We've announced the opening of the world’s best airport bar – the Grey Goose Loft at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at London Heathrow. It’s the perfect partnership, with Grey Goose, the World's Best Tasting Vodka, and the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse hailed as the world’s best airport lounge.

Our gorgeous new bar is located on the upper deck of the Clubhouse and will offer our Upper Class passengers a tailor-made experience and a level of service which until now could only be appreciated in the top cocktail bars in the world.

The cocktails

On arriving, you'll be welcomed with a freshly prepared amuse-bouche to whet your appetite. The Loft’s team of professional mixologists from some of London’s best bars will then set about creating a bespoke Grey Goose cocktail to suit your own particular taste preferences, and if you'd like to continue your cocktail odyssey at your destination, the team will happily give their personal bar recommendations for wherever you're travelling.

Design

While the interior of the Grey Goose Loft is perfectly in keeping with the unique style of the Clubhouse, it makes a statement all of its own. The Grey Goose Loft is a celebration of the best in new design with individual items of furniture created by some of Europe’s most talented young designers, including a UK premiere for the Mollis lounge chair, by Swedish design duo, Jonas Nordgren and Artur Moustafa of RVW.

Setting the mood

Integrated into the design of the bar itself is a DJ booth where guest DJs will set the mood to accompany the incredible cocktails on offer.

Our Clubhouse at Heathrow has an established reputation for providing the ultimate pre-flight experience with an array of exciting and unique areas. Passengers can enjoy a stylish haircut at the Bumble and bumble salon; relax in the spa pool or sauna; choose from a range of treatments at the Cowshed Spa; enjoy a game of pool in the Den or choose from the extensive Brasserie menu. And over the coming months our Upper Class passengers can look forward to a series of special events being held in the Grey Goose Loft as Grey Goose celebrates its partnerships with the world’s best in art, music, fashion and film.

The Grey Goose Loft at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is open to all Upper Class passengers and Gold Card holders with cocktails served daily from 4.00pm.
