Hospitality provider Keith Prowse has redesigned The Gatsby Club to bring guests closer to the action by bringing the Wimbledon experience inside the award-winning venue. The exciting new interior will incorporate a colourful new scheme in keeping with the All England Lawn Tennis Club’s theme, ‘Tennis in an English Garden’.
As guests arrive at The Gatsby Club they will be fully immersed in to The Championship’s with intricate detail incorporating tennis racquets into the design, light boxes bringing the garden theme to life and a team of hostesses in show-stopping uniforms provided by Ted Baker. World-renowned chef Albert Roux OBE, who has designed and developed the menus, will be on hand to answer any questions about the three-course à la carte menu. Visitors can also enjoy words from high-profile guest speakers, such as Lindsay Davenport and Pat Cash.
A team of international mixologists from MIX Global will be on hand to serve an exquisite array of cocktails, from the elegant and refreshing ‘Grey Goose Le Fizz’ to bespoke cocktails designed especially for The Gatsby Club, including the ‘Wimbledon Cup’ and the ‘Gatsby Club’ house special, which features fresh raspberry syrup, orange bitters, fresh lemon and Bombay Sapphire Gin. As the afternoon gets into full swing, guests can experience the ‘Ultimate Bombay Sapphire Gin and Tonic Twists’ or have a reimagined G&T to their own specification, including the Earl Grey tea-infused Bombay Sapphire G&Tea.
Liquid nitrogen ice-cream from ‘Lick Me I’m Delicious’ will be presented for a theatrical surprise, making a legendary dining experience. When guests are not in their official courtside seats, TVs throughout The Gatsby Club will be able to keep them up-to-date on the tennis action.
