The Lawn Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Lawn (previously branded as ‘The Gatsby Club’) is a contemporary glass-fronted marquee structure situated opposite the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The Lawn is an official hospitality facility offering several package options, with the catering overseen by legendary Michelin-starred Chefs, Michel Roux Jr, and daughter Emily Roux.

Location

The Lawn facility is situated on the grounds of Wimbledon Cricket Club, which is directly opposite the main entrance of the All England Club, on Church Road. It is only a 5-minute walk to either Gate 4 or Gate 5. Golf Buggies are provided to reduce this time to less than a minute.

Facility/Décor

The Lawn is a huge glass-fronted facility, with natural light streaming through. In some areas, it resembles a smart modern airport departure lounge with a very tall canvas ceiling, albeit it is an attractive space. There is a Mezzanine Level, which has a cosier feel. There is a keen attention to detail with linen drapes and a soft pastel colour scheme. The outside garden area is pleasant; however, it is enclosed by 20ft high screens that define the space, and there are no views except the rear of the glass-fronted structure. The garden area features a novel ‘foot stream’, lounge garden furniture and a bar.

Private Tables & Suites

Private tables are available for even numbers of 2-12 guests (no odd bookings can be made).

Admission

You have the choice of booking this facility with either official Centre Court or No.1 Court tickets. However, the allocated seats are not Debenture Seats (which are acknowledged as the best corporate seats available on Centre Court). You can upgrade to Debenture seats for an additional cost.

Catering

Catering consists of a three-course à la carte luncheon, designed by the Roux dynasty. There are also Seafood & Patisserie counters. Traditional Wimbledon Afternoon Tea consists of cakes, scones, and pastries, as well as Strawberries and Cream.

Guests enjoying hospitality

Drinks

The complimentary bar features Chilled Champagne and a choice of specially selected wines and beers. There are also cocktails mixed and served by the mixologists. The facility also features a Whisky and Cigar bar.

Service

There is a personal hostess service to attend to drinks, which enhances service greatly.

Entertainment

There are no celebrity speakers or appearances in this facility.

Audio-Visual

There are ample TV monitors to allow you to keep track of the tennis, including a giant TV screen in the garden area.

Car Parking

Car park passes are allocated on a 1:4 basis, and parking is conveniently outside the facility.

Extras

Programmes are available for guests. There is also live music played at various times during the day to add to the ambience.
