Marconi Lounge Bar @ ME London Hotel

Bar
London

The bar in the lobby of the ME London hotel is full of curves and circles and sticks to shades of creme, grey and dark brown. It features three zones: an oval bar counter, a library with low shelving, candles, magazines and comfy seats and a central lounge with sofas. A fire place is the center piece of the room. It has a 200 kilo heavy marble slice. Every room is lit by chandelliers and light circles. Many of these, as well as many furnishings, were designed by Foster + Partners.

Special Tips

The Marconi Lounge Bar was named after Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of the radio because his former house is located right next to the hotel.
