Sydell Group Announces Plans For A Nomad Hotel In London’s Coveted Covent Garden Neighbourhood
Scheduled for Summer 2020 – 91 Rooms
The NoMad London will take residence in the heart of Covent Garden inside the historic, grade II-listed building famously known as The Bow Street Magistrates’ Court and Police Station. As the NoMad’s first presence outside the United States, NoMad London will continue to offer a culture of gracious hospitality combined with understated elegance and comfort.
Led by Sydell Group, the iconic 19th century building will be thoughtfully transformed into a 91-room hotel with much of the original architectural features preserved and woven into design. The building’s original Magistrates’ Courtroom will be reimagined as a space for private events and gatherings while a museum with rotating exhibitions will honor the history of the Metropolitan Police Force. A collaboration with New York-based interior design firm Roman & Williams, the design draws inspiration from the original materials, color palette and elaborate architecture of the building and will pay homage to the decorative traditions of England’s heritage while exploring the relationship between the New York and London art scenes.
As with the three previous NoMad Hotels in New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, NoMad London will feature expansive food & beverage under the direction of world-renown Chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara of 3 Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park in New York, which ranked #1 on the 2017 list ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.’ The hotel will also present the first NoMad lounge, an alluring space that invites guests to lounge after dinner in a nighttime venue.
