There’s no place like Sloane. Located in an iconic five-storey Victorian red brick building, Sloane Place is Chelsea’s latest boutique abode with 5 different room categories to choose from and plenty of dishy happenings
Say bonjour to boutique hotels this autumn. Inspired by the mischievous and convivial spirit of Chelsea in its heyday is Sloane Place, which officially opens its doors this September. The new hotel is the sister of the 99-year-old Sloane Club next door and much like its sibling, guests can expect a property filled with charm and contemporary style.
Located in an iconic five-storey Victorian red brick building typical of Lower Sloane Street, Sloane Place has the air of continental Europe with a design courtesy of JSJ Design. Outdoor tables are perfectly positioned to people watch whilst enjoying a lazy brunch, or a bottle of rose with friends.
Stepping inside, a ground floor restaurant opens into a buzzy café/bar during the day where locals come for a croissant and coffee in the morning and a light lunch later on. Weekend brunch is a must – the pancakes are already a firm favourite with Chelsea-ites.
When it comes to interiors, expect teal and navy-blue furnishings, parquet flooring and bistro tables that create a warm, fun space flooded with light from floor to ceiling windows facing the street. When evening descends, the lights dim and the restaurant is transformed into a sophisticated dining destination to enjoy a delicious and unpretentious dinner.
Upstairs, rest your head in rooms decked out with mustard-hued soft furnishings and silvery grey walls. With five room categories from Cosy to Suite and prices starting from £200, guests can expect a luxurious stay in the heart of Chelsea at an accessible price point.
On the food front, menus are created by Executive Chef, Bernhard Mayer (formerly of The Savoy and Four Seasons, Park Lane) and Head Chef, Maryono Maryono. The duo combine their European and South-East Asian heritage and experience into signature dishes such as their Lobster & Prawn burger, Rose County beef tataki and bao buns. The Sloane Place mixologists have created a mouth-watering cocktail list to match the exciting fusion dishes on the menu.
Cocktail in hand, head downstairs to the Hideaway, an art deco basement bar, where there are plenty of corners to while away an evening with a group of friends or a lover.
From 30th September, The Hideaway will also host bi-weekly live music evenings offering an intimate, fun space with great drinks, snacks, and atmosphere – the perfect antidote to post-lockdown living. Sloane Place also boasts a Roof Terrace as a third foodie spot to venture onto whatever the weather as it has been set up to be enjoyed in all seasons.
Ideal for exploring, the hotel is a 2-minute walk from Sloane Square Station, and minutes walk from cultural institutions such as the Saatchi Gallery, the Royal Court, and the lively King’s Road. Sloane Place is a welcoming new destination for out of towners and Londoners alike where there’s always a reason to return, whether for a night’s stay, a weekend brunch, or an evening at the bar.
