This is what it looks like inside the swanky BA business lounge in Sandton, where designer tapas is paired with single malts
- We went to check out the Sandton business lounge of ComAir, operators of British Airways and Kulula.
- It now features a restaurant called 'The Course at SLOW in the City,' offering designer tapas that are individually paired with single malts.
- That is on top of the library, vertical garden, coffee shop, meeting rooms, lockers and shower facilities.
The SLOW in the City lounge in Sandton, Johannesburg, has facilities that rival those of the most exclusive country clubs. Now ComAir, which operates British Airways and Kulula, has stepped it up with a new gourmet restaurant, "The Course at SLOW in the City".
Business Insider South Africa went to check out the urban business lounge and nibble on the new restaurant's gourmet offering — this is what we discovered.
The urban business lounge is a replica of the company's SLOW airport lounges found at Lanseria, OR Tambo, Cape Town and King Shaka airports, just in a business district – with meeting rooms, a library, bistro, vertical garden, coffee shop, lockers, shower facilities and even offers spaces to host events in.
The Course at SLOW in the City
"The Course at SLOW in the City" is an expansion of the business club's offering. The restaurant adds to the bistro and coffee shop on premises.
"Chefs and mixologists have created a menu to mirror the diverse environment The Course finds itself in, where local ingredients are showcased alongside global flavour trends from the very first bite," says the airline on the menu.
Business Insider SA went through the extensive choice of tapas-style plates, sampling the full sit-down menu which spans a selection of prime beef cuts, seafood and bistro style dishes, each paired with a unique signature cocktails — all made using Glenfiddich whisky, this quarter's single malt of choice.
Some additional and delectable dishes
Accomplished Mixologist with Molecular Bars, Evert de Jong who refined the cocktail menu for The Course, says “we [The Course] have worked with the resident chefs to prepare house-made ingredients that are fresh and full of flavour. This has allowed us to create a truly signature menu, one that offers an invigorating look at classic cocktails, but also offers one-of-a-kind cocktails that are completely unique to the restaurant.”
