While the area may have had most of its grit pol­ished up, the Hox­ton – a nine-storey new-build on the site of the for­mer Rosenwach wa­ter tower fac­tory – has re­tained some in­dus­trial el­e­ments, in­clud­ing a re­con­struc­tion of the fac­tory’s old car­riage house, around which the restau­rant is built.

The sunken ground floor is pre­dom­i­nantly pub­lic space, with vin­tage so­fas, flo­ral arm­chairs and two fire­places, while the bar and restau­rant have a slicker aes­thetic with a square, brass-topped cen­tral bar and a vast glass wall that opens on to the court­yard. The rooftop restau­rant and bar, Sum­merly, takes in­spi­ra­tion from New Eng­land’s east­ern seaboard, with pas­tel-coloured loungers, flo­ral­topped bar stools and un­ob­structed Man­hat­tan sky­line views.
