Vintry & Mercer is nestled at the heart of the City, among the livery halls, guilds and narrow streets that line the banks of the Thames. This is where past and present intersect, where the long traditions of trade and commerce come to life in the contemporary style of the 92 bespoke rooms and suites.
Our inspiration comes from the historic trading guilds of the area. Vintry was the centre for London wine merchants; Mercer was for noble textile sellers who specialised in fine silks and damasks. In the narrow streets near our hotel, this history perseveres. Yet the locale is now a destination for the modern traveller. It’s a place where architectural wonders share the cityscape with global powerhouses, alive with the bustle of commerce and conversation that reflect our first-class location at the centre of a turning world.
In one sweep, the view from Mercer Roof Terrace takes in London’s skyline, from the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral to the glass tip of The Shard. The menu celebrates the best of British cooking, using sustainably sourced meat and fish from the British Isles.
Vintry Izakaya is an Asian tapas eatery on the ground floor, with a menu that pulses with fresh, bold flavours from morning to night. Wine takes centre stage, tapped straight from large barrels that line the gantry.
DND is our basement bar, serving authentic vintage cocktails tucked away in the basement. The mood is one of retro glamour and sophistication, reflecting the notorious prohibition venues that crept into the back streets of 1920’s New York.
Vintry & Mercer sits at the heart of London’s Vintry ward. This historic destination – once a centre for London wine merchants – is now a place for the modern traveller; someone who wants the luxury of today laced with a taste of the past.
