“We are very proud to have been selected to create this stunning design with the premium hospitality design practice rhubarb.

Versital’s metal banded ‘Arabesque’ tops found their place in the more feminine part of the restaurant due to their subtle finish, while the ‘Norvein’ marble finish compliments the masculine northern gallery. Both galleries are brought together in the main dining area inspired by a sixties dance hall with a glamorous bar at one end and walnut and rose-coloured mirrored feature wall at the other end.
