Velvet takes the place of Corinthia London’s former bar Bassoon, with reimagined interiors by David Collins Studio. Furniture has been re-upholstered in shades of rouge and royal blue. Deep red velvet curtains provide a glamorous feel, alongside new commissioned artwork by Robson Stannard positioned either side of a central marble fireplace and throughout the bar.
For me, Velvet will capture the essence of a mood - the spirit of intimacy, extravagance, and secluded indulgence. It's about a feeling, the discreet excitement through the pleasure of music and cocktails.
