The Lounge is a dynamic space, perfect for private events like birthday parties, after work drinks, corporate events and wedding receptions. The tranquil terrace is also an ideal space to host seasonal events like barbecues, wine tastings or wellbeing classes throughout the summer.

Featuring a bar, dining area, lounge and a unique catering proposition for private events, the comfortable lounge is transformed throughout the day and night, making it the ideal space for your next event, whether you’re hosting an intimate private dining for 20 people or a cocktail evening for 80.
