London’s latest high-end hotel, L’oscar, opens this month in Holborn – with a Zummo Z40 juicer ready and waiting behind the scenes.
The luxurious boutique hotel has been beautifully renovated, its fin de siècle gorgeousness created by designer Jacques Garcia. As you’d expect from an establishment named after the famous Wilde, interiors are opulent and decadent, with both elegant sweeping spaces and intriguing, dimly-lit corners…
The building’s background couldn’t be more different from its latest incarnation. The Grade II listed former Baptist church was a hostel then part of the Crossrail project before being purchased by L’oscar International Hotels. With just 39 guest rooms, the hotel will have an exclusive and intimate feel, and of course, there’s that excellent Bloomsbury location.
The restaurant, Baptist Grill, is in an octagonal former chapel. The Chef is Tony Fleming from Michelin-starred restaurant the Angler, who promises to bring “lightness and creativity to the traditional grill.” The restaurant will also introduce the classic table-side Gueridon service for a truly theatrical dining experience in the West End.
As well as the Grill, the hotel is home to Café L’oscar, which offers drinks and bistro-style dining in a Parisian café atmosphere. This will be the place to come for a delicious breakfast – enjoyed with a glass of freshly-squeezed juice.
And of course, it will be serving cocktails…! Our Zummo Z40 juicer is the perfect machine for this sophisticated establishment. Squeezing lemons, limes, grapefruits and pomegranates as well as oranges, the juicer provides a delectable base for so many of the best-loved cocktails. We have had a sneaky peak at the forthcoming cocktail menu, and L’oscar’s team has created a mix of classic favourites and brand-new blends (it’s always best to offer this balance of old and new, we find).
The luxurious interiors of the new hotel provide the perfect environment to enjoy a decadent drink. We’re not sure what the Baptist ministers would say, but we hope that Mr Wilde would approve!
