October & November Upgrades: New carpets and a new bar in JLT!

In the meantime, we’ve put some final touches and decorations on the new bar and the official unveiling is tonight, when Healey’s Terrace reopens for the autumn and winter season. Check our Facebook or Google+ pages for pictures of the bar in action.
