We first wrote about New York's NoMad hotel coming to London almost a few years ago - but now it's actually happening.
We've now got confirmation that they're taking over the Bow Street Magistrates Court in Covent Garden, a 19th Century listed building that should look pretty damned impressive once kitted out.
If you're unfamiliar with the original hotel, one of the best reasons to visit the NoMad in New York is the restaurant by Daniel Humm. His other restaurant, 11 Madison Park, is a former Best Restaurant In The World.
He was confirmed to be in charge of the food at the London NoMad, together with restaurateur Will Guidara in what was to be their second London restaurant. However, they parted ways after the announcement, so we're still waiting for confirmation on the food. The latest we've heard is that the restaurant will be run by New York's Eleven Madison Park-alum Executive Chef Ian Coogan and Leo Robitschek.
New to London will be a NoMad lounge and the original courtroom will be used for private-hire events.
The hotel's umbrella company, the Sydell Group has opened a hotel in London before. They had pretty great success in partnering with Soho House for The Ned - so hopefully this will be just as big a draw
