Available at Whiteleys, London, The Lounge is for over 18s only.

Visit The Lounge and enjoy Fine Food and Film in the most exclusive and luxurious of settings. Combining an exclusive bar area serving food and drinks, and small, intimate screens where you can order food delivered straight to your seat, The Lounge is grown-up cinema at its best.

Your personal experience begins as you walk through the door and enter our luxury bar area. You can choose to eat there or in the screen - your food will then be discreetly delivered to your seat whenever you'd like it, whether that's during the trailers or half way through the film. Of course if you need a top up, the waiters are on call throughout the film and will be more than happy to oblige, just press the button on your armrest and they will be there to look after your needs.

With no more than 50 seats, each of which reclines at the touch of a button and has double the leg room of a normal cinema seat, the screens offer an intimate atmosphere. Every screen is equipped with the highest quality state of the art sound and projection, offering you the best possible film viewing experience.

Each screen is designed so that it has the optimum space and lighting to ensure that our highly trained waiters can deliver your food discreetly to your seat side table with minimal interruption to the film. Each table has an innovative layer of sound proof material so that minimal noise is made when your food is delivered. Every detail has been carefully considered; even the waiters' uniforms and the plates are black to minimise the distraction from your film.

Eat & Drink

The Lounge - Menu
Lounge Food
Cocktails at the Lounge

Our exclusive A la Carte Menu can be ordered from your seat or in the bar - you choose.

At the heart of The Lounge experience is our exclusive food and drink available in the bar or brought directly to your seats.

Food is hand prepared from the freshest ingredients in the full working restaurant kitchen. An exclusive menu is delivered by our service staff directly to your seat and offers mouth watering food specially designed to eat with one hand: meals like lamb kebab and beef slider, fancy fish & chips and even specialty hot dogs as well as desserts like sticky toffee pudding.

The menu changes frequently with the seasons and for special events so there is always something new and delicious to try.

The fully trained bar staff will prepare you a treat from a range of delicious cocktails and there is also an extensive range of drinks from fine wines and champagnes to beers, spirits and soft drinks for you to enjoy either at the bar or at your seat.
