on behalf of Tigerlily and Lulu
Lulu is best known as Edinburgh’s hot night spot offering from the city’s boutique hotel, bar and restaurant Tigerlily. However, the hip basement hangout is also a design and technology extravaganza which is proving to be as exciting a corporate event spot as it is a night owl’s hangout. Through its unique features, Tigerlily has pioneered the ‘boardroom to dancefloor’ concept with Lulu.
Lulu offers a range of truly unusual and thrilling features, such as underfloor lighting and the stunning crystal wall. In addition, customers benefit from a state-of-the-art communications system throughout Tigerlily.
Engineers faced the challenge of installing miles of cable while remaining sensitive to the heritage of the original five-storey Georgian townhouse. The venue now boasts premium wireless, broadband, phone and computer capabilities, so customers can connect to internet on their laptops or hand-held PC’s throughout the building.
Lucy Henderson, Marketing Manager for Montpeliers (Edinburgh), the group behind the Tigerlily phenomenon, said: “Lulu provides a feast of cutting-edge design and technology to an events industry hungry for something fresh.
“The lush, decadent look of the interior is complemented by high-tech touches such as our Saturday night fever style under lit dancefloor and sparkling crystal studded walls. In addition, Lulu presents the latest audio-visual equipment to allow the venue to transform into an ultra-hip location for any business event, launch or meeting. Corporate customers can benefit from the technology essential for optimum productivity, and superb design and entertainment features for an enjoyable, team-building company experience.”
The Conde Nast award-winning hotel has accrued a host of awards and rave reviews since its launch in June 2006. Lulu is the latest offering from the award-winning hospitality group Montpeliers, Edinburgh, which has accrued a wealth of success thanks to its design-led approach and its ability to be the first to identify and respond to market needs.
