Virgin's New LGW Clubhouse Lounge

0

 

Virgin Atlantic’s Gatwick flyers can look forward to a new Clubhouse lounge, check-in area and extra kiosks to aid that relaxed start to their holidays. Chris Page 

An imposing marble bar is sure to get plenty of attention especially with East London cocktail bar White Lyan on board to offer a bespoke selection of cocktails from its award-winning menu.

Taking the cue from its Heathrow predecessor the Gatwick Clubhouse invites more customers to pamper in the spa area, now that it’s doubled the number of treatment rooms.

 

Elsewhere, a woodland themed play area filled with toys and games is designed to keep the children happy while you explore the menu featuring the famous Clubhouse burger alongside a variety of breakfast and lunch options.

 

 

Mark Anderson, Virgin Atlantic’s executive VP, Customer, commented: “We want our customers to have the best possible experience at the airport and those visiting the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse will be in for a real treat. Cocktails designed by award winning mixologists, hearty food options and relaxing spa treatments, all set within a luxurious environment,really make for a truly and memorable customer experience.

“Our Gatwick customers travel to a variety of global destinations and whether they’re planning to relax in the Caribbean or soak up the theme parks in Orlando, our new Clubhouse will make the start of any break truly special.”

The new space is situated next to the Virgin Holidays v-room, across their own private floor, meaning customers really are whisked away from the hustle and bustle of the airport. Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural daylight to flood in along with sweeping views across the runway.

As part of Virgin Atlantic’s switch to the North Terminal, the airline will also be unveiling its new check-in area, situated in Zone A. A giant gold feature wall, along with the usual red and purple tones instantly mark the airline’s arrival.

Virgin Holidays has also announced the opening of its new v-room, which is housed next door to the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse. Virgin Holidays customers can book entry to the v-room via :

Bunga Bunga Launch

0

Sheridan Smith

 

Bunga Bunga Covent Garden launched last night with a headline performance by Sheridan Smith on 12 January. Abigail Parkin

The new live entertainment dining venue hosted guests including Lottie Moss, Donna Air & Joshua Kane who watched Sheridan Smith perform Don't Rain on My Parade and People.

 The event was staged in association with Martini and guests enjoyed cocktails such as Don Silvio Bunga Martini Rubino while rousing performances from the Man in the Balloon took place along with the Champagne Juggler and the Jersey Boys who played alongside the Bunga Boys.

Sheridan Smith wowed the audience in a gold wrap-around dress, in her first performance since her father passed away last year. Her ‘Daddy’s Girl’ tattoo, etched down her arm, made its public tribute to him.

Bunga Bunga Covent Garden is the latest project from Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling’s Inception Group, and boats a new address. BungaTINI on the ground floor is an authentic all-day family friendly Italian pizzeria and bar. However, look again and located in the far corner of BungaTINI is a secret door to a meat locker. Those brave enough to venture beyond the meat locker can expect  some of London’s finest acts.
