NoMad London

Covent Garden, London

NoMad London has taken up residence inside the historic Grade-II listed building that was famously The Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station

NoMad London opened on the site in 2021 after a refurbishment programme was conducted between 2018 and 2020, that resulted in the space being dedicated to a hotel, restaurant, museum and bar.

For those that want an experience with some history this hotel has it all. It has reportedly housed many defendants in its time from Oscar Wilde, the Kray twins, suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, to Dame Vivienne Westwood.

And its design is equally nostalgic. A collaboration with New York-based interior design studio Roman and Williams, transformed the 19th Century building by drawing inspiration from its history and location in Covent Garden, as well as exploring the artistic and cultural connection between London and New York.

The hotel has 91 luxury rooms and Three suites - Royal Opera Suite, Magistrates' Suite and Parlour suite.  It is the perfect base to explore the delights of central London with Covent Garden on its doorstep and the Theatre Royal Drury Lane just a stones throwaway.

There are four separate venues to enjoy food and drinks inside the luxury venue. The NoMad Restaurant, set inside a lushly landscaped atrium with a soaring glass ceiling, offers an eclectic menu from Chef Michael Yates. He joined as executive chef in Spring 2023 with a background in working in Michelin starred restaurants and was most recently working in Antwerp where he ran his own 24-seat restaurant.

If you fancy something more casual, Side Hustle is NoMad’s bar and restaurant, located in the former Bow Street Police Station. The Library offers a unique space for hotel residents and their guests to relax while Common Decency is NoMad’s subterranean bar serving cocktails, snacks and fun music.

For those that want a spa experience and getaway the hotel has partnered with wellness providers Ricari Studios and Katie England to offer a range of indulgent treatments.

NoMad London is operated by Sydell Group, which also operates the US-based NoMad in Las Vegas.
