This Hotel Bridges London’s Merchant Heritage With It’s Cosmopolitan Present

The Vintry & Mercer hotel sits between the architectural triumphs of Sir Christopher Wren and The Shard in the warren of streets that line the Thames. Just two minutes walk from London’s Cannon Street station and Mansion House tube, this establishment reflects a time when the Vintry Guild wine traders (est. 1363) and Mercer Guild silk importers (est. 1304) dominated the area.

All throughout its 92 rooms, halls and dining spaces, guests will find references to these roots in barrel-aged cocktails to bespoke fabrics and old trading maps. Other finishing touches that enhance this connection include velvet headboards, textile furnishings, leather doorhandles and artwork.

For dining options, opt between the Vintry Kitchen for its Asian palette paired with wines tapped by the glass from the barrels lining the gantry. Or head upstairs to the Mercer Roof Terrace to take in the London skyline and the best of modern British cooking. Wind down at the hotel’s speakeasy-inspired Do Not Disturb bar with a Vintage Sazerac or old-school Manhattan.

You’ll also be pleased to know the hotel is currently offering 25% off on food and drink bills one Saturdays and Sunday till 28 April 2019.
