Mondrian London at Sea Containers is not just another luxury hotel in the British Metropolis. It has been created at the iconic Sea Containers House, a former office block building.
The hotel, located between the Oxo Tower and Blackfriars Bridge, has 359 guestrooms and suites. Guests will immediately be drawn to the giant, copper clad wall inspired by the hull of a ship, running from outside the building, through to the lobby and on to the river side of the hotel. Experience underwater tranquility and specialized treatments at aqua Bathhouse & Spa, taste delicious food made with local ingredients at Sea Containers restaurant, where outdoor seating along the river walk is also available, and sample innovative cocktails from Mr Lyan at Dandelyan with its iconic green marble bar and dramatic views of the Thames.
The most glamorous among its spaces is the rooftop bar, Rumpus Room, with its glass box structure and outdoor terrace, featuring panoramic views over London. Uniquely reflecting the urban feel of the Southbank neighborhood, Mondrian London is within walking distance from world-famous landmarks, such as Tate Modern, Royal Festival Hall, the National and Globe theatres, as well as Borough Market and the London Eye.
Sea Containers restaurant, inspired by the golden age of transatlantic travel and the bounty of local fresh produce, combines the best of England and America, creating a restaurant that is refined in its offering, yet youthful and casual in its experience. Dandelyan Bar is a journey of discovery where new tastes and unexpected combinations can be experienced and enjoyed in an interior designed by Tom Dixon. The Den lounge, situated between Sea Containers Restaurant and Dandelyan Bar, is the perfect place to sip a cup of tea, enjoy a game of backgammon or share a bottle of wine with friends. Rumpus Room is the rooftop bar & lounge at Mondrian London inspired the bohemian lifestyle of the 1920s socialites the Bright Young Things. One of the most extraordinary cults of youth and frivolity in history, the Bright Young Things were a voracious pleasure-seeking band of bohemian party-givers and blue-blooded socialites who romped through the newspaper columns in 1920s London. Rumpus Room brings back this era, a time when a party was more than a party, it was a lifestyle, an experience, a flash in time, that was gone before you knew it happened.
Besides the panoramic view to the river, Mondrian London has another unique feature to offer, a renowned 56-seat cinema on the studio level. Working with Curzon, Mondrian London screens a range of new releases, classic matinées and family favorites in a luxury cinema from Friday evenings through Sunday, completed with state-of-the-art projection and sound systems.
Designer Tom Dixon said about this project: “Our proposal was really about trying to find the best of America and the best of Britain and applying them in one space. The more we developed that narrative, the more fun we had, and it justified the idea of an American hotel in London. Our challenge was to find a way of giving it a broad appeal while also creating a boutique hotel”.

With Gratitude, T.
