The Buxton | A Beautiful Brick Lane Pub & Hotel With A Rooftop
“With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.”
― Thomas Fowell Buxton
Yes, from a garden variety motivational speaker, those words might not carry much weight. But from a man who helped abolish slavery throughout the British Empire, started the movement that would eventually ban capital punishment, and founded the RSPCA, they make you take a little more notice.
Thomas Buxton was exactly such a man, and his dedication to making the world a better place didn’t just end in Parliament. Because he also owned a brewery. And not just any brewery, but the fabled Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. It’s here, on Brick Lane that the owners of excellent nearby pub The Culpeper (literally a stone’s throw away) have decided to open their next venue, and it’s looking fantastic.
The space will be part-pub, part-hotel all made from Portland Stone (the same stuff that St. Paul’s, Buckingham Palace, and the UN Building are all made from). On the ground floor it’ll have a standalone bar & kitchen space surrounded by a marble bar, with wood & brass details throughout. Upstairs, there’ll be a hot pink corridor leading to 15 individually designed rooms.
And above that? There’ll be a rooftop.
With a Swedish hot tub.
And an honesty bar.
NOTE: The Buxton is due top open this spring. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can check out their website right HERE.
