The hotel is superbly located within walking distance of key visitor attractions including the Tate Modern, The Shard and the ever popular foodie destination of Borough Market.

The stunning Bankside ballroom, accommodates over 700 people with its own private entrance, an imposing 6-metre high ceiling, dramatic chandeliers, balcony and sweeping marble staircase, this is a spectacular venue for any event.
Kelly Eichholtz ? Director of Business Development from Hilton London Bankside says: ?We are so excited to be opening the newest luxury full-service Hilton property within London. Representing an exciting new generation of Hilton hotels featuring contemporary, design inspired interior and high-end, locally inspired food and drink offerings in the most vibrant area of Bankside.
The regeneration of Bankside presents such an extensive offering from both a leisure and business traveller perspective. Our new hotel places guests near some of London?s most famous attractions and close to the capital?s Financial District. Hilton London Bankside will now be the market leader offering a much needed combination of high end service and value proposition to the Bankside area and London.?
Executive Chef Paul Bates, formerly of The Beaumont and Intercontinental Park Lane, is at the helm of the food and beverage outlets, OXBO Bankside restaurant and The Distillery bar.
OXBO Bankside offers all day dining with display kitchen enhancing the personalized guest experience and adding to the theatre of the restaurant. The food itself will champion fresh British ingredients sourced locally and draw on the abundance of produce available at Borough Market for inspiration.
The Distillery mirrors the energy of the area, being designed as a buzzy meeting point for the local commercial area and residents of Bankside, focusing on artisan gins and locally crafted beers. Located on the site of Stevenson & Howell?s Standard Works, a renowned essence factory in 1800s, The Distillery pays homage to its heritage, serving a range of signature cocktails incorporating homemade aromatics, infusions and bitters.
