THE LOOK AND FEEL

The sleek, black box of a building tells you immediately that there is no history to be found within its walls. Instead, you'll find clean lines, brightly-coloured upholstery, gleaming floors, neon lights and fun pop art on the walls. The bar has de rigueur bare tungsten bulbs and exposed pipework.

THE FACILITIES

Facilities abound. The gym is open 24 hours a day and has all the latest gadgets and equipment, a spin studio, and a full range of classes; there's also a swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. The business centre provides a co-working space. Service is from an enthusiastic young team.
