Eurostar has opened the doors to its newly designed Business Premier lounge in Paris Gare du Nord. With business travellers increasingly choosing rail over air, the new lounge offers a stylish, comfortable environment for both working and relaxing.
Sleek new design
The lounge is equipped with complimentary wifi, USB sockets and wireless chargers, making it the perfect place to catch up on work or meet with clients and colleagues. Situated on the top floor of the original 19th century building, and featuring high ceilings, marble fireplaces, a cocktail bar and intimate snug spaces, the lounge captures the spirit of a Parisian apartment.
Introducing the new cocktail bar
For customers looking to unwind at the end of the day, the new cocktail bar is the ultimate destination. Situated at the back of the lounge, the circular black and gold bar, provides an atmospheric space for travellers to sample a selection of cocktails designed by London Cocktail Club exclusively for Eurostar.
Showcasing contemporary art
To enhance the overall experience, the lounge features a range of contemporary art, curated by the Hospital Club in London and showcasing French artists. Travellers can admire the artwork on display which is also on sale for those keen to take a piece of Paris back to London.
Flexible new menu
The new lounge embodies a home-from-home feel, with an open kitchen where guests can help themselves to fresh breakfast, lunch and dinner snacks. To complement the new interiors, the menu has been refreshed with a range of canapés, healthy salads, juices, and hot and cold seasonal dishes, which will be gradually introduced throughout the year.
Michelin star chef and Eurostar Business Premier Culinary Director, Raymond Blanc OBE, has worked closely with the catering team to advise on seasonal dishes that combine the best of British and French cuisine.
Nicolas Petrovic, Chief Executive, Eurostar, said:
“The opening of the new business lounge in Paris is part of a wide-reaching programme of investment in our stations and our service. With its elegant design, calm environment and digital connectivity, the lounge will provide an unrivalled level of style and comfort for our business customers.”
The new lounge is open to Business Premier travellers and Carte Blanche card holders. Eurostar operates daily services to Paris, Brussels and Lille, weekly services to the South of France. A new service between London and Amsterdam will launch in early 2017.
