Mondrian to be reestablished as one of London’s most innovative and glamorous destinations for hospitality, culinary and mixology experiences for locals and travelers alike.
Accor & sbe to open Mondrian Shoreditch London in Spring 2021. The concept includes the world-famous Chef Dani Garcia‘s first culinary concept to the United Kingdom.
SBE announced the plan to open ten additional Mondrian Hotels by 2022.
The five-star London hotel, The Curtain, will be transformed into a Mondrian hotel in collaboration with current owner Reuben Brothers. Marking the high-end brand’s return to London, the opening will be Mondrian’s sixth hotel in the global portfolio and a European flagship. The prestigious property will be converted by Accor hospitality group & sbe to the Mondrian Shoreditch London after an update and restyling of the hotel, planned for completion next year. The Curtain Members’ Club will continue to operate alongside the re-branded hotel, providing a world-class offering to members.
The opening demonstrates a firm belief in London continuing to be one of the most vibrant capitals in the world highlighting Shoreditch in particular.
Chef Dani García said: “We look forward to establishing the property as the heart of the Shoreditch food scene in our first ever UK restaurant. I have always been drawn by the magic and energy of London and this opportunity along SBE, Accor and the Reuben Brothers is a dream come true for us.”
The 120-room property sits in the heart of Shoreditch, London’s creative and cultural hub. sbe will establish several of its signature food and beverage brands at Mondrian Shoreditch London, including a culinary experience by world- famous chef Dani García. This will be the first time Chef García will open a culinary experience with sbe in London. sbe will also revive the taste-making rooftop lounge Rumpus Room, long-term fixture in London’s glamorous nightlife scene, and will bring an award-winning mixology concept to the property.
The opening advances sbe and Accor’s previously announced plan to open 10 new Mondrian properties by 2022 and follows the company’s recent launch of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, and announcement to open Mondrian Bordeaux and Mondrian Cannes in 2021. The return of the Mondrian brand to London reflects the continued strategic expansion of the brand’s international footprint in partnership with Accor, which will include soon-to-be announced Mondrian properties in Australia, the Dominican Republic, Germany, the Maldives, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. By 2022, sbe plans to open 50 new hotels internationally, of which 10 will fall under the iconic Mondrian brand.
