Pub and hotel operator Fuller’s has invested close to £2m on a “extensive” renovation of its The Chamberlain Hotel on Minories in London.
The renovation, includes a “significant” facelift of the exterior and a full interior refurbishment, a new basement cocktail bar, called ‘The Chambers’ has been developed to provide a “unique social” and drinking experience.
The service will be executed by a team of professional cocktail bartenders, with a focus on creating a “convivial” atmosphere, where customers can “relax, celebrate and enjoy”.
The Chambers will have space for up to 130 people and full-table service provided, and is available for private hire. It can also be transformed into a contemporary meeting or workshop space and has a separate private room, suitable for a board meeting for 12 people.
The Chamberlain refurbishment also includes a co-working space in the ground-floor lounge area which will include a wide selection of food and drink. Meeting rooms are available for hire, which come fully equipped with audio-visual equipment.
Mark Fulton, head of operations at Fuller’s, said: “Our team has worked extremely hard to prepare for this new and exciting venture with The Chamberlain. We wanted to challenge our traditional approach towards hospitality and offer an all-inclusive space which serves great food and innovative cocktails, whilst encouraging visitors to explore the rest of the venue.
“It’s the first time we have ever done something like this before and it’s also a significant investment for us, but we are confident it’s a positive change that reflects the needs of the modern consumer, seeking a fantastic dining and drinking experience.”
