In its private life, it’s for hire as a discreet space, with independent entrance, perfectly suited to get a max of 20 round the table or 35 hobnobbing with glass in hand.
And then there’s its more outgoing side. Clever design means that when in the public eye, the three oversized, handcrafted tables are either laptop ready or can be transformed at sunset, for a nifty game of Ping Pong. This is the place to kick back in one of the bespoke armchairs or ponder the next chess move, while nibbling light bites or sipping on cocktails, prepared by skilled mixologists.
Meeting savvy and socially adept in equal measure, The Games Room is the ultimate people pleaser. Extra comfy seating, superior technology and contemporary elements all combine to challenge those stuffy private room preconceptions. Independent on the one hand, or totally up for mingling on the other, it shares the floor with The Register Club’s sleek bar, tucked between a swanky lounge and intimate snug.
High ceilinged and decorated in a deep dusky blue, the Games Room has quite rightly retained original features and thrown in plenty of contemporary touches. The real beauty is that it’s a totally movable feast – anything that’s not screwed down or nailed can be shuffled around to suit a multitude of room arrangements. And if 9 to 5 doesn’t suit, then luckily the Games Room is open from morning until late night.
