Recognising that the high-end client is looking for something new, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment asked DesignAgency to re-envision the space, which is located in a private zone behind the arena seating, into a premium retreat where members can enjoy a hospitality experience that extends well beyond the game or culture of the event itself.
With the new lounge, the design team was challenged to create a range of dining experiences that take advantage of the space’s elongated proportions and its varying ceiling heights, and also to create a variety of spaces that both encourage opportunities for socialising and for privacy as desired.
Guests are immersed in a warm and welcoming atmosphere defined by richly coloured materials, soft ambient lighting and signature Canadian art. The new central bar and lounge area is an environment synonymous with deluxe hospitality, where thoughtfully curated spaces, sensuous materials and beautiful lighting form the backdrop for premium culinary excellence.
Continuing through the room, the space transitions from a lounge to a dining area. Adding to this refined atmosphere are sparkling-brass accents and details, walnut tabletops and our warm wood Versailles panel flooring, fluted glass privacy screens, plush, dove-grey leather chairs and curved booths upholstered in tufted burgundy leather.
Acting as a second entrance, a central wine display corridor defined by smoked glass, warm brass and walnut detailing creates a truly immersive and unique experience.
A series of wood panelled private dining rooms each with domestic proportions, art and custom lighting, enable guests to entertain in their own inner sanctum.
