Squaremeal Review of Hoi Polloi at Ace Hotel ?

‘An English modernist brasserie’ was the brief for this super-stylish all-dayer at the Ace Hotel, and the guys from Universal Design Studio really nailed it: nerds will find much to fawn over and fondle here, from timber walls to Ercol Butterfly chairs and Castiglioni ‘Snoopy’ lamps. You can enter via the ‘secret entrance’ in the florists, but we suggest using the adjacent hotel lobby for a better appraisal of the scene. It’s invariably buzzing here, with a seemingly endless supply of beautiful creatives lured in by Hoi Polloi’s fashion-conscious offer. Breakfast brings chia-seed Bircher muesli, lunch sees soft-shell crab rolls and teatime means cute googly-eyed fancies. Dinner heralds a more ambitious repertoire, from pretty plates of blackened sea trout with macerated fennel, or dry-aged pork chop with broad beans, peas and wild mushrooms, to pistachio and raspberry Eton mess. Cocktail hour is never dull, and we’re pleased that service seems to be on the up.

Hackles raised, but expectations surpassed

by   platinum reviewer (216)

Jan 2017

As a resident of Maida Vale who works in Mayfair, my sphere of dining experiences is both narrow yet wide. Some of the best restaurants in the country are just a short distance away, but I do end up restricting myself to a relatively confined geographic sphere. Against this background, I found myself out of my comfort zone when invited to dinner in currently fashionable Shoreditch. Prior to even sitting down, my hackles were raised. To start, the restaurant was named, ever-so-pretentiously, ‘hoi...

Great for Sunday brunch

We love coming to Hoi Poloi. The staff are really friendly and hugely accommodating (esp. if you have a young child), the food is great and they play pretty good fun music too. After about 12pm on a Sunday, a string quartet starts to play interesting pop songs. All good. Will go again and again.

Ace Shoreditch

by   platinum reviewer (51)

Dec 2013

Fancy some ‘hoi polloi’ in east London? Uber fashionable Ace hotel has landed slam in the middle of Shoreditch high st. This area was crying out for a swanky, contemporary all in one bar/ restaurant / hotel for both locals and tourists. The entrance to the restaurant is via a covert flower shop, or slip past the bouncer through the main hotel and mingle with East London's finest. The hotel lobby is more of an easygoing 70s sprawling lounge with midcentury/scandi furniture and groovy toons and bongos...

    Brunching it at Hoi Polloi, doesn’t get more eggcellent than this!

    A-fed, a Canadian ex-pat like me decided to give up her London life and make the move to LA sunshine. Can’t blame her – those palm trees and that MBA she’ll be getting. It’s all about the brains and beauty people.

    A proper team send off was in order, of course that means taking a couple hours out of our day to gossip over warm flat whites. The menus were printed on newsprint and all of the cups were metal, reminiscent of my Scandinavian design board on Pinterest...
