Latest openings: the Hoxton Southwark, Bank House and more

The Hoxton

The latest Hoxton hotel has opened in the London borough of Southwark. The hotel is a 14-storey, new-build property, with the Seabird restaurant on the rooftop and the Mediterranean-inspired Albie restaurant on the ground floor.

In January, the hotel is set to launch a new workspace concept, known as Working From. The concept is an extension of the unofficial workspaces that have sprung up across the lobbies of the Hoxton's first six hotels, where a band of freelance workers and locals have established themselves with their laptops on an ad hoc basis. Working From will feature 744 desks, five meeting rooms and a wellness studio offering yoga, mindfulness and meditation. Additional facilities will include showers, lockers, bike storage and a members' café delivering healthy desk-side lunches.
