Throughout the month of September The Halkin will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with a unique series of events to underline the ‘Home Away From Home’ theme that has characterised this intimate London hotel in exclusive Belgravia.
ART PUBLISHER ASSOULINE
Art publisher ASSOULINE will be creating an immersive pop-up ‘Culture Lounge’ which takes over the hotel bar to showcase its iconic coffee-table books for guests and others to browse in this library-style environment.
“We are a publishing house obsessive about luxury,” says Prosper Assouline, the company’s founder: “This is our first London pop-up Culture Lounge and it is significant that we have chosen to work with a hotel that helped set a benchmark of luxury for the capital”-
