Morgans Hotel Group (MHG) is to revamp its resturants and bars at its London properties.
At the St Martin’s Lane hotel the group has enlisted designer Amy Sacco to introduce Bungalow 8 – a new nightclub which is due to open in 2008.
The restaurant and terrace bar at its Sanderson hotel, which recently came top in Europe in TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Hip Hotel List, is set to be redesigned by designer India Mahdavi for January 2007.
The design changes are being driven by MHG’s new vice-president of design, Mari Balestrazzi.
Tim Miller, MHG’s chief branding officer said: “We are redefining a modern classic by reinvigorating our brands and continuing our tradition of era-defining endeavours that have consistently set the standard for the industry.”
MHG is also looking to expand worldwide, and is currently considering developing properties in the USA in areas including Scottsdale in Arizona, Las Vegas and Miami.
