Come for the famous restaurant, stay for the domed ceiling. This marble-walled bank-turned-luxury hotel embraces London’s historic past and its modern sensibilities. Perfect for business trippers and families alike, Threadneedles will delight you from the first look.
In the heart of The City, historic Threadneedles is a 130,000 sq. ft. listed building built as a bank in 1856 and re-envisioned as a hotel and restaurant just recently. Rooms are both elegant and relaxed, done in muted tones, with an emphasis on natural wood and soft lighting. Some of the older rooms were once bank executives' offices and have grand features such as paneled mahogany doors and marble fireplaces. Other rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, or views over pretty Finch Lane.
Legendary chef Marco Pierre White has his restaurant on premises, perfect for a power lunch. The old banking counter is now the characterful hotel bar. But the very best thing about Threadneedles is the domed ceiling in the lobby, formerly the banking hall. Some say it's second only to the domed ceiling of nearby St. Paul’s Cathedral. Certainly, it feels like a roof under which important things happen.
Caught between the sights of Soho and the buzz of Shoreditch, Threadneedles occupies an enviable location in the heart of London’s City district. It sits a short walk from classic sights like St. Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge, and across the Thames from Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. Threadneedles is also close to the lively and youthful Liverpool Street area. Find a classy Prohibition-style skyscraper bar at City Social, or head a few blocks north and indulge in one of London’s few 24-hour greasy spoon bars, Polo. For great food and insane views of the iconic Gherkin, Duck & Waffle serves high-end comfort food all day. Toodles!
