Shoreditch is one of London’s most fashionable neighbourhoods – if a gallery opens or a restaurant pops up, nine times out of ten, it’ll be here. Soho House chose Shoreditch for its rooftop pool, and the cocktails don’t come much finer than down on Hoxton Square. And it’s here that you’ll find Leonard Street, a brand new apartment with views of the Shard and some uber-fab designer furniture. Bright, warm, and oh-so-quiet, this slick city pad is just the place to crash after a long day in town. The later the hour, the more Shoreditch swings, so make the very most of that disco nap…
Your host runs his own consultancy firm, and his primary home is in Windsor. He and your hostess are keenly athletic – look out for his collection of cycling memorabilia in the hall.
The sitting room of Leonard Street is as energetic as you’d expect. Album covers sing from the walls, while Eames chairs perch atop a shining wooden floor. The snazzy kitchen’s been built to the highest specifications, and you can eat either at the breakfast bar, or café-style beneath the Flatiron Building. The cream leather sofa’s enlivened by zinging turquoise throws, and the charcoal corner sofa folds out into a bed, and can be concealed behind a sliding screen. The master bedroom is relaxed and spacious, with mirrored bedside tables and acres of milkily plush carpet, while the bathroom’s white tiles are given a touch of drama with clever concealed lighting.
All kinds of everything
You’ve some of London’s top nightlife within a brief stagger – the bars of Hoxton Square, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen, and, on Shoreditch High Street, the best Vietnamese food outside Hanoi. Hipsters should head for Spitalfields Market for one-off pieces by new designers, while suited types will find that they’re within walking distance of the City. And if you’re visiting the West End, the tube from Old Street to Oxford Circus takes fifteen minutes.
There is a double sofabed in the sitting room which can be set up for your stay, with a collapsible wardrobe provided for storage. Please let our reservations team know if you would like this to be arranged.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
