LONDON - Now open in London is the new Assouline Culture Lounge at The Halkin. The hotel’s lobby bar has been transformed to showcase some of Assouline’s most iconic coffee table books, including collections in fashion, art, photography, travel, architecture, and design.

The Halkin has long been one of the city’s best-kept secrets, nestled among the stately Georgian facades of Belgravia, minutes from Harrods. Passersby now have the perfect place to stop for a midday or evening break. While enjoying signature cocktails and other light bites, they can peruse the beautiful books and other antiquities on display. To bring the literature to life, the lounge will host a series of events with selected authors later this year.

This exciting addition comes as the hotel celebrates its 20th anniversary. It opened its doors in September 1991 as one of the first design-led boutique hotels in London and the first property from COMO Hotels and Resorts. Since then, it has set the benchmark for small, luxury hotels with impeccable attention to detail and world-class service.

Located in ultra-chic, residential Belgravia in the heart of London - and moments from the glamorous shopping of Mayfair and Knightsbridge - the hotel has its own award-winning Thai restaurant, nahm , under the direction of Chef David Thompson.
