For corporate entertaining, the Cocktail Bar is our favourite. The interior is a combination of dip-dyed oak panelling with classic egg and dart details, soft lilac and blue leathers and a Nero Marquina marble fireplace, as well as hummingbird inspired details and graduated brass accents on the bar.
