The Hoxton Hotel, Southwark has opened its doors

The Hoxton, Southwark has opened its doors on Blackfriars Road, with 192 rooms, Albie, an all-day dining spot, and Seabird, a seafood rooftop restaurant (opening 16th September) with views across the capital.

This latest opening sees the brand back on familiar ground with its third hotel in London, the city where it all began.

The Hoxton first opened its doors in Shoreditch in 2006, followed by Holborn in 2012, and has since been rolled out globally, with hotels in Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Portland, and Chicago. The Hoxton, Downtown LA is due to open later this year.

A 14-storey new build property, The Hoxton, Southwark is on the south side of Blackfriars Bridge, close to South Bank and Borough, with its famous food market.

The area has a rich history and was a thriving trading hub for London through the industrial revolution. Today, the former factories have been converted into galleries, bars and restaurants, and are among the best the capital has to offer.

Ennismore Design Studio has kitted out the hotel with a familiar industrial aesthetic; concrete ceilings and bare brick walls, which have become a Hoxton signature.

The rooms come in five categories: Shoebox, Snug, Cosy, Roomy and Biggy and all have large Crittall-style windows.

These industrial elements are in contrast to luxurious touches in the rooms such as velvet ruby headboards, comfy lounge chairs, and handmade glassware — a nod to the glass-blowing and tannery factories that once occupied the area.

The usual Hox Perks come as standard, including a mini fridge for you to stock from its reception shop with local products at supermarket prices, and a free daily breakfast bag delivered to your door.

Albie, the hotel’s main restaurant, is an all-day dining spot on the ground floor, with a menu that draws inspiration from the French and Italian Riviera, with dishes made for family-style sharing.

On the 14th floor of the hotel, rooftop restaurant Seabird (opening 16th September) will present London’s longest oyster list, an impressive marble raw bar, and views of the city.
