Pan Pacific London, the group’s first footprint in Europe, has opened its doors in the heart of the city’s Aldgate district.

A new statement of indulgence, the hotel is located at One Bishopsgate Plaza, a two-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station, and combines sincere Singaporean hospitality with contemporary London design.

Sitting in the landmark tower at One Bishopsgate Plaza, the hotel is situated near many of the City’s finest attractions including high-end shopping in Spitalfields, the Barbican cultural hub, and the stylish Shoreditch neighbourhood.

Epitomising the juxtaposition of old and new London architecture, Bishopsgate Plaza encapsulates not only a 43-storey bronze tower encompassing Pan Pacific London and private Sky Residence apartments, but also the 144-year-old Devonshire House featuring designer shops, a destination restaurant, and a contemporary cocktail bar. A landscaped public plaza seamlessly connects these two cultural hubs together, making it a 24-hour destination for meeting, living and working.

The hotel, including its accommodations, event spaces and public areas, has been created by esteemed design duo Yabu Pushelberg, who bring their signature style to the hotel sparked by the fusion of south-east Asian vibrancy and the refined elegance of traditional British design.

A unique sanctuary in the middle of The City of London, modern lines and artistic flair run throughout the hotel’s public spaces whilst guest rooms offer a sense of peace and calm with curved walls and neutral colour palettes.

The hospitality offering at Pan Pacific London encompasses five specialist venues incorporating unique elements of the flavour, diversity and elegance of modern Singapore.

Led by award-winning Executive Chef Lorraine Sinclair and renowned Executive Pastry Chef Cherish Finden, the hotel’s Straits Kitchen restaurant, Ginger Lily bar and The Orchid Lounge drawing room delights guests with new and innovative flavours.

Located at the top of the lobby’s spiral staircase, Straits Kitchen is an ode to Southeast Asia both through design and cuisine. Embracing a respectful approach to cooking inspired by heritage recipes, the menu at Straits Kitchen has been carefully crafted by Sinclair working alongside Singaporean Group Executive Chef Tony Khoo and showcases the melting pot of cuisines represented in multicultural Singapore.

Quirky, bold and bright, Straits Kitchen features two private dining spaces, custom dining tables and a custom wine-cabinet-as-art. Custom murals have been brought to life by En Viu which further enforce the restaurant’s Eastern influence, depicting Asian botanicals mirroring the unique flavours on the menu. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer guests unparalleled views of The City.

Located on the first floor, The Orchid Lounge offers a serene Afternoon Tea experience from award-winning Executive Pastry Chef Cherish Finden.
