NoMad London, Bow Street Magistrates' Court
NoMad London takes residence inside the historic Grade II listed building famously known as The Bow Street Magistrates’ Court. The police station was once home to the Bow Street Runners and both the courthouse and holding cells housed many notable defendants such as Oscar Wilde and the Kray Twins.
A collaboration between Sydell Group, Roman and Williams and EPR Architects, the transformation of the storied 19th century property into the first international outpost for The NoMad Hotel brand draws inspiration from its history and location, as well as exploring the artistic and cultural connection between London and New York.
The hotel is the brand’s most intimate property, housing 91 rooms, a soaring three-storey atrium restaurant and a stunning ballroom events space within the former Magistrates’ Courtroom supported by two private dining rooms and a bar. The reimagined Bow Street Magistrates’ Court is completed by a guests-only library and two further bar venues. In the former police station, a wing of original police cells has been converted into the Bow Street Police Museum.
