Locke is a hotel and yet isn't. We are an ecosystem of likeminded travellers that need a space to meet, play, work and thrive when we are away from home. We believe that living is both an art and a science - it is our aim to foster an environment that allows you to live better. Locke evolves by learning from its community. We seek to improve living through the following:
Our cultural programme has been designed to entertain, enlighten and bring the local and traveller community together in creative ways. We believe that restoration and entertainment can take a myriad of shapes, which is why Locke’s cultural programme is so unique.
No two events are alike and our objective is to host a series of events that appeal to different interests and passions. Here is a sample of the types of events that we like to host at Locke:
EAST LONDON AT DAWN is a collection of images showing our city, for the most part, empty and devoid of its usual flood of people. Of those who are awake, most are working, preparing the city for the day before the streets are inundated by the crowds.
For over a decade photographer Anthony Epes has shot many of the world's iconic cities at their most peaceful time, dawn. Leman Locke has collaborated with Anthony to combine a collection of his images of our local neighbourhood, East London.
Anthony connects us to the atmosphere of sunrise in the city and takes us on a unique exploration of the places in East London that fascinate him. From the stark brutalist architecture of the Balfour Tower, to the run- down Leaside area of Hackney Wick, to the vibrant edgy street art that appears and disappears at random, to the imprint of new communities, foods and cultures that make up this ever-changing part of London.
East London at Dawn is included in all of the Leman Locke studios and suites.
The photobook can also be purchased exclusively at the Locke Shop for £35.
There are two types of venue space to choose from:
Treves & Hyde is an indoor / outdoor lounge / restaurant that can be hired for events. The space is divided into three sections:
- Outdoor: Treves & Hyde has a large outdoor barbecue that can accommodate outdoor events (weather permitting) for up to 50 people
- Hyde: Hyde is the Ground Floor bar that can accommodate up to 80 people (standing room only)
- Treves is the first floor restaurant / lounge that can accommodate up to 60 people seated or up to 100 standing
All three spaces can be hired for larger events.
Locke Labs are design led creative meeting spaces designed for those that require more from their meeting room experience. Whether you are presenting, conducting a brain storming or team building session, holding an interview / board meeting or need a quiet space to meet, the Labs have been intelligently designed to foster creativity and improve focus / productivity.

Wellbeing is at the heart of the Locke Experience. Wellness can foster greater happiness, clarity of mind, creativity & productivity. Yet, we all know how difficult it is to maintain our sense of wellbeing while travelling. It can be inconvenient and difficult and consequently, we can find ourselves feeling misplaced and off-centered. As one of newest lifestyle hotels in London, Locke aims to make health & wellness as seamless as possible:
Let's face it: most hotel gyms suck. A couple of treadmills and a row machine isn’t a gym - it's called a shoebox with a few machines. Locke Gym is small but comprehensive. Our gym has been designed by fitness aficionados that know their Sumo Deadlift from their Triple Band Hip Thrust. Whether you looking to burn off calories from Treves & Hyde the night before, improving your health, gaining muscle mass, training for the next Tough Mudder or dedicated to Cross Fit, our Gym has been designed to meet your needs. Here are a few items included in our Gym:
Furthermore, we have better yoga and fitness trainers available for one-on-one training.
In our commitment to make wellness seamless for our guests, Locke has organised a wellness programme, curated by Locke and complimentary to our guests. These events are typically held weekly and include the following:
In partnership with Viva Therapies, Locke offers a range of in-room spa treatments designed to rejuvenate & restore. Our seasoned therapists provide the following services within the comfort and privacy of your suites:
We believe that what you put on your skin and hair is as important as what you put in your mouth. Locke has partnered with London-based body care company Kinsey to create a cosmetics line bespoke for Locke.
These smell as good as they sound and yet they are guilt-free (paraben & cruelty free). Each Locke suite / studio is equipped with a complimentary 40 ml bottle of each of the items listed above.
Unique to Locke, the Locke Coves have been created as a quiet space to accommodate yoga, meditation, mindfulness, pilates, personal training or just a quiet place to let your brain breathe. With views overlooking East London, the Coves have been designed with simplicity as a priority ensuring that there are no distractions.
There are no costs associated with utilising the Coves. Ask a House Host to pre-book a Cove for your quiet time, a personal training session or spa treatment.
