Silk Road



Set in the 1930s building of the Shakespeare Hotel, Silk Road is influenced by the Chinese silk trade and the route that once connected Asia with the Mediterranean and Europe. Walking through the golden doors you are transported to a decadent European paradise, with floating crystal chandeliers, yards of lavish silk and eight bars spread across the three floors.

The Floors:-

Ground Floor

Once you're through the main door of the building, you'll bear witness to the Venetian bar area, a dance floor, a 20 seat Mediterranean tapas table and two private rooms available for hire.

Chop Shop Restaurant: An ideal spot amongst the bars and dance floor to order tasty treats from the Chinese cuisine menu.

St George Wine and Cheese Room: Catering for groups of 25-40 people it is reminiscent of a traditional cigar lounge, with boutique wines and imported cheeses.

Dynasty Room: Suitable for smaller gatherings of up to 20 people, the extravgant gold and red decor is resemblant of the ancient Chinese empire. Check out the food menu for more information.
