The Arts Club, London

The style of the basement in the refurbished Arts Club might be characterised as a 21st century burlesque nightclub.  The finishes are warm and inviting; banquettes surround a central seated area that can be used as a dance floor; candle light and dimmed wall sconces warm the space and reflect in the antique mirrors that face some of the walls and columns.  Red curtains on the spot-lit stage soften the atmosphere and lend a glamorous and theatrical feel to the room.  The ceiling in the room is gold leaf and this burnished golden finish is enhanced by a set of theatrical lights mounted into the set-back created by the two levels of the ceiling.
