Welcome to Lido and the Green Room at The Curtain in Shoreditch, London

The Curtain - the first European venture from New York hotelier Michael Achenbaum

Located on Curtain Road in Shoreditch, The Curtain features 120 luxurious guestrooms and suites, a restaurant from chef Marcus Samuelsson, a rooftop pool & brasserie (LIDO), and a dynamic Members Club.

The Curtain brings with it a breath of creative energy to the area. The members club provides a place to network, play, learn and explore, with all the tools in place for both professional encounters and for times when work needs to take a back seat. For hotel guests The Curtain, with its sleek interiors and bursts of Shoreditch character, offers the best of luxury hospitality infused with the energy of creative east London.

The Hotel

Guestrooms at The Curtain range from Courtyard and City rooms through to the larger Junior Loft or Junior Loft Terrace suites. There are also four Shoreditch Suites and one deluxe suite, The Curtain Suite. Interiors are by international hospitality firm Duncan Miller Ullman; each room is designed in a rustic-industrial style with bespoke artwork by music photography legend of the 1970’s, Mick Rock and each room is equipped with a state-of-the-art rain & steam shower. For The Curtain attention to detail is paramount, and the offerings of the rooms’ mini-bars have been selected to be as original as the hotel itself. Rooms rates start from £240 per night (inc tax).

In May 2018, The Curtain are launching a brand-new hotel cocktail bar called GREEN ROOM.

Heading up Green Room will be The Curtain’s Director of Beverage, Jenny Willing, who previously opened Mondrian London’s globally-acclaimed Dandelyan Bar. Based in East London herself, the cocktail menu will reflect Jenny’s experiences of the area, using local products such as East London Liquor Company Rum, Land Chocolate, London Turmeric Honey and E5 Bakery sourdough as cocktail ingredients. The drinks themselves are inspired by her favourite places in the area, with the delicate, floral MaBelle inspired by a walled rose garden in Victoria Park and Rough Trade, a vibrant tiki-style drink with a Bangladeshi twist inspired by Brick Lane.


The rooftop brasserie and Moroccan-style pool at The Curtain is a plant-filled haven for hotel guests and club members. The LIDO menu features light and seasonal dishes, such as flatbreads and fresh seafood platters. There is also be an extensive wine list, with many available by the glass, as well as an offering of refreshing spritz cocktails. Guests can lounge on sunbeds with the skyline of Shoreditch as a backdrop during the summer months, while the retractable glass roof means that guests can make use of the heated pool throughout the year.
