Ham Yard Hotel
Monday 12 May 2014


Firmdale Hotels is set to open its eighth London property, Ham Yard Hotel, on 1st June 2014. Set on a three-quarter acre site in the heart of bustling Soho, a couple of blocks from Mayfair, the hotel will revolve around a unique tree filled pedestrian thoroughfare connecting Great Windmill Street to Denman Street, opening up historic Ham Yard and Denman Place to the public for the first time since the 1960s. Its centrepiece will be a specially commissioned large scale bronze sculpture by Tony Cragg.

Tim and Kit Kemp, owners of Firmdale Hotels', have designed Ham Yard Hotel with a distinctly urban village feel. Alongside the hotel's 91 individually designed bedrooms and suites will be 24 residential apartments, a collection of 13 individual specialist stores and an airy restaurant and bar with outdoor dining and drinking.

Interiors will be beautifully designed by Kit Kemp in her award-winning luxurious, modern British style for which her innovative, exciting mix of colour, pattern, texture and art is world renowned. As well as a sumptuous drawing room and library, the hotel will play host to Firmdale's first Soholistic Spa with a fully equipped gym, including a hypoxic chamber for altitude training. There will be a 188 seat, state-of-the art theatre, several spacious private dining and event rooms and an original 1950s bowling alley imported from Texas, complete with bar and lounge. To top it off, there is a leafy rooftop garden with sweeping views across the London skyline.
