Establishing itself as the Covent Garden of the South Bank, the new hospitality offering at One Tower Bridge will complement the highly anticipated arrival of Sir Nicholas Hytner’s and Nick Starr’s 900 seat Bridge Theatre, which is due to open this autumn, cementing the development as a world-class fine dining and leisure destination.

One Tower Bridge already benefits from millions of visitors which are drawn to the surrounding tourist attractions and Potter’s Field Park as well as the premium office district of More London.

In addition to the offering at One Tower Bridge, five-star boutique hotel LaLiT London, located next door to the scheme, is home to the award-winning Pan Indian restaurant Baluchi, serving a contemporary take on classic multi-regional Indian dishes. The hotel opens to guests this month (February.)
