What they say:
Deaf Lounge is a revolutionary new bar concept in Seven Sisters which aims to provide the deaf community with a great social hub. Owners Paul Cripps and Domani Peir said of their new venture, “Deaf Lounge is open to both the deaf and non-deaf communities — we're eager that it encourages deaf people to socialise with the wider society. For example the bar will play music as that’s really important to attract non-deaf customers.” As well as this, there will be workshops and a host of other features to make Deaf Lounge a perfect haven for deaf people wanting to have a great night out in London.
What we say:
As well as the staff being trained in sign language, other aspects of the deaf-friendly bar include bright lighting, so customers can see each other speak with signs, and pens and paper for writing messages. Deaf Lounge is a fantastic concept for the London bar scene and it is surprising that someone didn't have this bright idea a little sooner. With a laidback and fun vibe, Deaf Lounge is a bar and clubbing experience that will provide all the residents of North London with something a little different.
