Zanzibar Locke aparthotel in Dublin reimagines building's disco origins in brand new scheme.

As Locke Living’s second Dublin-based aparthotel, Zanzibar Locke’s retro living spaces and inviting communal areas create the perfect central homestead for guests.

Overlooking views of the riverside and situated amongst the cobbled streets of the city centre, Zanzibar Locke provides a beautiful base from which to explore. Previously home to a nightclub, the refurbished building is made up of four Georgian townhouses, where Dublin’s bars, club, shops and galleries are just a stone’s throw away.

High ceilings and large windows form a bright, open shared space that includes a co-working area, cocktail bar and workout studio. Exposed brick walls, retro-inspired tiles and an impressive contemporary mezzanine bar lends itself to the historic building's character, while ensuring a functional design scheme.

Spacious apartments make use of a tonal colour palette of muted yellows and dusty pinks, while the mixed textures of the soft furnishings and light oak form a cosy feel. An additional pop of colour, black accents and carefully curated art culminates in eye-catching, contemporary interiors.

Atkinson & Kirby’s Ness Smoked Oak flooring was chosen to be fitted throughout the building, with its filled knots and splits adding an aged look that works well with the surroundings.

The engineered hardwood flooring complements the varying oaky tones found within each area of Zanzibar Locke, ranging from the rich, honey toned ceiling panels, to the light washed oak furniture.
