L’oscar, an exclusive new 39-bedroom luxury hotel, has been fantastically-restored and re-imagined in all its Baroque glory and is set to open next month in London.
Once left derelict, this 110-year-old treasure has been subject to a no-expense-spared refurbishment by highly-esteemed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia.
Hidden in the heart of one of London’s trendiest boroughs, on Southampton Row, it boasts a spectacular octagonal chapel alongside ornate ceilings, carved fireplaces, oak panelling and magnificently proportioned rooms, all cleverly complemented by a mischievously-talented redesign that adds elegant and unexpected new twists.
Every room is delightfully individual, with extravagant styling, high ceilings, large windows and a wealth of original detail, all personalised and curated by Garcia’s high-quality design.
The staff, overseen by general manager, Michael Voigt, promise to deliver the highest levels of service, while the restaurant and bar, The Baptist, run by executive chef Tony Fleming, takes pride of place in the Grade II building’s breath-taking and architecturally-significant chapel.
The Baptist restaurant is situated at the heart of L’oscar.
Open to the public via a side entrance to L’oscar Hotel, it promises a visual and gastronomic temptation.
