The Curtain hotel and Marcus Samuelsson restaurant to open on 26 May

The Curtain, the new 120-bedroom hotel in Shoreditch, London - from New York operator Michael Achenbaum - has confirmed it will open on 26 May.

Located on Curtain Road, the hotel will feature the Red Rooster restaurant operated by US-based chef Marcus Samuelsson, members' club, the Lido roof- top brasserie and Moroccan-style pool, ballroom for up to 200 at a sit-down dinner, screening room, wellness centre and gym.

The interiors, created by Duncan Miller Ullman, have been designed in "a rustic-industrial style" with bespoke artwork by 1970's music photographer Mick Rock. Rooms rates will start at £240 per night.

The menu from Ethiopian-born, Swedish-raised Samuelsson will feature American comfort food, with live funk, soul and jazz music being played in Red Rooster six days a week. Dishes will include cornbread with honey butter and devilled eggs with sea urchin mayo and candied bacon; Uncle T's herring - matjes, brown butter, horseradish, fermented rice, cured egg yolk, pickled turnips; and Aunt Maybel's dumplings - lamb neck, olives, tomato, gnocchi.

Samuelsson will also operate Roosteria, an all-day taqueria serving a Mexican-inspired breakfast menu, tacos and margaritas.

The members' club will be open from 7am to 2am daily. It will feature LP, a live-performance space with resident DJ Amazonica (aka Victoria ‘Harry' Harrison); Billy's bar; and the Imperial, a relaxed eating and drinking space. A co-working space will open in the autumn.

Achenbaum is the founder of the Gansevoort Hotel Group, which he launched in 2004 with the opening of Gansevoort Meatpacking. He has since gone on to open a second hotel in New York, alongside two Caribbean properties in Turk & Caicos and Dominican Republic.
