The NY-LON lounge bar by Virgin Atlantic and Delta, The O2’s latest entertainment venue, is now boarding, open seven days a week, midday to midnight. NY-LON brings the best of New York and London style, design, glamour and mixology to London’s O2 wrapped up in the undeniable buzz of checking in to a first class lounge. NY-LON is the ‘turn left’ feeling – sleek, chic and designed to make guests feel like they’re flying high in London.The stylish new lounge bar – the first out-of-airport lounge bar of its kind to open in London –brings together the glamour of international jet-setting with London’s chic bar scene. This aviation-themed lounge, built around a bespoke bar replicating an aircraft engine, is far more than just somewhere to grab a quick pre-concert drink. Open daily from midday to midnight, NY-LON serves light bites and drinks inspired by the airlines’ heritage. Menu highlights include the Brooklyn crab salad and Billingsgate fish pie, which can be enjoyed with a range of cocktails, including the London Vesper and Stateside.
There is even a secret meeting room offering a quiet space for corporate guests or those wanting a private dining experience for up to 16 people, which can be booked by the hour or day. Table reservations in the main bar are also recommended during event days.
“The opening of NY-LON is yet another example of the Virgin Atlantic and Delta partnership doing things differently,” said Reuben Arnold, Virgin Atlantic’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Customer Experience. “London is an iconic city and by bringing a taste of our capital together with one of the Big Apple, we’re sure this will be another winning combination.”
“In New York, we have successfully brought Delta’s famous hospitality from the sky to the ground at the Delta Sky360 Club at Madison Square Garden. Now we’re bringing it across the Atlantic to London with our partner, Virgin Atlantic,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We are raising a glass in celebration today and look forward to doing so with our guests when they step inside.”
NY-LON has capacity for up to 300 people. Members of the airlines’ frequent flyer programmes, Flying Club and SkyMiles, will benefit from a range of discounts and special offers.
