We are delighted to report that we have made an application for Full Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for alterations and improvements to the Polo Bar at the Hurlingham Club.
The Polo Bar faces west towards the setting sun with French doors in a coherent red-brick facade, opening onto a terrace. It encompasses a small beer cellar, a bar counter and seating area with a coffered ceiling, male and female lavatories and a cloak room. The flat roof has roof-lights, giving natural light to the lavatories, cloak room and bar area. It has a steel framed structure of castellated beams, supported on steel columns. Although the single-storey Polo-Bar is within the curtilage of the Clubhouse, Listed Grade II*, the infill is post-1948 and, therefore, not Listed.
The proposed interior modifications to the Polo Bar involve creating a new commercial kitchen, reconfiguring male and female WC’s and creating 2 new cloak rooms.
The existing bar counter will be widened with a new granite worktop and the back-bar fittings restored and extended to provide additional storage.
New roof plant will also be positioned on the existing roof to support the introduction of the professional kitchen equipment that is to be made to order.
