Five ways to experience retro glamour at this boutique in central London hotel

London, April 2023 – Located at the heart of Leicester Square, Victory House Hotel offers
guests a unique 1950s-inspired retro experience for global wanderers and retro enthusiasts
The hotel pays homage to this eclectic big screen era with retro designs and art-deco style
décor enveloped in historic architecture – all whilst offering front-row seats to the red carpet
action of the square. Here are five of the most notable:

A cinematic experience on every floor
The hotel provides a cinematic experience on each floor for Victory House guests waiting for
the elevator. They can watch historic Hollywood archives from clips shown on large screens
and see never-seen-before footage of both on and off-screen royalty. They get the
opportunity to enjoy hours’ worth of silent reels on every floor.
Art-deco style décor
The 86 chic bedrooms are designed to take guests back to the 1950s cinematic glamour
with a soft teal, grey, and beige furnishings and subtle cinema-inspired 1950s touches like
dial phones and bellman-cart style brass dressings. The traditional white tiled bathrooms
fitted with modern finishings also make Victory House Hotel rooms and suites a
photographer's dream destination in the heart of London's big-screen action.
Vintage Wine Bar
Victory House Hotel London's classic Riviera-inspired Wine Bar is a must-visit for guests.
The Wine Bar has live jazz music and retro art inside and offers premium Leicester Square
seats for al fresco lounging outside. It’s a content creator’s ideal destination and serves a
wide selection of fresh coffee, wine, beverages and hearty bar snacks.

Historic architecture
Dating much further back than the 1950’s, the distinctive renaissance style terracotta façade
of Victory House Hotel was built by a leading theatre designer in 1898. For decades the
building was the Hotel de l' Europe and remained a top dining spot in the West End and a
popular hangout for Hollywood’s A-listers. Guests can sip wine or coffee in the Victory House
Wine Bar and relive the history today.

At the heart of London’s cinematic action
Victory House Hotel London provides almost direct access to local retro cinematic-themed
attractions. Film enthusiasts can take a few steps away from the hotel to visit the iconic
Odeon Leicester Square cinema, which has been showing movies since the 1930s and is a
preferred location for film premieres. The Cinema Museum, located just a short distance
from the hotel, houses an extensive collection of cinema artefacts and memorabilia from the
golden age of cinema.
These retro experience features combined with Victory House Hotel’s premium location,
warm and attentive service combine to offer guests a one-of-a-kind experience that
transports them back to one of history’s most exciting bygone eras.
