Hotel Equatorial in Ho Chi Minh City last month added a lobby lounge with premium services.
Flo Lobby Lounge at 242 Tran Binh Trong Street combines contemporary interior design and premier drink services, with live musical performance.
It uses the lotus as a design concept, and it is featured on the walls and carpets in various colors and textures.
Warm tones and soft fabric sofas blend together with tall French windows, glass ceiling, and crystal ball shades to make for a tranquil feeling.
The overall lounge's ambience benefits from the clever use of soft lighting and ambient music.
Flo can seat 60 people, in addition to a live music stage, curvy bar area equipped with a glass cabinet full of outstanding wines from around the world.
The bar also offers a traditional afternoon tea from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. with a selection of famous Ronnefeldt teas from Germany as well as canapés.
For the first two months Flo will present nightly performances by the European band Esther Flatters and The Jazz Hats which will play light jazz six days a week from 9 p.m.
