We are more than happy to accommodate live dance bands. Our entertainment partners at Fullcircle would be delighted to suggest entertainment options for your event.

The venue is served by a large goods lift (3.2m x 1.6m) which delivers direct access to the 42nd floor from the building’s loading bay.
