09 Feb New Openings and Refurbishments
We like to think we’ve got our finger on the pulse here at Seven Events Events and we’re always keen to tell our clients news about what’s hot in London and how things are changing.
Here’s a little insight into what’s happening in London town…
Opening soon is the M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City. The new build 200-room hotel is part of a 23-storey tower development which fuses large scale art, sculpture and architecture in a futuristic looking tower. In an area our clients are crying out for new venues it will have meeting space for 2 – 250 delegates and the building will also include retail and bars, self-storage, business centre, fitness centre. The hotel will have an exceptional roof top bar overlooking London – level 42 of the building is given over to a public bar and viewing gallery. The pioneering new building which tapers and twists to allow daylight penetration at street level has been created by architect Will Alsop.
In December 2013 they sold off everything at The Lanesborough – from the Schimmel Empire grand pianos to the Crystal column chandeliers – to make way for the fully refurbished hotel, re-launched under the Oetker Collection which owns eight other luxury hotels worldwide. The property across from Hyde Park, used as hospital for more than a century, became a luxury hotel in 1991 and in spring 2015 the results of The Lanesborough’s 18-month closure are revealed.
As part of a £500,000 redevelopment, Central Hall Westminster, Central London’s largest purpose built conference venue, recently completed refurbishment work of the undercroft to create a new 200 capacity event space. The new space, Aldersgate, located on the lower ground floor and adjacent to the 200 seater public café, boasts natural light from a conservatory area and features previously hidden early 20th century vaulted ceilings.
