Award-winning London architects, Wilsdon Design Associates have designed the new Catch Champagne Bar & Lounge. Wilsdon Design Associates were largely responsible for the dramatic renovation of Andaz Liverpool Street in 2007, when the hotel was transformed from the former 19th century Great Eastern Hotel to the world’s first Andaz property. The team at Wilsdon Design Associates are well qualified to deliver another timeless classic with the launch of Catch Champagne Bar & Lounge, working in perfect harmony with the building’s wider aesthetic code.
Stuart Wilsdon, CEO of Wilsdon Design Associates says of the collaboration, “Working on the major refurbishment of what is now Andaz Liverpool Street, we already felt incredibly familiar to this hotel. We understand the building’s delicate balancing act of contemporary and tradition; by mixing contemporary crispness with antique furnishing and earthier dark warm tones, we have looked to achieve this once again with the exciting launch of the new Catch Champagne Bar & Lounge.”
Catch Champagne Bar & Lounge is as an intimate and stylish venue, offering a discreet fireplace gently lit by two large chandeliers and a Charcuterie table as a centre-piece, with a generous communal table for guests to sip, eat, relax and unwind at. Surrounded by seating space for thirty, with customised tables and bespoke furnishings selected by Stuart and his team, the look is innovative and the feel inviting.
Arnaud de Saint-Exupéry, General Manager of Andaz Liverpool Street hotel, says, “We are so delighted to announce this new exciting addition to our hotel. It fills the perfect gap between our many different outlets and acts as a sophisticated haven for people out and about in the East End and the City. Great for meetings at any time of the day, we envision Catch Champagne Bar & Lounge as the ideal place for laid-back evening drinks and nibbles - all in an elegant and beautifully designed setting.”
