A place to meet, across three floors.
Café & Workspace by day – Bar & Lounge once twilight falls.
Inspired by Japan’s famed listening hi-fi bar joints, the first floor listening room pays homage to the intimate jazz cafés and vinyl bars found in Tokyo since the 1950s.
The stylish but comfortable lounge is a workspace by day and chic bar by night, seeing an impressive sound system based around the MB2SE speakers taking centre stage – one of the best transducers ever made to convey emotion through music. Designed by Grammy-award winning record producer Steve Levine – whose credits include Culture Club, The Beach Boys, and Motörhead – the room is as acoustically perfect as a state of the art recording studio. It will be used to provide the best possible experience for a curated musical programme that includes weekly ‘selector’ sessions showcasing the exploratory side of a DJ’s record collection, album listening parties, artist takeovers, radio broadcasts and ‘in conversation’ Q&As.
With the original, long-hidden arch window overlooking Oldham Street restored to its former glory, the second floor is home to a comfortable, stylish creative space and lounge, echoing that of a members club without the membership fee.
