Boundary is the epitome of East London. It occupies a converted Victorian warehouse in the heart of Shoreditch, combining great food with touches of eccentric design and a stellar location.
Upon arrival you’ll find Albion on the ground level, an all-day café, bar and grocery serving modern British classics (think beans on toast for breakfast and artisanal sausages and mash for lunch), with restaurant Wilder taking up the basement. On weekends, you’ll likely see a queue lining the street too, with groups awaiting entry to the rooftop bar. Open all year round, the bar offers incredible views across the city in a relaxed atmosphere—grab a beer and some food with friends in summer and make use of the glass extension, blankets and heaters on colder nights.
Away from the public spaces are 12 rooms and 5 suites, giving the hotel a boutique and intimate feel in the bustling capital. For fans of design, the Boundary offers something at every turn. The corridors are art-filled, the rooms—each one unique—are inspired by a designer or design movement of the 20th century. Inspiration comes from Bauhaus, Young British, Le Corbusier and everything in between. As you explore the property it’s clear no detail has been overlooked—from the Eames chairs, right down to the Aesop amenities in the bathrooms.
Outside the four walls of Boundary London is everything you need, right on your doorstep. For coffee, there’s the nearby Allpress Espresso and for dinner there’s Dishoom, serving queue-worthy Indian street food. Make time for the pop-up stores at the various shipping containers that make up BOXPARK, and spot the green-bricked exterior of Labour and Wait for a mix of functional homewares and workwear-inspired pieces that only East London could provide.
