The Pool

Bar Restaurant

We have a very pretty clear picture of what the perfect night out looks like. It involves lingering with close friends (or intriguing strangers) over a constant flow of food, a journey of inventive dishes from all over the world. When the meal inevitably comes to an end, we want to find ourselves asking where did all the time (and the wine) go?

At The Pool, we embrace this leisurely communal dining experience. We know food and drinks are a key ingredient in stimulating special moments between people. So we envisioned our bar to be a central, inviting space where guests can gather over creative cocktails and global tapas and see where the night leads.
