Tribe London Canary Wharf hotel review

Published

on



Checking into skyscraper hotel Tribe feels like being in Manhattan. Downstairs is surprisingly buzzy even midweek — and not just with office workers. The concept in the ground-floor restaurant is “California meets Canary Wharf”. There’s a large terrace out front for summer months and interiors are— dare I say it — actually cool, and more suited to the latest Shoreditch it-spot rather than a strait-laced finance district. Pink velvet sofas are adorned with tassel pillows and complemented by pastel-green terrazzo tables. Flick through a coffee-table book while you sip a negroni, or pull up a stool at the bar and enjoy the remixed funk and soul.

Overall score 7/10

The view from a room at Tribe Canary Wharf

Rooms and suites

Score 6/10Compact but perfectly formed. There are 320 rooms and three room types — the cheapest with an interior atrium view and the most expensive with a corner view. The smallest is just 14 sq m and the largest 21 sq m — they’re counting on you being out and about exploring the city. The design is pared-back but slick. Rooms come with Chromecast TVs, retro radios and navy blue walls and sage-velvet headboards with polished gold bedside lamps. It’s worth shelling out the extra for an XL corner room with  NYC-style views — shimmering glass-fronted blocks are so close you can almost peer over office workers’ shoulders to read the computer screens. Waking up in bed and drawing back the curtains feels a little voyeuristic but there are thick curtains and light-filtering muslin to hide your modesty.

Food and drink

Score 7/10As you might expect from a California-inspired restaurant called Feels Like June (jury’s out on the name), the food is light and summery. Dishes include small plates of cacio e pepe tater tots, mains of shrimp roll, pork tacos and skirt steak, and five hearty salads — try the shredded kale with pickled golden raisins. There’s a fairly standard buffet breakfast, or you can get a croissant, yoghurt and juice from the grab-and-go bar in the lobby.

What else is there?

Score NAAside from the bar, restaurant and grab-and-go counter there isn’t an awful lot else. The hotel would benefit from a gym.

Where is it?

Score 7/10You may not have considered Canary Wharf when staying in the capital, but hear us out. Things are changing in the east London district and there’s a new neighbourhood in town: Wood Wharf. Tribe is the newest resident to move in alongside the Hawksmoor steakhouse (in a floating pavilion) and will soon be joined by Dishoom and Caravan restaurants. Room rates plummet at weekends when offices are empty — meaning you could score a bargain for your next city break, and with the new Lizzie Line stop you can be at Tottenham Court Road in 13 minutes.

The dwindling case for living in London

Published

By


The recent debate around ‘levelling up’ may be missing something. I would argue that there is another way to consider geographical inequality – and, by this alternative measure, a levelling has been under way for more than 20 years.

I’ve spent three decades working in advertising, so it’s unsurprising that I tend to view economic life through the lens of consumption. By contrast, mainstream economists tend to view disparities through the medium of earnings or wealth. To me, measures of wealth should include not only the quantity of money you have but the breadth of worthwhile options available in choosing how to spend it.

Let’s put it another way. If you live in a boring village, and suddenly a great pub or café opens on the high street, then by my measure you have become richer; by the economist’s measure you have not.

Things that would once have been available in London decades before the provinces now appear everywhereat once 

There was undoubtedly a time when you were richer in London in two ways. You had more money, but you also had a far more exciting range of ways to spend it. Now not so much.

London is a great city but, in terms of consumption quality, it has not improved markedly in the past 20 years. Over the same period, many smaller cities and even towns have advanced rapidly, significantly narrowing the gap. The kind of things that would once have been available in the capital decades before making it to the provinces – like sushi – now appear everywhere at once. Consider Turkish barbers, who seem to have taken over the country in only five years. (I can remember a time when it was enough just to get a haircut without having burning methylated spirits flicked in my ears. Back then I just didn’t know any better.)

This levelling is especially true of anything in the digital world: Amazon gadgets, Netflix films, Asos fashions and PlayStation games hit Aberystwyth the same day they hit Islington. But it also applies to the physical environment, as anyone over 50 can attest. I went to Manchester and Sheffield for the first time in 1989. Compared with London, they were then, let’s be honest, utterly rubbish. Now, when I visit those same cities, I experience mild ‘northern envy’. There are interesting places open everywhere. Northerners have better cars, because they have more money left over after paying for housing. And they are much better-looking, because they can nip home to get changed before going out.

Relatively speaking, London has improved far less dramatically than these provincial cities have. (New York, many aficionados argue, has got worse.) OK, the Tube is better than it used to be. Uber is a handy addition. But some things are awful – the last pleasure of driving in London ended when they put speed cameras on the Westway. Accommodation costs for the young wipe out any salary gains.

CLAIM

By my measure, high property prices won’t just hit Londoners once – they’ll hit them twice. Not only do high rents wipe out what you earn, they also put at risk London’s once unassailable advantage as a great place to spend what money you have left. Creative businesses of any kind require space at a price which allows them to take risks. For a time, London found this space by moving its heartland from west to east. But suppose the people supporting what Douglas McWilliams calls ‘the flat white economy’ flee altogether? In my own experience, Kent suddenly seems weirdly full of fascinating restaurants founded by London exiles. If more of these people leave, the case for staying weakens further.

Londoners always say things like ‘Yes but there’s the theatre’. Let’s face it though – even Shakespeare left London for Stratford in his mid-forties. As he no doubt found, the theatre is all very well, but it’s nothing like being able to park outside your house.
