The NY-LON lounge bar by Virgin Atlantic and Delta, the O2’s latest eating establishment has opened to the public for the first time today. It is an attractive alternative to the ‘franchise’ type outlets available at the popular North Greenwich venue. (See BTNews 20 July 2015).
“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.”
The 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 beverages inspired by the airlines’ heritage. Menu highlights include Brooklyn crab salad and Billingsgate fish pie, which can be enjoyed with a range of cocktails.
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.
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. www.ny-lon.co.uk
