This lobby area becomes a dedicated bar and lounge around 10:00PM. The Thompson Hotel Lobby Bar features a large bar at the back, and several booths located around the main dance floor area.

THE THOMPSON HOTEL LOBBY BAR CLUB REVIEW
As soon as you walk into Thompson Hotel, the lounge and bar is located directly to the right. Unlike most venues in this area this is much more of a chill lounge and not a super noisy club. In fact, you’ll notice the majority of the crowd is just chilling and socializing near the bar and a handful of people either turning up and dancing at their booth with bottles, or in the centre which is technically a dance floor. This venue is moreso targeted toward professionals and has a bit of a mature vibe, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t also a mix of young professionals here too. This venue rarely hits capacity and doesn’t usually have a line that is all that bad. It’s also very rare that the lounge gets shoulder to shoulder packed, but it does tend to get busy around 12:00-1:00AM, which is also it’s peak time. The Thompson Hotel Lobby Bar tends to play a nice mix of Chill Lounge House, UK Garage, and the occasional Hip-Hop track. Again, this crowd is very chill and friendly so this is a good spot to go if you’re not looking for a super demanding night out. Overally we appreciate this venue for what it offers and think it’s a great place visit to get drinks with a group of friends and talk.
- Super chill / relaxed vibe and crowd
- A great mix of chill House Music if that’s your taste

- Sometimes this venue can be really dead and never gets busy or pops off the entire night
- Arrive anytime between 11:00PM and 12:00AM (midnight)
- The popularity of this lounge varies from night to night”
