One Leicester Street in London: Come for Dinner, Stay the Night

September 18, 2013

Earlier this week we featured the new Ace Hotel in Shoreditch; here’s another project from the same design team, the newly imagined One Leicester Street. Formerly the St. John Hotel (we covered it back in 2011), the hotel is now owned and operated by Unlisted Collection, a family of design-oriented hotels. The new owners have spiffed up the interiors and overhauled the look of the restaurant (happily, chef Fergus Henderson is still manning the stoves). For booking information, go to One Leicester Street.
