SEE ALSO – The Martini Bar (above) is conceived as a theatrical and atmospheric drinking parlour, with upholstered banquettes tucked under a canopy of dark sumptuous teal buttoned velvet, which offer a more intimate experience. The main focal points of the room are a gold mirrored and brass clad bar and the black floor lamp called Sinatra and designed by DelightFULL. Bottles are displayed against a faceted smoked gold mirror backdrop cut with the repeat abstracted motif of a martini glass which is animated by a dynamic installation of suspended lights.
The Club Room and Bar in the basement (below) shares the design language of the main spaces, incorporating mirror lined walls and a brass clad bar so that the spaces are distinct yet unified. The entrance hall sets the tone with its charcoal grey walls, restored marble floor and domed ceiling highlighted with warm silver ornament. Ceiling lights designed byDelightFULL.
