To compliment the bar a proposed dining and lounge continue the feeling of luxe. The dining space follows through the colour palette of the bar area, but it becomes darker making the space more comforting. The feature fixed seating along the back of the room is a dark grey velvet which again compliments the table lights, all influencing the feeling of the space. The chevron wooden wall creates an interesting feature within the space and is complimented by brass details which are continued through the track lighting and accessories.
