London's Ace Hotel didn't manage to last the pandemic, with confirmation that it had closed permanently back in September. But just because Ace has gone doesn't mean that there won't be a hotel there. Instead - One Hundred Shoreditch will be opening in the space this autumn.
It comes from the group who also own the swanky Pulitzer Amsterdam and London's Sea Containers (that was taken independent back in 2019) and they have big plans. Across the building, there will be six restaurants and bars, so it'll be a big change for the area.
News on what those bars will be is a little light on the ground. though. One will be a "restaurant and wine bar specialising in locally and sustainably sourced seafood" alongside a rooftop bar and terrace and a destination cocktail bar, coffee shop, lobby bar and take-out hatch.
There will be a redesign, of course, and they say that the "!interiors mirroring the new grown-up character of the neighbourhood." Hmm - feels like a teeny bit of a slight to the character of the Ace - we'll have to see how this one pans out.
