A new members-only gastropub entitled The Lioness has opened at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The Lioness opened on Saturday ahead of England’s 2-1 defeat to Spain at Wembley. The pub is situated on the north-west side of the stadium and will form part of Club Wembley’s line-up of exclusive match-day experiences.
The Lioness joins the recently-opened Three Lions and One Twenty spaces, along with the Centre Circle member’s lounge, which also launched ahead of the Spain match.
The Lioness has been designed by KSS Design Group in partnership with Design Coalition. It will provide members area seats with stand-out stadium views and feature a gastropub menu, holding a capacity of 1,000 (500 seated).
The space has been decked out with a unique installation of graphic displays, photographs, trophies, models and football memorabilia showcasing great moments from Wembley’s history. The installation and the pub itself will now form part of the Wembley Stadium Tour Experience.
Charlene Nyantekyi, general manager of Club Wembley, said: “We’re really excited to bring The Lioness to Club Wembley especially as its opening coincides with the much talked about return of the England team to the stadium. The Lioness offers our members a less formal approach to matchday hospitality in line with feedback from our existing members for this type of experience. Our attentive team and the interior design ensure a relaxed environment that’s available to all Club Wembley members making it the perfect space to enjoy a pre or post-match pint with friends or colleagues and make meaningful connections.
“We’re committed to the ongoing development of Club Wembley and continue to invest in the experiences members can have, all while enjoying some of the biggest sporting and entertainment events at the stadium. Alongside our more premium Club Wembley offerings such as One Twenty and Bobby Moore, we’re confident that The Lioness will prove as popular as our Three Lions pub situated on the opposite side of the stadium.”
