Much as I’m still annoyed by Accor Hotels at the moment, one of their hotel managers has told me about a new concept that is being launched which is the rolling out of Charlie’s Corner, offering craft beers and a relaxed cafe bar style dining option. The name seems a bit random, but if their bars can actually offer something unique and exciting in the way of craft beers, then they’d have a selling point which would make them interesting for non-guests to go to. They’ve got one at Ibis Bristol at the moment, but they’ve also launched it at the newly opened Ibis London Sutton Point.
I’ve emailed the Ibis London Sutton Point hotel today to see what the concept is like and to see if they’ll send me any photos and beer lists.
[update, I emailed the hotel and also the general manager as another hotel gave me their email address, but as of 48 hours later they haven’t replied so I can’t add yet anything to this post which is rather a shame. I’ll amend this if they do get chance to reply though as I’m very interested in this whole concept]
