    For the second year running, the world’s first established champagne house, Ruinart, will welcome guests to its one-bedroom residence, Hotel 1729 in Notting Hill. Jonathan Anderson, creative director of Loewe, has collaborated with Ruinart to curate an exquisite space inspired by Maison Ruinart and the relationship between the art world and the exclusive champagne house. Art pieces from Kettle’s Yard Art Gallery in Cambridge and Anderson’s personal collection of artworks can be found throughout the hotel.

    The luxury pop-up will welcome guests for a limited one-night stay between 4th and 14th July. The one-bedroom hotel is for a maximum of two people per night. This means, across the ten nights the hotel will be open, only 20 people will have to opportunity to stay – talk about exclusivity.

    A stay at the Hotel 1729 includes chauffeur transfers in partnership with BMW, a one-night stay, dinner, breakfast and a selection of Ruinart cuvée. Residents wishing to share the experience can invite up to six guests to share an exclusive dining experience.
