Vintry & Mercer

London, United Kingdom

Vintry & Mercer is set in London’s Vintry Ward, among the livery halls, guilds and narrow streets that line the banks of the Thames. This is where past and present intersect, where the long traditions of trade and commerce come to life in the contemporary style of the hotel’s 92 bespoke rooms and suites.

The name was inspired by the historic trading guilds of the area; Vintry, established in 1364, was the centre for London wine merchants, and Mercer, established in 1304, was for noble textile sellers who specialised in fine silks and damasks. The nearby street names — Wine, Honey, Saffron, Garlic(k), Cinnamon — pay tribute to the exotic ingredients that once arrived on the shores of the Thames, filling the city with colour. Today, this historic locale is a destination for the modern traveller. It’s a place where architectural wonders like St Paul’s Cathedral share the cityscape with global powerhouses, from the Bank of England to the Bloomberg Media Group.

In the narrow streets near Vintry & Mercer’s Garlick Hill location, history perseveres. Yet guests are connected to the rest of the capital via the extensive rail and underground network, accessible from Mansion House, Bank and Cannon Street Station. Explore with Vintry & Mercer.

Food & beverage

Vintry Kitchen

An Asian tapas eatery on the ground floor, with a menu pulsating with fresh, bold Asian flavours that offers all-day dining and a ‘Do Not Disturb’ cocktail bar. The wine is tapped straight from the large barrels lining the gantry. The dishes; salty tang of miso and the fiery kick of kimchi, to the freshness of yuzu and gentle heat of wasabi — each dish is served on small plates, perfect for sharing.

Mercer Rooftop Terrace

Located on the top floor taking in the sweep of London’s skyline, from the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral to the glass tip of The Shard. Guests can dine al fresco above the city lights. Inside, the atmosphere is warm and convivial, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening wide to the night’s sky.

DND

A cocktail bar is hidden in the basement where hand-beaded images of Ziegfeld Follies girls line the walls, beckoning guests into this secret bar through a darkened entrance tucked back on Garlick Hill.
