First Look Inside London's Newest Hotel Hotspot, L'oscar
A former church in Holborn has been converted into a luxurious five-star hotel designed by Parisian décorateur Jacques Garcia, and we wish we could get on the guest list.
Here at LIV we are always on the look out for new and beautiful interior design inspiration, and the hotel l'Oscar is at the top of our list.
The former 20th Century baptist church is now a dark and sultry hotel that caters to the fashionable elite - Garcia likes the idea of "turning a religious place into a glamorous place, a place to party".
Because of the property's listed status, many of the original fixtures have been retained and integrated into the overall design, the result is 39 unique bedrooms swathed in rich velvets and silks.
L'oscar is a place to worship excess: peacock blue walls, leather and velvet walls, lalique butterfly taps on marble counters in the men's bathrooms and even it's own signature scent by Roja Dove permeating the air.
The 1903 Octagonal chapel is now the Baptist Grill Restaurant - with seating for 44 diners - and is run under the guidance of Michelin star Chef Tony Fleming. The hotel claims Baptist will "bring lightness and creativity to the traditional grill, with a classic table-side Gueridon service that promises to bring a sense of theatre" to the dining room.
In a departure from the hipster style that characterises east London, L'oscar captures the decadence of it's namesake Oscar Wilde and the distinct style of it's designer to create an unashamedly decadent and elegant space you can't help but fall in love with.
