In the innovation-driven world of business today, creativity is a premium element you can’t afford to go without. As noticeable as it is of a need, nailing down where to get creativity can feel like catching a cloud with a net: how do you foster unconventional thinking? How do you develop the capability to view situations and obstacles from an entirely new perspective?
Travel is a traditional means of discovering new vantage points, and art is certainly a catalyst for unconventional thinking. Why not enjoy both on a business trip? The next time your business takes you to London, shy away from your traditional amenities and opt instead for the ever-vibrant Andaz London Liverpool Street—a temple of originality in thriving East London.

When business isn’t the objective, there are more than enough discoveries worth venturing out for. Prominent historical sites—like the London Bridge or the Tower of London—are walking distance from the hotel. Or, if the journey is more rewarding than the destination, the neighborhood is a perfect place to spend a day wandering: art galleries, designer boutiques, lively markets and outdoor murals are every which way you look.

If you prefer to stay in during your search for inspiration, Andaz London is well-equipped to provide. The hotel itself originally opened in 1884 and is a beautiful redbrick Victorian building designed by the architects of London’s House of Parliament. Equally impressive is the historic Masonic Temple housed within the Andaz London, providing a home to a collection of community events.

And finally, if your inspiration sparks best without structure, the freedom to pop into any of the Street Art rooms is certain to entice. A series of four large king rooms hand-painted by local artists to depict their interpretation of East London’s past, present and future, the Street Art rooms prove to be a welcome respite from the “business-as-usual” that you’ve grown accustomed to from most hotels.
Whether it’s breakfast before a busy day or a late-night snack to indulge a craving, the Andaz London has a bevy of quality dining options for your consideration. Start your day with a hearty breakfast at 1901 Restaurant, a Grade II listed ballroom since repurposed as an eatery. Or, enjoy a weekend brunch at Rake’s, a colorful café by day and chic bar by night. Try treating yourself to authentic Japanese cuisine at Miyako—one of London’s most popular Japanese restaurants.
