London Lifestyle Hotel – New Opening

Lifestyle hospitality brand Locke has opened its third London property in bustling Bermondsey.

Comprising 143 studio apartments, Bermonds Locke will also be home to Robin Gill’s newly relocated restaurant The Dairy Bermondsey; third-wave coffee shop and all-day dining destination Shaman; co-working space and wellness studio.

Designed to be lived in, each individual studio apartment is equipped with fully fitted kitchens and laundry facilities, as well as living space, offering guests another way to stay than the traditional hotel room.

Combined with activated public spaces and a locally-led cultural programme, Bermonds Locke will simultaneously allow guests to enjoy the benefits of a lifestyle hotel. The flexibility of the home-meets-hotel format appeals to a broad range of travellers across the leisure and business markets, for both extended and short stays. As the demands of contemporary travellers rapidly change, Locke’s burgeoning success and European expansion plans put it at the centre of the future of travel.

“We are delighted to open our third property in London with Bermonds Locke. Locke aims to liberate guests from the confines of a typical hotel room by creating beautiful apartments that are designed to be lived in. The type of guest we’re accommodating wants to explore life as a local, and so the Bermondsey neighbourhood has played a significant role in defining the aesthetic, partners and programming,” said Stephen McCall, CEO of edyn.

The opening of Bermonds Locke comes as the brand continues to expand both within the UK and internationally. With further openings planned in Dublin, Berlin, Lisbon, Munich and Copenhagen, Locke is also slated to open its fourth London outpost in Dalston in late 2020.

Opening rates from £99 per night.
