Our story

A collaboration of the like-minded

The Gantry is a multifaceted urban resort and hotel offering a truly integrated eating, drinking, socialising and entertaining experience under one roof. It’s the ideal destination for Londoners and international visitors alike who share our passion for the exceptional and the unexpected. And we’re constantly looking for more creative ways to do things. Which is why we actively collaborate with experts in the food and drink industry, local artists and designers, and also with our world-class hospitality partners, the Hilton Curio collection.

Home is where it happens

Situated in Stratford, one of East London’s fastest growing creative and cultural communities, and just 7 minutes from Kings Cross, The Gantry is a contemporary urban haven for local artists, artisans and aficionados of food, drink and design. Throughout this remarkable building, from the ground-floor grocer, to the first-floor restaurant and all-day lounge, to the 291-room designer hotel, to the rooftop bar and terrace, you’ll also find artworks curated by the Jealous Gallery in Shoreditch.

You’re in Safe Hands

We’re super excited to have Saurabh Kukreja onboard as the General Manager of our hotel. Saurabh is a well-travelled and award-winning hotelier with over 20 years of international experience. He’s worked at some of the world’s best-known luxury hotels in France, Thailand, the Philippines and the UK, and he’s also earned several prestigious industry accolades along the way. But, most important of all, there’s no better person to take care of you and to ensure that your stay with us is as memorable as it is restful.

A shared artistic vision with Jealous Gallery

From humble beginnings in 2008, Jealous Gallery and Print Studio has expanded to two gallery spaces, including a 6,000-foot studio across three floors in their Shoreditch space. Jealous’ work can be found in many respected galleries and institutions, including Tate Modern, The Saatchi Gallery, The Imperial War Museum and The Victoria and Albert Museum, to name just a few. Their collaborative spirit is a perfect match with ours and we’re delighted to be able to showcase their inspiring work throughout our premises.
