Located on the top floor of the brand new DoubleTree by Hilton, The Lexington presents a stylish night out in Hull City Centre.
The beautifully designed cocktail lounge opened in late 2017. We spoke with Bar Manager, Sam Chambers, to find out more about this brilliant new venue.
“When you arrive in the hotel, there's a dedicated lift that brings you directly up to us," Sam explains. "As you enter the fourth floor, you'll find the bar to your left and a VIP section right in front of you. This area can be hired out for large parties that are celebrating a special occasion.”
The venue stands on the old site of the popular Lexington Avenue nightclub, affectionally known by locals as LAs. An enormous construction project has resulted in the creation of the ideal spot for drinks before a show at the nearby Hull Truck Theatre, or delicious refreshment following a long day exploring the city’s galleries and retail hotspots.
“We're perfect for all occasions," adds Sam. "The Lexington Bar is great for a catch-up over coffee during the daytime, or relaxing drinks in the afternoon and evening. And of course, we’re open until late, too.”
As the weather gets warmer, visitors will be able to enjoy the new rooftop terrace that overlooks the city: “This attractive space will feature a living wall, wicker furniture and heaters. It’ll be a great place to spend time with friends under the summer sun or as the night brings a revitalising breeze.”
As for the menu, there’s an extensive choice of your favourite beverages, including wines, beers and cocktails. Unique recipes have also been crafted especially for the Hull branch.
“Signature cocktails include Humber Mist, View from the Fourth, and The Lexington,” Sam tells us. "And if you’re feeling peckish, we serve food from 9am until 7pm every day. Our mouthwatering nibbles include olives, breads and sharing platters for those who want something to go with their drinks. We also have a range of main meals, such as burgers and salads.”
“After the success of our first few months, we’re now planning to appoint a resident DJ to put on a regular night for our customers,” Sam reveals. “Keep your eyes peeled for special events, VIP parties, Industry nights and cocktail masterclasses.”
Speaking with Sam, you can truly see her passion for the new venue: “It’s a completely different experience from what you’d usually expect from a hotel bar. It’s a fabulous chance to reminisce about the good old days at LAs whilst enjoying something totally fresh and modern.”
The Lexington is located inside DoubleTree by Hilton on Ferensway in Hull and open daily 9am-1am.
