East London’s new hotel The Gantry to open in November 2021

by | 17 Sep 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

The Gantry, the latest addition to the Curio Collection by Hilton brand, will feature 291 rooms and an 18th-floor rooftop bar with floor-to-ceiling windows in the heart of Stratford.

The ongoing regeneration of Stratford in east London is set to take another step forward with the imminent arrival of a new design hotel.

Bolstering Curio Collection’s ranks

The Gantry, which occupies a prime spot next to Stratford International station, has announced plans to make its long-awaited debut in November 2021. Part of Curio Collection by Hilton’s portfolio, it’ll offer 291 rooms across 17 floors, plus a range of guest amenities.

This towering scheme boasts a silhouette inspired by New York City’s Flatiron Building and showcases a design influenced by industrial east London in the Victorian era and Stratford’s historic role as a train-production hub.

East London’s highest rooftop bar

In terms of F&B, The Gantry will incorporate a ground-floor artisan food market, The Stratford Grocer, and a first-floor all-day restaurant, cocktail bar, lounge and terrace, Union Social. An 18th-floor bar – set to become the highest rooftop bar in east London – will follow in spring 2022, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor terraces.

The property will be managed by Saurabh Kukreja, who has experience of running luxury and lifestyle hotels across the UK, the Philippines and Thailand.
