The new Ambar at ODEON Swiss Cottage, north London, has arisen from the £3 million restoration of the 1937 ODEON cinema. This is a bar with a hidden heritage. Back in the 1930s it was the cinema's handsome palm court bar, which then lay concealed for years when the space was used as a screen. The radiantly transformed Ambar is plush and spacious. Contemporary touches of deco glamour and bespoke seating to sink into create the sense of a stylish liner lounge. Ambar welcomes ODEON film-goers and everyone alike to this buzzy new neighbourhood landmark.
