We were so lucky to be invited to a hard hat tour to the NoMad much anticipated first London hotel set to open its doors on the 13th April. The building is still very much at the construction stage, however, equipped with our hard hats and very glam boots we got a sneak peek of the food and beverage outlets as well as the event spaces and the bedrooms and we can promise you this is going to be incredible!
A bit about the brand if you are not super familiar, The NoMad is owned by the Sydell Group (who is also responsible for The Ned hotel) and has hotel locations in New York, Las Vegas and LA and now making its international debut in London.
The hotel will be housed in historic Covent Garden opposite the Royal Opera House in the Grade II listed building known as The Bow Street Magistrates’ Court. Combining character with comfort, the hotel will retain the building’s colourful history with the design-led by Roman and Williams, renowned NY based design firm.
A perfect example of honouring its history the hotel will house a Metropolitan Police Force Museum with rotating exhibitions open to the public!
Boasting 91 beautiful rooms, the hotel will offer extensive food & beverage options and present the first NoMad lounge, an alluring space that invites guests to lounge after dinner in a nighttime venue.
Without giving too much more away, some of our features we are super excited about are…
- The beautifully adorned hand-painted walls, the intricacy is unreal.
- The lushly landscaped atrium with a soaring glass ceiling and the majestic events Ballroom in what was once the Magistrates’ Courtroom!
- Hidden alcoves linked to the bar, secrets of fun!
- The hotel lives and breaths artwork, what we saw in the bedrooms so far is phenomenal and we are sure it will only get better in the guest areas of the hotel too!
- They have the guest in mind, in typical NoMad style all areas have been carefully thought out and will suit everyone's needs (every NoMad has a library, yes a real one! And this one is no different!)
- They are keeping the history of the building alive, honouring the stories the building has to tell and really celebrating its heritage.
We can’t wait to go back and experience it in its full glory come April!!
