The Residential Suite

 

 

THE RESIDENTIAL SUITE reigns supreme for romantic getaways, city breaks, business trips, and cultural cruising of the London art, music & fashion scenes. Enjoy fast easy access to Shoreditch, Soho, Camden Town, the City, Canary Wharf, and so much more!

Situated atop The Residence gallery in the heart of historic Victoria Park Village, this 1860 built private suite offers boutique hotel style essentials in your very own adults only exclusive London pad (you will not be sharing with others). Here you can find a culturally rich, fashionable and authentic experience of life as a Londoner beside one of the capital's most popular parks (having recently undergone a £12 million revamp and won the People's Choice Award). Prize winning restaurants, traditional pubs, organic grocers, art galleries, English gardens, row boats, tennis courts, spa, swimming pools, beauty salons and stylish village shops are steps away. Victoria Park Village featured as "London's hidden gem" in the Feb. 2012 issue of Living Etc. Magazine and more recently in the Metro newspaper.

"One appeal of London for many visitors is the promise of a quaint neighbourhood, a place where the vague, romantic notion of the English market village merges with London's bustling energy. The thing is, many parts of London's West that might once have fulfilled such fantasies have become very expensive, mobbed with tourists...
Victoria Park Village, with its inarguable cuteness and many local, small-scale specialty shops, delivers the traditional neighborhood goods."-Alex Robertson Texter, "Round-the-world: Victoria Park Village, London's most perfect retail cluster"

Another favourite is "PAVILION," the park cafe with a stunning panoramic lake view, serving fresh organic full English breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and now locally brewed beer! Don't miss the lunchtime specials at The Lauriston Pub or noodle soup at the lovely Vietnemese with a modern twist restaurant Namo.

INSIDER SECRETS TO DRINKING & DINING

BISTROTEQUE - Just a 10min. walk away, hidden down Wadeson Street, you'll discover one of London's most fashionable venues for dining and cocktails, popular amongst East London's exclusive It-crowd of fashion designers, performers, models, art dealers and beyond. But the main pull is the delicious food and fabulous cocktails with fine service in a buzzing upmarket-but-edgy warehouse atmosphere. The menu is French & British including fish n' chips, mussels, steak tartare, beetroot salad, British cheeses and more. Book a table in advance and arrive early for an espresso martini at the bar!

THE HEMINGWAY - Walk 5min. down Victoria Park Road to reach this classy pub decorated as an old gentlemen's club with an interesting selection of taxidermy and guns mounted on the wall, chesterfields and art deco ornaments. It's worth the visit for the bearded monkey head alone however this is a really great place to have dinner or just hang out for drinks. The menu features a posh selection of pub grub and the glistening copper bar offers a wide selection of spirits!

THE COCK TAVERN - Hop on the 277 bus toward Hackney Central (5min. ride) to savour a pint at this newly refurbished pub with its own micro brewery and impressive selection of independent UK hand-pulled beers and ciders. Atmosphere is casual and laid-back in smart traditional dark wood surround, with a bit of music to keep the energy flowing. Staff are warm and knowledgable about their drinks!

WHAT TO DO FOR THE DAY:

If you want a taste of authentic London away from the tourist traps, why not enjoy a day of visiting trendy markets or discovering the numerous contemporary art galleries dotted around? While Victoria Park VIllage has art and shops to check out right on your door-step, a short jaunt in any direction will lead you to enclaves of galleries such as Vyner Street and Bethnal Green, or hip market areas like Broadway Market, Spitalfields Market, and Colombia Road Flower Market. Also nearby are Historic Roman Road Market and flashy giant Westfield Shopping Centre (the largest in Europe).

Nearby scenic Victoria Park is host to major music summer events and festivals (Field Day, Love Box Festival) showcasing the likes of Grace Jones, Lana Del Ray, Roxy Music and more. For a more peaceful mood take a walk to discover charming canal boats, row boats for hire (just £10.50 during summer), tennis courts, imposing Victorian monuments, Chinese Pagoda and exquisite gardens. All of these attractions listed above are within walking distance.

WHAT TO DO FOR THE NIGHT:

CLUBBING
East London is no stranger to the night. If you're in the mood for dancing all night, take the 277 bus to Dalston Junction. Here Kingsland Road is lined with bangin' clubs all the way from Shoreditch to Stoke Newington. Don't forget your ID and be prepared to queue!

PERFORMANCE ART/ FILM/ MUSIC
AT HOME WITH THE LUDSKIS: Late Saturday nights historic art deco cinema The Rio (on Kingsland Road) opens its doors to a night of performance, film, experimentation, music, and more. Who knows what will happen!

FILM/ THEATRE
Something more civilised? Get down to Hackney Central on the 277 bus to check out film screenings at Hackney Picture House (they also have a bar & restaurant) or a show at the Hackney Empire, an absolutely stunning ornate theatre designed by architectural master Frank Matcham at the turn of the 20th century.

LATE LATE NIGHT
If it's past closing time everywhere else and you still want to keep partying head to the last resort known as The Dolphin pub where Mare Street meets Well Street (15min. walk/ 4 min. bus on 277). This local dive stays open way past your bed time .. 4am at least. It's dodgy, mad, drunken, loud, but quite fun and definitely an East London institution. You never know who will walk in!

TRANSPORT
Easy access to bus (24 hours), train and tube. Minutes from Bethnal Green and Mile End tube stations. Within 20min. of the West End. Central, District, and Hammersmith & City lines.

INSIDER TIPS
The Residence gallery director Ingrid Z and her team will be more than happy to share their insider knowledge of the area and tips on experiencing the most out of East London’s thriving art, culture, music and social scene.
