Design-led hospitality brand, Locke, has opened its second London-based hotel; Millennium Bridge the chosen location for a staggering 113-room property, and setting the stage for two more openings in the capital later this year.
Locke at Broken Wharf follows the success of their existing aparthotels in East London, Manchester and Edinburgh, and is situated in a prime spot on the banks of the Thames with views over the Tate Modern. With unforgettable interiors and design design inspired by the property’s surrounds, longterm collaborators Grzywinski+Pons have created a pastel-hued wonderland for aesthetes that fuses the pros of a high-end lifestyle hotel with the flexibility of an apartment.
The lively social spaces here at Locke at Broken Wharf consist of all-day eatery Deli Cat & Sons, serving warm bagels, hearty salads and platters of charcuterie meats and cheese; a collaboration with Coffee by Bedouin, offering guests all from flat white’s to matcha on the go; and a dynamic coworking area with a cultural programme spanning wellness, fitness, art and music. For contemporary travellers whose needs evolve, their myriad demands are met with style and sensibility again at the latest from Locke.
Interiors comprise a mix of natural tones and pastel colours, contrasted by white marble worktops and brass details. Designed by Matthew Grzywinski, the generously-sized apartments feature fully equipped kitchens and furniture designed largely by the New York-based designer himself. Perfect for both short and longterm stays in the capital, guests can choose between the 29 square metre Locke Studios and 33 square metre River Suites. With a host of hip markets, delis and shops in the surrounding area, one can enjoy truly authentic home-from-home living; simply stock up on fresh goodies and prepare them in your private kitchen kitted out with the latest Smeg appliances.
For style-forward flexible local living with rates from £135 per night (which is cheaper than a lot of London rents), Locke at Broken Wharf offers its guests a host of lifestyle benefits in a space of truly unforgettable aesthetics. Another winner from a brand on a roll.
