Eurostar marks one year since unveiling its state-of-the-art new business lounge in Paris Gare du Nord. Have you been in for a cocktail yet?
For us, it goes without saying that as a business passenger choosing a high speed rail over a plane, results in a seamless journey and the ability to work pre-travel and onboard. However, after recently experiencing the new lounge at Paris Gare du Nord it is safe to say, we will not set foot in an airport when travelling to and from Paris again.
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. Sip on an old fashioned and enjoy a range of contemporary art, curated by the Hospital Club in London, showcasing French artists and if anything takes your fancy, put in a bid as all the art is on sale.
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 stylish 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. Raymond has even designed a bespoke tea exclusively for the lounge created by Tregothnan, Britain’s first and only tea producer.
“Business travellers are looking for flexibility and a variety of food options when they are on the go. From a light snack before boarding the train to something more substantial. The new lounge features a selection of dishes which we hope will satisfy all appetites. All made with high quality sustainable produce.”
Raymond Blanc OBE, Eurostar Business Premier Culinary Director.
