Launching in Stratford on 11th November 2021, The Gantry is a new design led hotel in East London featuring 291 rooms, and a collection of food and drink destinations to the area.

There will be an artisanal food market from The Stratford Grocer & Co. with integrated café on the ground floor, a dedicated bar, an all-day restaurant and an 18th floor sky bar with panoramic views across the city.

Taking over the 1st Floor, the hotel’s main dining spot will be Union Social. Flanked on one side with a cocktail bar and open kitchen and on the other with floor to ceiling windows and a huge wraparound terrace, the venue combines the ever- changing landscape of Stratford with an industrial-influenced interior.

The food offering at Union Social is a relaxed all-day menu with a global edge, reflective of London’s dynamic food scene and international population.

Coupe at Union Social will offer an ever-changing menu of effervescent specialities, from championing English sparkling wine to introducing the newest Hard Seltzers. Guests will be able to choose from some of the UK’s
finest fizz from estates such as Gusbourne and Rathfinny, as well as enjoying Champagne, Prosecco, and a concise list of sparkling cocktails and spritzes, curated by Walter Pintus.

The Gantry hotel sits above The Stratford Grocer & Co.’s bustling food market, deli and coffee shop on the ground floor set to open fully by mid-January.

Hailing from Sicily, Executive Chef Salvatore Coco, has travelled extensively and his menus reflect this, featuring flavours from all around the world, while elevating local produce from the Southeast of England.

Small plates include Genovese Focaccia, Bottega’s cured cuts with fresh cheese and prawn croquettes with aioli while larger plates range from tarragon risotto with roasted autumnal vegetables, sesame glazed sea trout with white miso tamari-mirin infused ginger broth and Greek lamb meatballs, tzatziki, pickled red onion with pine nuts.

A menu of healthy salads packed full of grains are good for guests looking for a quick lunch or mid-afternoon snack, and as well as for digital nomads working away.

The drinks offering at Union Social has been created by Walter Pintus, an award-winning mixologist who has been involved in some of London’s finest institutions from The Ritz and The Connaught to The Mandrake and most recently The Conduit.

Literally setting the bar high for al fresco partying in 2022, The Gantry will welcome the highest rooftop bar in East London when it opens its 18th floor in Spring next year. With floor to ceiling windows, the sky bar will form the cocktail epicentre of The Gantry
