SEA CONTAINERS

ALL-DAY DINING RESTAURANT SET IN THE TOM DIXON DESIGNED MONDRIAN LONDON.

Inspired by the Golden Age of transatlantic travel and designed under the creative direction of visionary Tom Dixon, by Design Research Studio, Sea Containers at Mondrian London brings the best of American and British cuisine to the Southbank, offering a modern yet casual dining experience in an informal setting alongside the River Thames.

 

 

The copper-clad hull guides you through to the restaurant, which boasts an open-plan kitchen featuring an impressive wood-fired oven. At the centre of the restaurant, there is an iconic 18-seat signature stainless steel bar designed to reflect an American diner, together with a Yellow Submarine which continues the maritime theme of the hotel. Sea Containers also boasts stunning views over the Thames, a riverside terrace for al fresco dining, and a private dining room with an outdoor terrace.

 

 

RUMPUS ROOM

A BAR ON THE TOP FLOOR WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE RIVER THAMES AND THE LONDON SKYLINE

Rumpus Room, which sits on the 12th floor of the Mondrian hotel, offers panoramic views of the River Thames and an unparalleled view across central London and St Paul’s. The skylight feature in the centre of the room facilitates an even stronger connection to the skyline, with light streaming through the space and out on to the terrace, adding a sparkle to the night-time sky. Recently relaunched, the innovative new look, curated by London-based designer Jacu Strauss, previously of Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio, encompasses the transatlantic essence that runs throughout the hotel.

 

 

Taking inspiration from 1920s glamour with splashes of hot pink and peacock blue, the inclusion of foliage amongst floor-to-ceiling windows mimics the heady summers in the Hamptons. The space has been recrafted to be an accessible and casual space, suitable for any occasion. Guests will find their way to the rooftop bar via hot pink neon signage before walking through a hall of mirrors. Strauss has ensured the design is playful and interactive but most of all welcoming for all guests.
