Dao by Dorsett Announces Third Property: Dao Hornsey Town Hall in North London
Opening Spring 2023, the property’s ‘aparthotel’ model lets guests enjoy their own custom living space in fully serviced apartments

[February 2023, Singapore] Conceived as a new hospitality paradigm for a new era, Dao by Dorsett (known as Dao), is delighted to announce its third property in two years with the upcoming opening of Dao by Dorsett Hornsey Town Hall in Crouch End, North London.

This newest addition to the portfolio follows on from the opening of Dao West London in June 2022 and Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore in August 2022. Dao Hornsey Town Hall will open in the iconic Grade II* listed Hornsey Town Hall located in Crouch End. The Town Hall is steeped in history and boasts a rich heritage stretching back 80 years.

Dao by Dorsett Hornsey Town Hall will span across four floors and will include a mix of studios and one-bedroom apartments, many of which, such as the old Borough Treasurer’s room, include original ironmongery and timber panelling that stretches from floor to ceiling. These unique features have been restored and paired with modern pendant lighting and terrazzo-inspired worktops in the multi-functional kitchenettes, giving each room a mix of period and contemporary fittings.

As well as the hotel, the vibrant new development will bring together impressive co-working spaces, restaurants and cafes, a panoramic rooftop bar and a new Arts Centre - all while honouring the building's distinguished legacy. The Arts Centre will host a diverse programme of high-quality performances and events, from theatre and film to music, dance, comedy, and shows, run by cutting-edge arts and media specialists, Time + Space Co. In the warmer months, activity will spill out onto Town Hall Square for summer fairs, exhibitions, local farmers’ markets, and festivals, bringing the community together to enjoy live music and various food offerings.

The Arts Centre and Dao by Dorsett are being designed to ensure that they pave the way for a cultural renaissance for Crouch End. Hornsey Town Hall will be a place to serve the needs of the local community and businesses, and a visitor destination hosting world-class entertainment. The environment will promote productivity and creativity, all underpinned with a top-class hospitality experience for people to work, socialise, relax and enjoy for generations to come.

This continued commitment to community and the value of connection forms the backbone of the Dao by Dorsett brand. Socially and locally driven, its ‘aparthotel’ model lets guests enjoy their own custom living space in fully serviced apartments alongside multiple touchpoints to interact with their local environment, which allows guests to ‘travel their way,’ anywhere’ through the brand’s three attributes: Harmonious, Custom-Fit and Social.
