Housed in a Grade II listed building, Great Scotland Yard in Westminster has been given a £75m makeover and turned into a 153-bedroom luxury lifestyle hotel owned by the Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group and operated by Hyatt.

The seven-storey building was the original headquarters of the Metropolitan Police. The refurb takes inspiration from industrial warehouse architecture – think timber flooring, exposed brick walls and vaulted ceilings.

Gill has enlisted Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons alumnus Alex Harper to run the show as executive chef at the hotel’s five main areas, including the main restaurant, The Yard, which will make a hero of local seasonal produce.

The hotel will also feature a cocktail bar called Forty Elephants serving contemporary twists on the classics, and modern tearoom The Parlour inspired by The Imperial hotel in Delhi

According to Hot Dinners, Great Scotland Yard will also be home to an “illicit drinking club” called Sibin that shines a light on whiskies from around the world. Gill and his team will also make their own gin at the hotel, which boasts its own in-house bakery.
