Job description

The hotel

The Dixon, a new boutique style hotel part of Autograph Collection Hotels opened its doors in December 2018. Taking centre stage in the Tower Bridge neighbourhood on Tooley Street, The Dixon is set to be a new cultural hub for the capital’s centre of artistic activity.

Named after John Dixon Butler – the architect who originally constructed the building in 1905 as a Magistrates’ Court and police station – the hotel takes inspiration from the area’s vibrant cultural heritage, while also capturing its new wave of creative cool.

The 193 rooms redefine the traditional boutique hotel by seamlessly incorporating the local neighbourhood’s culture through an artful mix of heritage design. Think simple brickwork, tall windows and modern furniture from British designers that will sit alongside more classic pieces, whilst curated artworks from local artists will hang on the walls.

The restaurant, café and bar

Subtly referencing the building’s purpose as a Magistrates Court, Provisioners restaurant, café and bar serves as a neighbourhood oasis that will welcome not only hotel guests but also the local trade.
Provisioners is a place where you can eat, drink, relax and let the day pass you by; it’s a place where guests can be satisfied, whatever their need and staff make every effort to offer warm, individual and bespoke service.

Coffee is the Mark of Craft at The Dixon – it is integral to all elements of the hotel experience and touches all guests, so is placed at a high level of importance in the restaurants and café’s operations. Upholding high standards in this department is an imperative.

The café sells grab-and-go style food and drink, the restaurant serves an accessible all-day European menu and the hotel bar serves world class classic cocktails.
