Lounge Access at 02

NY-LON Bar entrance at 02

Anyone who’s sampled the delights of Virgin Atlantic’s Clubhouse at Heathrow will endorse the airline’s lounge know-how. And now it brings its flair to The O2 in London with official partner Delta Air Lines. Sat Bal (24 Jul’15)

The aptly labelled NY-LON lounge bar brings New York and London style cues to London’s O2 to give customers that first-class check-in lounge feel.  The combined ethos of Delta and Virgin brings customers NY-style cured meats and English dishes such as Billingsgate fish pie.

The bar’s head mixologist offers classic cocktails with a creative twist of classics served alongside an innovative range of aviation themed cocktails such as Aviation, Transatlantic, Flying Lady, Maiden Voyager and Atlanta.

Manchester-based design agency, LOVE, received the brief to create a stylish new lounge bar at 02, the first out-of-airport lounge bar of its kind to open in London. NY-LON will be managed for the airlines by leading hospitality brand, Levy Restaurants UK

Reuben Arnold, SVP of marketing & customer experience at Virgin Atlantic, said “We’ve created NY-LON as a celebration of our transatlantic network which provides customers with a seamless, more enjoyable way to fly between the U.K. and U.S. Our lounge bar will offer customers a brand-new experience at the O2 that showcases our airlines’ world-class service.”

Tim Mapes, Delta’s SVP of marketing said: “Opening NY-LON is the next exciting step in our partnership and we look forward to helping travellers enjoy the Delta-Virgin Atlantic brand of hospitality for which we’re famous when they next visit The O2.”

Members of the airlines’ SkyMiles and Flying Club will benefit from a range of special offers and discounts. NY-LON takes up 400 guests and features a large bar and seating area, plus a “secret space” for meetings, private dining or small events.

Open seven days a week, NY-LON is set to open at the end of  this month.

House Party

Hedsor House fireworks 1

Hedsor House introduces 11 diligently restored guest rooms, this month, to guests who demand venue versatility. Chris Page (3 July ’15)

Mark Ronson held his birthday party there, Nicole Kidman filmed The Golden Compass and Dustin  Hoffman’s Quartet  extensively used Hedsor House as a film set dispelling any image of the heritage venue as ‘conventional’.

The new guest rooms mean that party revellers can stay overnight at the 1166 house. Its Bridal Suite spans the entire front of the house putting it  among the largest in Europe. Exclusive use of the venue means all manner of private events can be hosted and guests get a taste of living in their own stately home.

Hedsor House Guest room

The restoration has taken three years of planning with architects and designers of CJCT Studios working closely with the owners, the Shephard family.

Exclusive hire of Hedsor House starts at £5,450 +VAT booking the house for an event or party. This includes house hire and overnight accommodation for up to 22 people (sharing double rooms).
