Andaz Liverpool Street's Room With A View Will Give You An Arty Andazm
One of the reasons we’ve always liked London’s Andaz Liverpool Street is that, despite it being a largely business hotel in the City of London, it’s always pushed the envelope with art projects, fashion things, Readers in Residence and so on. Another reason we’ve always liked Andaz Liverpool street is that, despite its business-ness, it’s always given a shout out to its East London roots.
So now we love it even more with the launch of Room With A View: a year-long series of “East London street art rooms” – basically, four rooms hand-painted by East London street artists.
The project starts with The Pearly Room by Chris Price: a black and white riot of pearly kings and queens amongst the spires of Shoreditch.
After Chris Price, it’ll be Patrick Vale on 6 October, on show till July 2015; after that, it’ll be ILoveDust from 3 January to July 2015; and finally, Patrick Morgan will join them from 3 April, again till July. All rooms will be from the Large King category, and will be an interpretation of East London’s past, present or future.
The rooms will cost from £246 on weekends, or £348 weekdays – which, by our calculations is the standard price for a Large King. General rooms this weekend start at £174 for a Queen. Not the pearly kind.
