Bringing a dose of personality to Canary Wharf’s wave of tower blocks and bland buildings, editor Sophie Ritchie spends the night at the sleek Lincoln Plaza London
Canary Wharf is the true definition of a concrete jungle. It’s a world of studded sky high buildings, plasma screen after plasma screen and a distinct lack of natural greenery (unless you count that little patch of park by the tube, which I do not).
Although it’s not a destination for nature lovers, it does house a few luxury gems in other forms – one of these being Lincoln Plaza London, a towering hotel offering the modern city slicker everything from contemporary interiors to delectable Indian cuisine.
Things to do
1 Take a dip in the hotel’s on-site 18-metre pool or work up a sweat in the basement gym.
2 Head to the ultra sultry Jacks Speak bar for a tipple in 19th century Officers’ Mess-inspired surroundings.
3 Post-dinner, head to the nearby Bōkan bar for even more cocktails on the 39th floor. Striking views and delicious sips await.
The Wordrobe Verdict
Bringing a dose of personality to Canary Wharf’s wave of tower blocks and bland buildings, Lincoln Plaza London will leave you feeling relaxed and ready for a city adventure. Kick back, eat up and enjoy the sleek serenity.
