The scheme consists of a restaurant and kitchen facilities at ground floor with the double height space at first floor level being used for the nightclub and bar. A central courtyard has been opened up for restaurant use and the total capacity approved for the public entertainments license is for over 1,000 people.

A separate cocktail members bar has been created for smaller parties and the entire building has clear acoustically treated windows to allow the building to benefit from natural daylight and maintain flexibility for use.
