An unexpected hotel, packed with hidden treasures

South Place Hotel is restaurateur D&D’s first hotel property. Designed by Conran, the interiors have a discernible focus on art and contemporary design – offering business travellers and design-conscious guests a distinctive hotel experience in the capital.

Located between Moorgate and Liverpool Street, South Place Hotel derives its inspiration from London’s cultural diversity. The design combines the atmosphere of D&D London’s restaurants, Conran-designed interiors and specially- commissioned work by contemporary London artists.

The hotel’s 80 bedrooms have a stylish, individual aesthetic, and feature Josephine Home bed linen, cashmere-wrapped mattresses and Oranges and Lemons amenities by perfumer, James Heeley. Hand-selected artworks from Hoxton Art Gallery and Jealous Gallery adorn the rooms, alongside a welcome box by Studio Conran with a bespoke, hand-drawn map by Emily Chappell, Bang & Olufsen 40in Beovision 10 televisions as standard and hand-cast resin pieces of British printed ephemera by AMD Interior Architects.

A strong focus on art and design is evident throughout the hotel. Damien Florébert Cuypers’ two minute illustrations adorn the walls of 3 South Place, while the lift lobby features a screen wall showcasing digital art.

The hidden secret garden atrium bar on the first floor is adorned with a bespoke sculpture by Grace and Webb. The five private rooms on the same floor take their names from fictional spies in a nod to a 1920s spy ring in Moorgate, and can be transformed into meeting rooms or dining rooms depending on the occasion. Alongside them, Le Chiffre, the resident’s games room, has the ambiance of a private members club thanks to its roaring fire, well-stocked library and records.

Step onto the first floor for our very own art gallery. Exhibiting a different art throughout the year there is always something new to see and experience.

From Monday 17th May – 31st August, South Place will feature the iconic work of Artist, Sara Pope who is showing a solo exhibition of her work. Sara’s work has featured in the hotel bedrooms since their opening, so it only seemed right to invite her to do a full exhibition of her most recent artwork – from her first digital piece which features on the ground floor, up to the first floor for a full exhibition of 12 of her pieces.

Known for her bold, glossy paintings of voluptuous lips, the exhibition will showcase a range of pieces that explore several themes. Additionally, as part of the exhibition, Sara will be presenting her first ever digital artwork, ‘SUPERNOVA’, which was created with the fantastic innovation agency Tiger Heart.

Sara uses the mouth as a vehicle to explore the notions of communicationexpressionbeauty, and the rise of image perfectionism through her artworks. The mouth is central to communication, whether through speech or expressive movement, and sensual communication, through kissing and touch. Consequently, the mouth is also inextricably linked to beauty and attraction.
