VIVI

Opens 25th February 2019

VIVI Opens 25th February 2019 VIVI at Centre Point opens on 25th February 2019. Inspired by the 1960s, echoing Centre Point's 1966 completion, the menu at VIVI is unashamedly nostalgic British comfort food. Housed in the distinctive 385 foot tall building in Oxford Street, VIVI is an all day restaurant at Centre Point, occupying the main floor of the bridge link overlooking the square and Oxford Street. Run by rhubarb (who also do the food at the Sky Garden, Verdi Italian Kitchen at the Royal Albert Hall and Gallery Mess at the Saatchi Gallery), the restaurant serves modern versions of favourite old school dishes like chicken a la king, putting sauteed chicken, mushrooms, cream and white wine with hot biscuits. Cauliflower cheese croquettes with slow roasted tomatoes and Lea & Perrins sauce is best followed by banana splits to share. Divided into four areas, VIVI includes: a bar serving cocktails paired to the bites menu; a dining area where you can get an all-day British menu of modernised classics; VIVI Liquid Lounge for power shakes and superfood shots; and VIVI Gallery, serving an express menu of small bites as well as leisurely afternoon teas - with views over New Oxford Street. 2019/02/25 Where:

Lucknow Social

Opens 4th March 2019

Lucknow Social Opens 4th March 2019 Lucknow Social opens on 4th March 2019. Posh kebabs, fragrant biryanis and dishes based on the beloved food of the Mughal emperors inspire much of the cooking at Lucknow Social, a neighbourhood Indian restaurant from Dhruv Mittal and the team behind DUM Biryani. Specialising in Lucknowi cuisine, the low and slow Awadhi cooking typical of the city in North India, means the Maddox Street restaurant serves fluffy biryanis, galauti kebabs and curries at the centre of the table. At lunch, visitors can order quick bites including a multi-layered gilafi kulcha with a choice of chicken kakori or lamb galauti kebab, and a smaller version of the biryani to take away. Eat in and you can enjoy the rustic space decorated in earthy tones and a soundtrack of acoustic Indian tunes and Urdu pop. Duck under an archway to get to the back of the restaurant where there's a more industrial look and a wall of living plants growing beneath a skylight. Brightly-coloured enamelware, tables embedded with white or green marble and banquettes upholstered with vintage textiles complete the look. 2019/03/04 Where:

The Stratford Opens April 2019 The Stratford opens in April 2019. The Manhattan Loft Corporation, the firm which introduced loft living to the UK in 1992 and more recently gave the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel its remarkable makeover, is behind The Stratford, a stylish 150-room hotel which occupies the seven lower levels of the 42 storey Manhattan Loft Gardens. The striking double-cantilevered tower has been designed by architects SOM who were also behind the Burj Khalifa and One World Trade Centre. The mixed used development comes with three 'sky gardens', one on the 7th floor, a second on the 35th and a third on the 36th floor, ensuring that residents are never more than nine stories from an outdoor space. Sharing the use of communal spaces with residents of the 34 storey tower above, hotel guests have access to a swimming pool, spa facilities, daily yoga classes, meeting and conference spaces as well as an external roof garden that overlooks the Olympic Park. Restaurant offerings include Allegra on the seventh floor from ex-Chiltern Firehouse chef Patrick Powell and the ground-floor brasserie from Ben Harrington, formerly of Soho House. The Sunday Times Style Magazine says, "if anyone can rekindle our love of tall buildings, it's Handelsman", the legendary founder of the Manhattan Loft Corporation. GETTING THERE: The site sits to the immediate north of Stratford International rail station and the Docklands Light Railway giving excellent transport links. 2019/04/15 Where:

Great Scotland Yard Hotel Opens summer 2019 Great Scotland Yard Hotel opens in summer 2019. The original Scotland Yard headquarters is being transformed into a luxury hotel where the most expensive rooms cost £10,000 a night. The Edwardian, Grade II-listed site, which was home to Scotland Yard from 1829 until 1890, becomes a £100 million hotel with 236 rooms, and restaurant, bar and function facilities. The historic address, which was rebuilt in 1910, was where investigations into the likes of Jack The Ripper were centred, and has featured in the novels of Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle. The grand seven-storey building has also been used by other Government departments, most recently by the Ministry of Defence as a storage base, and has also featured in the 2007 film 'Atonement' starring Keira Knightley. London developer Galliard Group is working with EPR Architects who designed the back of house areas of the Rosewood - another stunning revival of a Edwardian Belle Epoque building in London. They are doing a sensitive conversion, replacing the 1980s additions while adding new attic storeys and maintaining the principle elements of the original building. Once construction has been completed in 2019 it will become one of the capital's most expensive hotels. 2019/07/01 Where:

Royal Wharf Pier Opens late 2019 Royal Wharf Pier is expected to open to the public in late 2019. Jutting out into the Thames like the British seaside piers of old, Royal Wharf Pier is both a functional and leisure facility.

The pier links the Royal Wharf development - a neighbourhood of 3,385 riverside homes, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes, part of the £3.5bn Royal Docks regeneration - with The O2, Canary Wharf and as far west as Putney via Battersea. 2019/12/15 Where:

You can see the Millennium Park, Thames Barrier and Canary Wharf from here. Its strikingly modern design is by London-based architects Nex who have used integrated seating, a sheltered waiting area and durable marine grade timber to create a metal shelter, providing warmth and protection from the elements. The pier links the Royal Wharf development - a neighbourhood of 3,385 riverside homes, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes, part of the £3.5bn Royal Docks regeneration - with The O2, Canary Wharf and as far west as Putney via Battersea.

With its carb based dishes, cooked by a chef while you watch, and 'top up' card payment system, it's easy to see why it's a hit with friends who want to avoid the hassle of splitting the bill. There are ten different pasta shapes - penne, campanelle and tagliatelle as well as spaghetti and fusilli spelt - making up 20 different dishes on the menu. Everything from sauces to dressings, dolci and dough are made daily from scratch on site so you get quality food in a relaxed, casual setting.

The Dixon

Opened January 2019

The Dixon Opened January 2019 After pre-opening in December 2018, The Dixon hotel officially launched in January 2019. Formerly the home of the Old Tower Bridge Magistrates Court, the Autograph Collection Hotel transforms this historic building into a traditional boutique hotel offering 193 individually styled rooms and suites. Named after John Dixon Butler - the architect who originally constructed the Tooley Street building in 1905 - the hotel mixes old and new. The 193 rooms, including nine suites, present an artful mix of heritage design - simple brickwork, tall windows and modern furniture - and modern art. Old cell keys have been recreated into artwork while pieces of furniture reclaimed from the old courthouse have been repurposed. This echo of the building's past as a courtroom continues into the Provisioners restaurant, run by leading restaurateur Clive Watson (Riding House Cafe). Curated artworks from local artists hang on the walls and all rooms come with state-of-the-art technology, including smart TVs and complimentary ultra-fast Wi-Fi. 2019/01/01 Where:
