D&D London is about to open an 80 bedroom luxury hotel at South Place, off Moorgate in the heart of the City. The hotel will contain a number of restaurants and bars, including a bar and grill on the ground floor and spectacular 7th floor rooftop restaurant and bar with an outdoor terrace overlooking the City skyline. The development commenced on site in 2010 and opens September 2012.
South Place Hotel brings together the City and the East End. Located between Moorgate and Liverpool Street in the City of London, South Place is the first hotel from D&D London. 80 luxurious bedrooms with bespoke artwork by emerging, London-based artists; bathroom amenities by up-and-coming perfumer, James Heeley; floor-to-ceiling windows and the most comfortable beds in town.
The hotel has been developed in partnership with Frogmore, designed by Allies & Morrison, with interiors by Conran + Partners - and, as you might expect of us, there's as much an emphasis on eating and drinking as there is on bedrooms and sleeping.
On the ground floor, 3 South Place is an all-day British diner that's open from breakfast until late at night, with an adjacent bar that is buzzing both during the day and late into the evening, when our in-house DJ takes to the decks. On the first floor, we have a gym and spa; a residents' games room; five private dining and meeting rooms; and a 'secret garden" (you'll have to drop by to find out more !). And to complete the final piece of the South Place jigsaw - Angler, a beautiful seafood restaurant on the roof of the hotel with a lovely outdoor terrace.
South Place Hotel derives its inspiration from many of the things that make London buzz: cultural diversity, local neighbourhoods, understated wit and an easy sense of self. We've spent a lot of time and had a lot of pleasure attending to the details that we hope will make South Place Hotel distinctively different. We have made contemporary art an important element of the look and culture of South Place and set up an annual prize with the winning artwork enjoying pride of place in a window next to the entrance. Our Chef, Tony Fleming’s menus are bursting with flavour and full of provenance. And we’ve had some fun creating stories around spies and secret agents, the 'collision' of City and East End, and our take on what makes London right now so creative and influential.
