The Green Rooms, London

A hotel for the arts

A hotel for the arts

Jack Barratt

The hotel is in what was once The North Metropolitan Power and Electricity Company’s offices and showrooms, and has been designed principally for artists, actors and the creative community, who are visiting and working in London.
Vintage British furniture from the Thirties and Forties is dotted around the lobby and bar– with astrung-up bulbs lighting up the central bar. The 50-cover restaurant plays host to six month “incubator” residencies for up and coming chefs. With the support of permanent chefs, residents can establish themselves before moving onwards.
 Although the hotels main aim is to attract artists, anyone can book a room here and enjoy this affordable, fun and creative space. This is a fantastic project and a first for London - what an exciting arrival for Wood Green.
