A luxury “design hotel” with an artisan food market, restaurant, cocktail bars with open-air terraces and flexible event space is set to open in Stratford.
The Gantry - located in Celebration Avenue, across the road from Stratford International station in the East Village neighbourhood - will be launched on November 11.
The design of the 18-storey building is said to be influenced by industrial Victorian east London and Stratford’s historical role in the city’s train building industry, with its silhouette inspired by New York’s famous Flatiron building.
The ground floor of The Gantry will feature an artisan food market, deli and coffee shop with local produce from Stratford Grocer & Co.
All-day restaurant Union Social will offer “contemporary London cuisine” on the first floor, with a cocktail bar and open kitchen on one side and floor to ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace on the other side.
The Gantry, which has 291 rooms, is also set to open the highest rooftop bar in east London on its 18th floor next spring.
