L’oscar is an exclusive 39-bedroom luxury hotel and a previously-abandoned architectural gem. The former Headquarters of the Baptist Church has now been fantastically-restored and re-imagined in all its Baroque glory. Once left derelict, this 110-year-old treasure has been subject to a no-expense-spared refurbishment by highly-esteemed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, of Hotel Costes fame, creating his first London hotel.
L’oscar boasts a spectacular octagonal chapel alongside ornate ceilings, carved fireplaces, oak panelling and magnificently proportioned rooms, all cleverly complemented by a mischievously-talented redesign that adds elegant and unexpected new twists. Far from its original purpose, L’oscar promises to be a visual and gastronomic temptation
