Pan Pacific London has announced the appointment of Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio to create a destination bar in Devonshire House.

Set to launch Autumn 2021, Dixon’s appointment will further cement Pan Pacific London’s commitment to combining world-class design with hospitality to encourage a new generation of guests to make the City of London their home away from home.

Commenting on the appointment, Tom Dixon says: “We have recently spent a lot of time designing spaces all over the world so it’s a great pleasure to find ourselves with a project on our doorstep commissioned by our friends at Pan Pacific London, who are showing their commitment to London and to bar culture just when most of the sector is frozen.”

He continues: “We look forward to creating an exciting new location in the middle of the City at breakneck speed. We’ll see you all for a cocktail in Autumn 2021.”

Anne Golden, General Manager at Pan Pacific London adds: ‘We are thrilled to have Tom Dixon and his talented design team on board. Tom’s design aesthetic will be perfectly placed in Devonshire House and will complement the existing architecture and heritage of this beautiful building.”

She concludes: “I am confident that they will create a space that is unique and exciting, allowing the bar to become one of the finest destinations in the City of London and a compelling addition to the already vibrant cocktail bar scene in East London.”

Pan Pacific London marks Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s first footprint in Europe. Located in a mixed-use development at One Bishopsgate Plaza, the hotel is currently under construction and will provide a new hospitality offering in the capital.

Fronted by PLP Architecture and with design by Yabu Pushelberg, Pan Pacific London will open in 2021 and feature 237 guestrooms and one-bedroom suites; two restaurants and bars; a wellbeing floor; public plaza; two floors of meeting rooms and event spaces; and the largest ballroom in the square mile.
