Olympic Bar Watch | Omega House

Olympic Bar Watch | Omega House

A peek inside Omega's exclusive Olympic members' club in Soho.

--

Set in The House of St Barnabas, a large Georgian town house just off Soho Square, Omega House has been designed as a sanctuary amidst the general host city madness for the two weeks of the Games.

Each room has a different theme, from the Seamaster Lounge (above) with giant waterfall effect screen (which can be switched over to the badminton heats whenever necessary) and a supersized fishtank set within a specially designed bookcase, to the Hour Vision Atelier (below) which has more of a traditional gentlemen's club feel.

The Entrance Hall (below) even features a bespoke installation of a diver suspended alongside the staircase, designed by artists Wootton & Dawe to be constantly in motion.

Perhaps best of all though is The Secret Garden (below) which has been given a major overhaul to create the ultimate viewing and lounging area that works as well for daytime meetings as evening drinks.

Timber deck, curved seating and a giant screen showing live footage - all in one of the biggest outdoor courtyards in the West End.

Outside of the Olympic Park itself, it might just be the best place in town to watch the action.
