Schpoons & Forx and LEVEL8IGHT Sky Bar And Terrace Set To Open At Hilton Bournemouth
Celebrity Chef Matt Tebbutt Partners with Hilton Bournemouth
BOURNEMOUTH, UK - New hotel Hilton Bournemouth, has announced a partnership with Matt Tebbutt Restaurants Limited. Chef, restaurateur and broadcaster, Matt Tebbutt, will oversee the property's two food and beverage venues - Schpoons & Forx restaurant and LEVEL8IGHT sky bar and terrace within the hotel, set to open this December.
Located on the ground floor of the hotel, the 140-cover, 220 sq ft Schpoons & Forx menu will open all day including breakfast and brunch. The concept will focus on modern British sharing plates made using seasonal ingredients and feature a tandoor in an open kitchen.
Schpoons & Forx's interior includes copper foiled windows, spoons and forks used in various pieces of art dotted around the restaurant, hanging copper baskets and quirky frames. The space is decked out in rich wood finishes, jewel-toned tile and comfortable luxe seating with feature lighting and an open kitchen.
LEVEL8IGHT will be Bournemouth's highest bar. Comprising 130 covers, including 50 al fresco seats, the 238 sq ft lounge bar will offer a comprehensive range of cocktails, premium spirits, craft beers and wines. An afternoon tea menu will also be available from midday along with a bar snack menu.
LEVEL8IGHT sky bar and terrace will feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views overlooking Bournemouth bay, a mix of velvet and leather high chairs and chandelier-style lighting around a centrepiece bar.
Cedric Horgnies, general manager, Hilton Bournemouth comments: "This exciting appointment will put our new hotel, along with the restaurant and bar, firmly on the map. Matt is well known for his television work, but we must also remember he is a proven talent and a serious chef and we are privileged to collaborate with him. Schpoons & Forx and LEVEL8IGHT sky bar and terrace will be a fantastic addition to the area and we can't wait to welcome our first guests in December".
Matt Tebbutt comments: "After closing the Foxhunter earlier in the year to focus on my television career, I have been eager to get back into the kitchen and launch something really exciting and innovative. This new partnership with Hilton Bournemouth will see us open an all-day restaurant and sky bar positioned as real destination venues in their own right."
