The UK’s First Arts Hotel Announce Their Third Major Residency

The UK’s First Arts Hotel Announce Their Third Major Residency

Words Tori West

London's favourite affordable creative space launches a Greek pop-up.

After opening the Green Room arts hotel earlier this year, their founder and ‘artrepreneur’ Nick Hartwright has aimed to benefit local communities hit by cuts and provide a solution to London’s housing crisis—you can book a bed from just £18 a night! In addition, Hartwright offers more creative avenues to locals, hosting public art workshops such as life drawing classes, art quizzes and even a cave painting performance. Alongside their diverse art programme, the affordable creative space is now housing ‘I Should Be Souvlaki’, their third restaurant residency as part of the hotel’s three-month incubator programme mentored by The Clove Club’s Johnny Smith.

We're delighted to have Ireland's Roller Derby team staying with us! @teamirelandrd ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Green Rooms founder Nick Hartwright: “We are delighted to welcome I Should Be Souvlaki into the kitchen at Green Rooms. Our past chefs have used the opportunity to launch their own restaurants, not least Asma Khan who following her successful Darjeeling Express supper clubs now has premises off Carnaby St. Green Rooms is where the story starts for many in the arts, but also cuisine and I Should Be Souvlaki are the perfect choice for London’s late summer, and hopefully they’ll keep us warm with cheeky cheer come winter too.”
