenbaum, The Curtain’s founder, says: “Communal workspaces are becoming an integral part of Londoners’ lives and the way in which modern people now conduct work. Our hotel is truly global, and this space ensures people can work hard by day in The Design Studio and then move through to our hotel’s other spaces to play harder!”
The Design Studio is the latest addition to The Curtain, hotelier Michael Achenbaum’s high-profile restaurant, hotel and members club in Shoreditch.
Earlier this year, The Curtain Hotel was sold to the Reuben Brothers, who entered into a long-term agreement with Achenbaum.
The sale of the six-storey, 120-bedroom hotel and members club in London, which opened in 2017, was ‘purely transactional’, with no changes made to the management or operations of The Curtain.
A subsidiary of Michael Achenbaum, of the Gansevoort Hotel Group and Jeffrey Levine, the co-developers of the project, retained management of the property via a long-term lease.
Alongside its 120 bedrooms, The Curtain is also home to a rooftop pool and restaurant plus a wellness centre and five bars, including Billy’s Bar and The Courtyard.
It is also home to Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant and The Green Room cocktail bar, named one of ‘London’s Best Bars Right Now’ by Conde Nast Traveller UK soon after opening in July 2018.
