The lounge features Murano hand-blown glass screens made up of 4,500 glass balls and a chandelier made of 140 larger Murano glass spheres created by New York artist Suzan Etkins. The room also features a huge hand-cast glass champagne bowl with Pommery Champagnes. The bar has a 1940s replica brass door, custom-made metals floors, lucite tables and chairs and cream leather banquettes of soft Scottish leather contrasting with chocolate velvet mohair seating. If you get tipsy the hotel hotels has a variety of temptingly luxurious places to crash.
