The new London EDITION hotel from Ian Schrager, founder of Studio 54, is cutting a dash in a Georgian terrace in Fitzrovia. The central London bolt-hole preserves the finest aspects of the historic edifice while creating a style-conscious fusion of old and new for fashionable folk about town.
A buzzing entry lobby is lit with chandeliers, and the elegant yet casual Modern British feel of the Berners Tavern restaurant is enhanced with a montage of still life painting. There is an intimate Punch Room where the tipple of choice is pleasingly presented in antique silver bowls. The rooms, characterised by dark wood panelling and George Smith lounge chairs, reference yacht cabin design.
