Glass visits Sloane Place – London’s hippest new boutique hotel

IF YOU are looking for a chic, atmospheric bolthole while staying in London then look no further than the gorgeous Sloane Place. Newly opened in September, this boutique hotel exudes charm and style and has already become a firm favourite for cocktails and brunch among the locals.

The property is located in the heart of stylish Chelsea, just around the corner from Sloane Square, the Royal Court theatre and the famous fashion haven of King’s Road. With only 27 rooms, this is one of the city’s hottest and most exclusive tickets.

The dining experience is helmed by Executive Chef, Bernhard Mayer (formerly of The Savoy and Four Seasons, Park Lane) and Head Chef, Maryono Maryono. The pair met while working at a Four Seasons hotel in Asia and have brought back with them their love of Asian cuisine. The duo combine their European and South-east Asian heritage and experience into signature dishes such as their lobster and prawn burger, Rose County beef tataki and heavenly sticky pork bao buns.

Bar Sloane Place

The bar is manned by master mixologists who conjure up highly creative and beautiful cocktails and below the restaurant is a hidden bar/lounge, aptly named The Hideaway, which hosts live music – such a rarity these days – biweekly. The hotel also has a roof terrace for dining and cocktails.

Restaurant Sloane Place

Despite its recent opening, the hotel has an impressive lineage and is the sister property to the 99-year-old Sloane Club next door. The club was founded by Princess Helena, daughter of Queen Victoria, in 1922 and was originally a Service Women’s Club for the exclusive use of women in the forces. It was the first ever women only members club and was a bold statement of women’s liberation for the time. Men were not allowed entry until the 1960s. Today’s membership is open to all.
