GREEN ROOMS IS A GAME-CHANGER
Recently we have seen stories in the news about hotels having rocky relationships with influencers. Here at Green Rooms we take a different ethos and we value the creative output of those individuals who are using the internet to share the world, as they see it, by curating magazine-like channels. We're a hotel, but we're also a flagship social enterprise, here to breathe life into London's creative scene - and working with "influencers" plays a part in that. Green Rooms also shows off the best of North London, so bringing a wider audience to local performers - like Maxine who runs our open-mic soul night - is super!
THE ARTS IS SOCIAL
Punching your way into creative industries is tough and competitive. Youngsters in general shouldn't be disencouraged from experimenting with the free tools available to them. Building an online brand can be a pragmatic hobby that brings creative and technical skills together with personable skills. Part of being a fine artist is getting yourself out there and learning to sell your work. Social media gives everyone the chance of doing this without being brash or noisy.
STAY WITH US
SO - if you need somewhere to stay in London for the night - we have a monthly allocation whereby a creative influencer or travel blogger can stay here in exchange for finding their own spin, or twist on Green Rooms and sharing images and stories about their Green Rooms stay with their audience.
As an independent business with super affordable rooms, we can only agree to a few influencer propositions. BUT, we are always happy to hear from you - so don't be afraid to strike up a conversation with us.
WE GET IT
We opened in May 2016 with backing from Mayor of London partly to address London's lack of affordable hotels. Artists keep being driven out of London by rocket rents, but many can barely afford to stay overnight in the capital before a job interview, let alone live here!
As London's first and leading arts hotel, here at Green Rooms we're happy for creative influencers to stay, especially artists who are doing exciting things with their channels.
Green Rooms isn't the focus of a guest's visit to London, our job as an arts hotel is to be a reliable base from which you can spring off - on nights out, to galleries, to photo shoots, to concerts, to explore and research, to meet others. When an influencer stays here, we want to play our part in that exciting wider story.
THE TYPES WE LIKE!
Here are four examples of Instagram accounts we love, they all mix up a variety of urban adventure, travel, architecture, fashion and leisure: Nicole MacInnes (@nicolemacinnes), Mat Buckets (@mat_buckets), Onyi (@mossonyi) and Oliver Hooson (@olvh)
We love how Nicole, Mat, Onyi and Oliver play with colour and composition to keep their channels interesting and they have a sharp eye for hidden gems, always trying out new things or spotting little details with their camera that some of us might overlook.
It's a visual language and let's face it - who ISN'T hooked on Instagram? *Slyly opens reception draw to look at phone*
