Set in the heart of Dalston, travelers all over the world will be enchanted with the newest accommodation in the area that brings its brand of luxury and relaxation. Kingsland Locke, set to open this coming May, is ready to welcome visitors with state-of-the-art offerings and their signature hospitality.
Situated in one of London’s most eclectic neighborhoods, the hotel will house 124 contemporary studio apartments, as well as an on-site microbrewery and gin distillery, all-day restaurant, complimentary co-working space, a workout studio, and a coffee shop. The lower ground floor boasts a large, naturally-lit atrium space that will transition from a relaxing atmosphere by day to a lively restaurant and bar come nightfall.
East London-based studio Red Deer came up with Kingsland Locke’s refreshing design, taking inspiration from the vibrant colors and scenes of the surrounding Dalston neighborhood. Their hallways are swanky in vibrant peachy pinks, set against rough raw renders. The reception desk and waiter stations, on the other hand, mimic the vernacular of the market stalls by using metal framing against a mélange of colorful tiling.
In contrast, the rooms have been designed with a more muted palette, using raw textures and subtle tones to encourage rest and relaxation. All studios will feature fully-equipped kitchens complete with high spec appliances, as well as custom-made green velvet sofas and living space. The hotel’s communal spaces are heavy planting and greenery throughout.
The property will also be home to KRAFT Dalston, an exciting new food and drink venture formed between German Kraft Brewery, Jim and Tonic Distillery, and Le Bab.
KRAFT Dalston sets up a gin distillery and microbrewery on site at Kingsland Locke, reducing the outlet’s CO2 footprint by 75% by eliminating any unnecessary packaging and deliveries to the site. Meanwhile, Le Bab will expand east for the first time—returning to London’s kebab heartland, which first inspired its modern take on the traditional kebab. Shaman will also be located on the ground floor, serving third-wave coffee and grab-and-go items to guests and passersby.
The best part of staying in Kingsland Locke is it’s proximity with some of East London’s favorite spots, including the nearby Broadway Market, Columbia Road Flower Market, and Dalston Curve Garden.
With the thoughtful design, excellent food and drink collaborations, and services fitting a boutique lifestyle hotel, this new-hotel-on-the-block is a lavish home away from home that you’ll love coming back to.
