Artist Residence Bristol to open this October

Charlie and Justin Salisbury, founders of the boutique hotel group Artist Residence, have announced their fifth and largest project yet, will be opening in Bristol in October 2019.

The latest opening is a former boot factory located in the heart of the St Pauls district just minutes from Bristol’s city centre and Stokes Croft. There will be 23 bedrooms above a bar, cafe, garden, restaurant and events space.

Part Georgian townhouse, part boot factory, the Grade I listed building was on the ‘At Risk’ register in 2015 when Charlotte and acquired the property.

The hotel aims to revive the building’s history – restoring original beams, industrial sliding doors and Georgian cornicing as well as exposing the original brick walls, typical of the hotel group’s “signature style”.

Justin Salisbury, said: “For us, the real appeal of this dilapidated building is the opportunity to bring a corner of this historic square back to life for the community to enjoy”.

The restaurant and bar, to be named The Boot Factory, is designed to be a hub for hotel guests and the local community alike.
