About this space

Located just across from our famous Edmond J Safra Fountain Court, this venue offers a blank canvas space featuring beautiful high ceilings and large windows, with a series of open plan, interlinking rooms.

The East Wing offers an abundance of space and natural light, perfect for events including press days and drinks receptions, while proving equally popular with location managers. The East Wing combines ultramodern flourishes with neo-classical lines, conveying a real sense of occasion to your guests.
