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 furniture is bespoke and includes individual soft back dark wood chairs and booth seating, carefully arranged to create intimacy within the larger dining space and maximise magnificent views across Waterloo Bridge from the smaller dining space. The room is lit by slender black metal wall and ceiling lights designed by Serge Mouille.
