Plan the perfect boutique staycation in the heart of Covent Garden and enjoy tickets to one of the year’s most anticipated exhibitions: The Art of Banksy. The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street is the official hotel partner for this showcase of iconic pieces, opening on the 20th of May. To celebrate, the hotel has introduced The Banksy Edition; with the opportunity to stay in this 4* deluxe hotel and enjoy fast tracked tickets to the exhibition.
Set just a two-minute walk from the exhibition, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street is the ideal spot
for waking up to a lazy breakfast before jumping the museum queue and marvelling at Banksy’s works.
Make the most of your stay with a lunch or dinner at Monmouth Kitchen, or go boutique-hopping in the wonderful Seven Dials and Covent Garden. The Banksy Edition is also inclusive of priority early check-in/out (subject to availability) and exclusive discounted rates on local car parks – perfect if arriving by car.
In addition, during their stay guests will have the opportunity to purchase a specially created, limited- edition cocktail in celebration of the exhibition called ‘The Mist’. The cocktail takes inspiration from some of Banksy’s most famous pieces of the artist: Bubble Slide Girl, Girl with Flair and Love is in the Air. Head Mixologist, Pierpaolo Schirru, encapsulates the themes of these iconic works through flavours of pomelo and grapefruit gin, contrasted with the earthiness and floral tones of the Pisco La Caravedo, finished with a theatrical rosemary edible bubble smoke.
