Whisky hotel to launch in London

London’s Black Rock bar is set to open a whisky hotel later this summer, the first of its kind in the capital.

 

Launched in 2016 by Tom Aske and Tristan Stephenso, Black Rock currently stocks more than 250 whiskies.

Offering a second bar, blending room, and three overnight rooms, the award-winning whisky-focused bar in Hoxton is set to expand over five floors.

The duo’s ethos is to ‘quash stuffy stereotypes about the whisky world’ with the bar featuring a pared back interior and a hip hop soundtrack.

Black Rock Tavern bar opened earlier this month offering booth seating, five draught beers on tap, and a range of highball whisky cocktails.

Inspired by Japanese decor, the interiors feature a reclaimed oak bar, bamboo ceiling panels and graffiti wall art by artist Ryan Gajda.

Opening later this summer, a blending room will offer tastings and give guests the opportunity to create their own single malt whisky.

Black Rock Lodgings will follow with two ‘minimalist but luxurious’ rooms on the second floor and a larger suite on the floor above.

Black Rock is now taking bookings for September onward.
