This Month in Premier Hospitality 9.7
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Hospitality.
In this month’s issue we step into the Great Scotland Yard Hotel; we check out Bob Bob Cité; and we unveil the Clonakilty Distillery.
Leading London developer Galliard Group has completed the 3.5 year construction of the new Great Scotland Yard Hotel. Once the location of the original Scotland Yard Metropolitan Police HQ and later offices for the Ministry of Defence, the site is now home to a magnificent 93,000 sq. ft., five star hotel, owned by Lula Group International and operated by Hyatt.
One of the finest five-star hotels ever built in London, the seven-storey hotel at 1-5 Great Scotland Yard provides 153 bedrooms and suites. The 11 suites, including a spectacular townhouse suite, were created from part of the original Scotland Yard Premises.
Bob Bob Cité, the much anticipated restaurant, has opened its doors in London’s spectacular Leadenhall Building. Bob Bob Cité accommodates 190 covers across two dining rooms. Three private dining suites, with a reception room, dining room and city views, each seat eighteen guests.
The interior by BradyWilliams studio aims to equal the glamour and flamboyance of Bob Bob Ricard (recently hailed ‘a national treasure’) but with a contemporary, urban design befitting its Square Mile location.
Opened early spring 2019 the Clonakilty Distillery represents The Scully’s family farm on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean in Clonakilty, West Cork, Ireland. The brand makes whiskey and gin on their farm, with The Clonakilty Distillery offering a space for their collections of whiskies and gins, as well as a unique sensory visitor experience in which visitors have the chance to distil their own gin.
The Clonakilty Distillery building was is in the heart of the town and was purchased in 2015. Construction started in January of 2018, finishing early this year, taking about 14 months.
With all this and more it’s time to sit back and tuck into another helping of Premier Hospitality. Go well!
