About Mortimer House

Set in a seven-storey Art Deco building in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia, Mortimer House brings beautifully designed work, social and wellbeing spaces together under one roof. With hospitality at its core, the House is a stimulating place for members to collaborate, create and unwind — as well as feel at home.

Our ethos is inspired by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. We use a holistic approach to hospitality to create carefully considered spaces that are exquisite yet unpretentious, centred on helping people connect to what matters to them.

About Maslow’s 

Maslow’s is a group of progressive hospitality brands.  Our mission is to create a collection of workspaces, members’ houses, restaurants & bars that are developed and operated within unique spaces in vibrant neighbourhoods and beautiful settings. 

We opened the doors of our first site, Mortimer House in London’s Fitzrovia, in late 2017. Our second London House - 1 Warwick, opened in Soho this March.
