Meldrum House Country Hotel in Oldmeldrum has unveiled their latest vision – a dome bar experience, the Titan Sky Bar, the only one of its kind in the UK.
It follows an unprecedented year and a half for Meldrum House, when the owners invested in 4 luxury dining domes after the first lockdown, creating one of the most talked-about dining experiences in Aberdeenshire.
Over 14,000 people have dined in the private domes in the 12 months that they have been operating and it has proved to be so successful that the hotel has a waiting list for them at weekends.
The Titan Sky Bar is sticking with the stars and moon theme and has been named after one of the largest moons in the solar system thanks to being more than twice the size of their largest dining dome.
Sitting outside the hotel’s 800-year-old Cave Bar, the Sky Bar measures 10 metres in diameter and has a capacity for up to 40 people at stylish cocktail tables or up to 32 guests as an event space. Wired with a Sonos system, the dome is heated and has air conditioning to combat all weathers.
The uniqueness of the dome means that guests are bathed in natural light all day and then at night, the atmosphere will switch up as the bar will display coloured shooting lights as darkness appears and the stars come out.
Operations Manager Nicola Downie explains; “Titan Sky Bar will complement our dining domes experience. Guests will get a bespoke drinks experience with spectacular views of our iconic manor house, surrounding countryside, and the sky above. We will be theming the bar every season and serving newly curated cocktails, premium spirits, craft beers, and a hand-chosen selection of wine and soft drinks as well as appetisers for guests before or after lunch and dinner.”
