A Northern Ireland fit-out company has finished work on a high-end boutique hotel in London - with features including the second-longest bar in the UK.

McCue Crafted Fit in Carrickfergus carried out major work on the new Standard Hotel in King's Cross - in the former Camden Town Hall Annexe.

The annexe is regarded as a prime example of UK Brutalist architecture and was once the headquarters of Camden Council.

McCue's work on the project consisted of the fit-out of the entire ground floor area including the hotel lobby and the Isla restaurant.

It's also kitted out the hotel's bar, believed to be the second-longest in Britain. It takes second place to The Bowland Brewery Beer Hall in Clitheroe, Lancashire.

McCue managing director Gary Purdy said: "The Standard Hotel in London was a fantastic project for McCue to be involved in, especially with it being the brand's first hotel outside the US.

"We were delighted to have the opportunity to showcase our work and craftsmanship in what was a unique and exciting project for McCue."

The Standard group owns another five hotels in the United States.

McCue Crafted Fit has around 140 staff.
