If you're yet to venture there, here's what to expect from the top down: the first floor Gin Parlour – which is available for private hire – is the place to get comfy on a snug sofa and gaze out of an elongated window at the busy streets below. Meander downstairs and you'll find yourself immersed in the art deco-inspired Botanical Bar, complete with hanging plants, banquette seating and general plush vibes.
Some visitors might want to leave it there, but those who venture down another set of stairs will find themselves in the throbbing heart of the venue: the basement Festival Club. Expect a more refined late night partying experience here than at neighbouring spots; the space is kitted out to entertain the city's glitterati into the wee hours with DJ sets, eclectic cocktails and sophisticated fun.
