The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen

A new, 92-cover, 186 sq m bar, plus a 116-cover, 207 sq m restaurant, under the direction of chef-restaurateur Des McDonald, with a grill-brasserie feel, designed to offer maximum adaptability in order to attract day and night-time visitors with the full impact of a destination space.

Our design approach was to be highly respectful to the building’s original fabric, as well as to the late Victorian insertions, restoring grandeur and creating an environment that instantly feels long-established.

This project won the Best Restaurant or Bar in  Hotel category at the 2016 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards and won the silver award for Hospitality Interior Design at the 2016 London Design Awards.
