Ireland: edyn Group will expand its lifestyle aparthotel brand Locke outside of the UK for the first time in December with the opening of Zanzibar Locke in Dublin.

Situated on Ormond Quay, overlooking the River Liffey, Zanzibar Locke has been developed on the site of the legendary Zanzibar Nightclub. The Georgian building has been restored by local contractors, joiners and artists and features 160 studio apartments, access to complimentary co-working, meeting and events space, workout studio, food and drink outlets and varied cultural programme.

Apartment sizes range from 25 to 80 square metres. The aparthotel will also house BARAZA - an all-day restaurant by NolaClan, serving Irish-inspired small plates and craft cocktails.

"We have been incredibly fortunate that the extended-stay sector has performed comparatively well throughout the pandemic. While this year has been challenging for us all, at edyn we have benefited from the resilience and adaptability of our business model, combined with the financial strength and long-term outlook of our investors. This allowed us to push forward with our expansion plans in a time when very few hotels were opening. Our portfolio has never felt more relevant and we look forward to further Locke openings across Europe in 2021, along with exciting transformation and growth plans for other edyn brands," said Stephen McCall, CEO of edyn.

The fourth London Locke property is set to launch in January, in Dalston, followed by further openings in Europe with a second location in Dublin (Beckett Locke, opening March) plus two openings in Munich (Schwan Locke and WunderLocke, opening May).
