Ham Yard

A project almost as big as and often confused with the nearby Crossrail is finally opening next month in Soho.

This latest addition to Tim and Kit Kemp’s Firmdale Hotels stable (Charlotte Street to Crosby Street) is set around a tree-filled pedestrian thoroughfare connecting Great Windmill Street to Denman Street, open to the public for the first time since the 1960s and centrepieced with a specially commissioned bronze by Tony Cragg.

We’re talking 90 individually designed bedrooms and suites, 24 residential apartments, 13 specialist stores, restaurant and bar promising plenty of outside space plus a rooftop garden for hotel guests with sweeping views of the capital.

There’s even a 1950s bowling alley imported from Texas, 176-seater theatre and a ‘soholistic spa’ (see what they did there?) with a gym equipped with hypoxic chamber for altitude training. We admit it’s slightly lost on your average punter but at least it’s guaranteed to prepare you for a little perambulation around the roof.
