The German Gymnasium is an iconic landmark in London that has been meticulously transformed into a contemporary dining destination. Set in the heart of the capital, this historic building once served as the UK’s first purpose-built gymnasium. Furthermore, it now houses a chic and sophisticated restaurant offering a refined menu of German and European cuisine.

This stylish venue is a visual treat, featuring a sleek and modern design. This seamlessly blends the building’s heritage with contemporary flair. The German Gymnasium’s interior boasts elegant furnishings, a grand bar, and stunning architectural details that pay homage to its history.

Crest Leather’s Shelly Blossom, Selvaggio Sage, and Saloon Grey collections were employed to furnish the historic gymnasium, creating a stunning visual amalgamation of classic and modern aesthetics.

The bar area is adorned with opulent pastel pink bar stools from the Shelly Blossom collection. This exudes elegance and sophistication while adding a pop of color to the ambiance. In contrast, the banquette and fixed seating are cloaked in the Selvaggio Sage and Saloon Grey distressed leathers. This combination of earthy tones and textures not only complements the venue’s historic features but also lends a sense of luxury and warmth to the overall atmosphere.

Crest Leather’s Shelly Blossom, Selvaggio Sage, and Saloon Grey collections are crafted with the utmost care and precision. This ensures superior durability and unparalleled comfort. The exceptional quality of these leathers perfectly aligns with the gymnasium’s ethos of blending tradition with modernity, making them the ideal choice for this unique and iconic space.
