An in­ter­ac­tive lounge spot in­spired by New York’s back al­leys.

While a white tiger print up­hol­stery sounds like a kitschy pick, its look fits right in with Lulu’s Lounge. The nightlife venue chan­nels the per­son­al­ity of Lulu, the fic­tional owner of this es­tab­lish­ment, and cre­ates an in­trigu­ing space for vis­i­tors to hang out.

“She’s a tacky go-go dancer who as­pires to be high class, so we went with bold tiger prints, vin­tage chester­fields and brass fin­ishes. It brings a 1960s’ speakeasy at­mos­phere to the space,” says Bernard John­son of in­te­rior de­sign firm EDG.

There’s a lot to dis­cover about the wildly fun yet com­plex Lulu, and the real-life founders of the lounge, Joshua and Sarissa Schwartz, have left prover­bial bread­crumbs around the place for you to piece Lulu’s life story to­gether. “Ev­ery fur­ni­ture and art­work se­lected tells a story, and are to be ex­plored by guests through­out their time here,” says Bernard.

Par­ty­go­ers will en­ter a small vestibule be­fore step­ping into the colour­ful yet in­ti­mate lounge room. There’s a leop­ard-print coat hang­ing by the door, lamp­shades wrapped in red feather boas, bondage-es­que masks, and even news­pa­per clip­pings of a cer­tain ar­rest.

Per­haps the most telling of Lulu’s mys­te­ri­ous back­ground are the graf­fiti walls by in­ter­na­tional street and tat­too artist Mis­tra Crowe. Cre­ated us­ing UV paint, the art­works sub­tly change as the night pro­gresses; a black light re­veals Lulu’s de­face­ment of (and ill feel­ings to­wards) cer­tain high-so­ci­ety fig­ures. With play­ful twists on clas­sic cock­tails and a post-disco playlist, Lulu’s Lounge prom­ises you a great night out. CHECK OUT LULU’S LOUNGE AT PAN PA­CIFIC HO­TEL, 7 RAF­FLES BOULE­VARD, WWW.

LEFT The own­ers wanted a de­par­ture from the usual stro­belight mega-club ex­pe­ri­ence, so they cre­ated lit­tle en­claves through­out the space, dec­o­rat­ing them with eclec­tic ac­ces­sories and trin­kets.

LEFT All the in­te­ri­ors are cus­tomised, from the throw pil­lows to the lounge chairs. Bernard adds that the UV-painted art­works of­fer a level of con­stant evo­lu­tion to the space.

ABOVE Ev­ery Wed­nes­day, guests can en­joy live jazz per­for­mances, an­i­mated mu­si­cal num­bers, and com­pli­men­tary canapes at the bar.
