It’s hard to believe that what was once a car park is now home to the impressive BoTree hotel. One of London's newest luxury hotels in Marylebone, this impressive venue is home to first-class restaurants, bars, rooms and suites, right in the heart of the capital.

The BoTree Bar

The BoTree Bar offers an impressive selection of cocktails, features stunning overhead colourful bubbles of ever-changing lights and hosts live DJs from Thursday to Saturday.


Already firmly placed on the map in Los Angeles, the beautiful LAVO restaurant serves sophisticated Italian cuisine with coastal flair. The tables are generously spaced over two floors, with the best seats in the house being the stylish booths. A welcoming complementary selection of fresh crudities and light bread sticks are given to each table. Choose from starters such as fritto misto – calamari, prawns and hot cherry peppers – or the deliciously delicate grilled octopus. For mains, there’s a selection of homemade pastas and pizza. Penne a la vodka, a signature dish, is pure heaven! Add a little drama with a rich tiramisu for dessert and watch as your waiter releases it from its cylinder at the table; or you could indulge in the infinitely layered peanut butter cake. Service is impeccable, too, rounding off a fantastic experience.

A grid of lights create a magical experience at SUSHISAMBA

Towering 230 metres above the City of London, Heron Tower is the capital’s second tallest building. On the 39th floor, SUSHISAMBA takes advantage of its position, with a sweeping terrace that offers magnificent views.

Of course, it’s not all about the views; enjoy a selection of warming cocktails and choose from the brand’s signature Japanese and South American fare.

Struggling to decide on your food order? The Festive Taste of Samba tasting menu is here to save the day, with dishes including crispy crab taquitos with avocado and spiced mango, Japanese Wagyu maki with caviar and shaved truffle, robata-grilled fillet mignon and the white chocolate-crumbed Sambazonia Bubble to finish.
