One of the standout features of this brand new club is its interior, think Moulin Rouge and Studio 54, and you’ll get the picture. The club’s interior will be adorned with heavy brocade curtains, carmine red leather, banquettes and even has Swarovski crystals embedded into the seating.
The luxurious Main Bar (above) is the first place you’ll see when you step off the street. It is an ornate setting and somewhere you can lose yourself in good conversation whilst enjoying good food and tasty cocktails, which master mixologists will prepare at the pewter topped bar.
Downstairs houses the White Room Restaurant, which will be a fantastic place to wine and dine whilst surrounded by white leather, hidden nooks and elaborate features.
Following the colour theme and adjacent to the White Room is the Red Room (main image). Once you step through the curtains, you’ll be greeted by leather button-back walls with crystals velvet seating, all with deep carmine red tones.
