This week I had the pleasure of visiting London’s newest treasure, Old Sessions House; a stunning new venue on the edge of Clerkenwell Green, just a stones throw from Farringdon train station.
Founded by Sharan Pasricha, Ennismore is a global hospitality company and the curator of unique properties and experiences. Based in London, the group is part developer, part operator and part in-house creative studio.
Ennismore began their story with The Hoxton, Shoreditch, in 2012. It disrupted the hotel model with its open house ethos, celebrating the diversity and originality of the local neighbourhoods. Since then, Ennismore’s portfolio has grown to include Hoxton properties in London, Amsterdam and Paris, the Scottish landmark Gleneagles and several stand-alone, well-regarded restaurants in London. They’re far from done: the Hoxton continues to grow globally, with three new properties opening in the US this year alone, where they’ll be introducing a new brand that will re-imagine the budget hotel model and have many other new concepts and ideas in the works. It’s safe to say their ambition is to create experiences that inspire discovery.
Ennismore Sessions House is the perfect representation of the unique properties and experiences Ennismore stands for, all created by their own designers, architects and developers.
Although their spacious rooms have the warm comfortable feel of an historic building, they are fitted with all the mod-cons including 65” flat screens which are hidden in each room, state-of-the-art video conferencing, super speedy Wi-Fi, printing you can rely on, Sonos sound systems, stationery you are going to want to steal, and a fridge filled with kombucha to cold-pressed juices.
The venue is very versatile. Although a few of the rooms can only be booked either boardroom style or as a dinner event room, there are other spaces such as Go Big (below) which comes as a blank canvas with amazing potential do with it whatever you would like.
Or why not give your guests a real treat and book them an evening event in the cells!
This venue really is amazing if you are looking for something in a great location which is unique and high-end then look no further.
