Ace Hotel London Announces Permanent Closure

“We want to thank — with deepest gratitude and pride — all the ferocious champions of culture.”

Ace Hotel London has officially taken to Instagram to announce with a heavy heart that it will be permanently closing down. As part of the Ace Hotel chain, which was founded in 1999 in Seattle, the brand’s London location first opened back in 2013 in the city’s vibrant arts district of Shoreditch. Since then, it has become a cultural hub beloved by not only locals, but also visitors from all across the world. Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, Ace Hotel London had temporarily closed both the hotel and restaurant prior to this announcement. Although it remains to be seen what the hotel’s future holds for its British patrons, there is no doubt that its presence will be sorely missed.

You can read the hotel’s full announcement below:

We’re heartbroken to announce that our longtime home on High Street will no longer continue as Ace Hotel London Shoreditch. As our first hotel outside the US, it was built as an open satellite for the extraordinary energy ignited by the city itself. We fell in love with that energy, and we’re excited to build a new home in London in the hopeful, renewed future.

We want to thank — with deepest gratitude and pride — all the ferocious champions of culture, the salty legends on the dance floor, the lone early risers finding dawn on the Rooftop. The dream team, fellow travelers and our steadfast neighbors for embracing Ace and making it your own. In the words of David Bowie, “It was rugged, it was naive, it was heaven.” (That quote is written on the walls of Ace London, in perpetuity.)

London, you’re a dream. We’re celebrating every incandescent second and we can’t wait to open our doors in your city again. We’ll see you soon.
