Soho House & Co’s latest hotel, Redchurch Townhouse, will open next month featuring the company’s casual Italian restaurant brand Cecconi.
The company behind private members’ clubs, including Soho House and Shoreditch House, as well as Dean Street Townhouse and Kettner’s Townhouse, has said the new site on London’s Whitby Street will incorporate Cecconi’s restaurant and 37 bedrooms.
The opening will mark the first move to east London for Soho House & Co’s Cecconi restaurant group, which originated in Mayfair in 1978 under Enzo Cecconi – the youngest ever general manager of Cipriani in Venice.
The restaurant will serve pasta, seafood and cicchetti, including Cecconi favourites such as lobster spaghetti and veal Milanese, as well as pizza from a wood-fired oven.
The walls of the Italian restaurant will display artworks by 40 artists under the age of 40, most of who live in east London.
Rooms, ranging in size from Tiny to Large, have been individually designed in 1950s to 1970s styles. Each room has a retro chandelier, a living area with mid-century armchairs and desks as well as specially designed furniture by Soho House Design.
