The Hoxton Southwark opens its doors – the brand’s third hotel in London

The Hoxton, Southwark has now opened its doors on Blackfriars Road with 192 rooms, welcoming communal spaces and a seafood rooftop restaurant, Seabird, with incredible views of the city.

Seabird at The Hoxton, Southwark

The eighth property in series, The Hoxton Southwark sees the brand back on familiar ground with its third hotel in its birthplace of London. The Hoxton first opened its doors in Shoreditch in 2006, followed by Holborn in 2012, and has since been rolled out globally, with creatively designed open-house hotels in neighbourhoods around the world including Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Portland, and Chicago. The Hoxton, Downtown LA will follow later this year.    

Perched on the 14th floor of the hotel, rooftop restaurant Seabird is a destination in itself, playing host to London’s longest oyster list, an impressive marble raw bar, and excellent city views. To bring Seabird to life, The Hoxton partnered with Premiere Enterprises, founded by James Beard Awardwinning duo Joshua Boissy and Krystof Zizka of Brooklyn hotspot Maison PremiereSeafood takes centre stage (quite literally) with an impressive raw bar piled high to steal the show, and the menu draws inspiration from Portuguese and Spanish cuisines.  

Ennismore Design Studio is responsible for the interiors throughout the hotel, with the open-plan communal spaces drawing inspiration from Southwark’s eclectic, industrial past. Tiling patterns and textiles echo the shapes seen in the architecture in the neighbourhood, with additional quirky theatrical touches reflecting the prominence of Southwark’s local theatres. A mix of antique and bespoke furniture found throughout the hotel has been sourced from British makers and super-sized greenery on the ground floor makes an impact on arrival. Overall, an excellent addition to the Hoxton portfolio.
