HOTEL & RESTAURANT
Opens May 26 2017
The zeitgeist for hotel-meets-members club-meets-gastro hub-meets-co-working spaces might seem one hyphen too far, but The Curtain, the latest addition to Shoreditch’s hipster golden triangle – a stone’s throw from The Ace and Shoreditch House, hopes to set itself apart with New York style slick execution, courtesy of Gansevoort group hotelier Michael Achenbaum. We’re rather taken by the sound of its Moroccan-style rooftop heated pool and restaurant (with retractable roof for rainy days), Sunday brunch with live Gospel singing at Red Rooster (whose American comfort food specialities include devilled eggs with sea urchin mayo and candied bacon), tacos and margaritas at the relaxed Tienda Roosteria, and programme of cultural events for members – kickstarted by the panel discussion The Making of a Modern Food Business with Alan Yau, Patty and Bun’s Joe Grossman and Grill My Cheese’s Nisha Patel. See you on the sun-lounger after a booming rendition of He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.
