The Londoner, the world’s first super boutique hotel has confirmed it will open its doors this September and has revealed its F&B offer.

Designed in collaboration with world-renowned architectural designers Yabu Pushelberg, the 350-key property features six concept eateries, a members’ club-style private area, a wealth of meeting and event spaces, a cinema and an entire floor dedicated to wellness.

The Londoner is designed to capture the character of London itself, with nods at every turn to British humour – flourishes ironically expected to appeal to both Londoners as well as international guests. Heading up Edwardian Hotels London’s design team and having previously worked at Yabu Pushelberg, Krishma Singh Dear’s background acts as a bridge between the hotel group and its external partners across art, design and curation.

Both the guestrooms and public areas of the hotel are home to a curated roster of art pieces, breathing life and character into the hotel. The art collection throughout is a mixture of price points, mediums and genres and includes classic and contemporary pieces and those from emerging designers.

The Londoner uniquely offers its guests round the clock access to its own private members club style space, The Residence. The 24-hour club, strictly for guests only, is hidden from the happenings of the wider hotel and features an exclusive collection of discrete spaces.

For intimate dining, The Residence’s Y Bar and The Drawing Room offers an à la carte menu and a curated reserve wine list, complemented by signature house cocktails. Guests will also be able to experience The Whisky Room, where a secret passage reveals an intimate 14-cover parlour, for guests to explore the world of whisky including the rare, renowned and the yet-to-be-discovered. Guests can also enjoy complimentary items from the moving Residence Cart – offering fresh breakfast delicacies in the morning and followed by Mediterranean antipasti.

As well as offerings exclusively for hotel guests, The Londoner features several F&B concepts open to the public that honour and re-shape the legacy of the West End, all created by Amir Jati, Creative Director of Food & Beverage Service Excellence at Edwardian Hotels London. With over ten years’ experience leading Nobu’s global private dining and events team, Jati oversees all of the creative direction and operations across The Londoner’s food and beverage outlets. 

Located on the ground floor, The Londoner’s signature restaurant, Whitcomb’s, offers an escape to the Mediterranean and a morning-to-night destination where diners can experience a petit déjeuner, prix fixe lunch, a pre-theatre and an all-day dining menu featuring small plates and mains evoking the essence of contemporary French cooking, with influences from surrounding Mediterranean cuisines.

Radiating from the lobby is The Stage, featuring an all-day programme of food and beverage  menus centred around the luxury, glamour, elegance and sophistication of its headliner, champagne. The Stage’s offering brings about a fusion of classicism through coveted vintages, prestige cuvées and the very best ingredients.

Located on the corner of St Martin’s Street and Orange Street, is a neighbourhood drinking spot Joshua’s Tavern, specialising in terroir-led gintonicas. The drinks menu at Joshua’s Tavern will feature over 50 regionally sourced gins, with each going through a five-stage matching process. Led by The Londoner’s Head Mixologist, Pierpaolo Schirru, each match includes a unique combination of garnish, house-infused bitters and tonic, to harmonise, elevate and compliment the botanicals, led by the nuance of the spirits’ terroir.

Located atop The Londoner with views of the city is its rooftop izakaya lounge, 8 at The Londoner. Presenting a palette of modern Japanese cuisine, innovative mixology, and dramatic design, 8 at The Londoner is timeless yet contemporary, and will showcase a blend of ingredients and traditional techniques.

Nestled within The Retreat, the hotel’s dedicated wellness retreat, is Refuel, a sanctuary offering a food and beverage programme designed to refresh, recharge and rejuvenate. Available to-go post-workout, perched at the bar or in a secluded cabana, the offering at Refuel will include detoxifying smoothies, beauty juices, nourishing body wraps, and Ayurvedic morning ritual bowls, among other flavoursome options.
