Promoting “next generation hospitality” Kanarie Club provides it all under one roof, allowing you to eat, work, drink and dance in the same space from morning until night.  The venue’s history shines through it’s playful facelift from Studio Modijefsky, whilst the aforementioned pool needs no swimwear preparations – it’s shallow waters mean you can wade and sample Kanarie Club’s best cocktails at the same time.
