Situated in the heart of the City, Vintry & Mercer is a new destination hotel between St Paul’s Cathedral and The Shard. Designed by Dexter Moren Associates, the hotel features 92 bespoke rooms and suites, a gym and three meeting rooms. In addition, the hotel has a main restaurant on the ground floor, a rooftop restaurant with amazing views of St Paul’s Cathedral and a speakeasy bar in the basement.
The inspiration for the name comes from the historic trading guilds of the area. Vintry was the centre for London wine merchants; Mercer was for noble textile sellers who specialised in fine silks and damasks. The sumptuous decor taps into this rich history to create bespoke design features. Plush velvet curtains, bespoke fabrics and leather door handles provide luxurious touches. Old traveller maps and antiquarian images of the old worshipful companies decorate the walls. Each element is a nod to the past of this area that lines the Thames.
To complement the contemporary style of the hotel, Shadbolt manufactured and supplied a host of FSC® certified doors. Stile and rail pattern, FD30 doors were provided in crown cut European oak veneer. Matching 35db acoustic performance doors with routered feature grooves were also supplied. Finally, factory primed FD60 doors with feature grooves were provided to be painted on site to match the interior colour scheme.
