Founded by Sharan Pasricha, Ennismore is a global hospitality company and the curator of unique properties and experiences. Based in London, the group is part developer, part operator and part in-house creative studio.
We began our story with the first of our Hoxton hotels, The Hoxton, Shoreditch, in 2012. It disrupted the hotel model with its open house ethos, celebrating the diversity and originality of the local neighbourhoods. Since then Ennismore’s portfolio has grown to include Hoxton properties in London, Amsterdam and Paris, the Scottish landmark Gleneagles and several stand-alone, well-regarded restaurants in London. And we’re far from done: the Hoxton continues to grow globally, with three new properties opening in the US this year alone, we’ll be introducing a new brand that will re-imagine the budget hotel model and have many other new concepts and ideas in the works.
It’s safe to say our ambition to create experiences that inspire discovery and to do more things that are, simply put, fun, knows no bounds and will continue to take us many exciting places.
