A fabulous new look is on the Horizon at Bay Hotel & Leisure Centre
The Bay Hotel & Leisure Centre in Kinghorn has completed a major refurbishment of its iconic Horizons Restaurant and Waterfront Lounge.
The new look, completed in less than three months, and designed in house by Director Tommy Wallace, has, as its centrepiece, a stunning T-shaped bar with a “cracked ice” effect glass frontage.
The new bar is complete with glass shelving to display signature drinks, whilst the use of glass is also referenced in a spectacular glass partition separating the bar from the main restaurant, and in two new glass ceiling decorations, displaying leaf designs in vivid orange.
A glass wall now runs along the entire restaurant area, etched with eye catching designs of the three Forth Bridges, visible in the distance. The outside viewing terrace from Horizons can now be accessed through a new door, so that guests can pop outside on a nice summer’s evening to enjoy the expansive views across the Forth to Edinburgh.
Horizons have a new table layout, making the most of its space, to incorporate both larger tables for private parties and groups, alongside more intimate dining.
The impressive makeover involved taking the bar and restaurant area back to bare plaster walls. It has been fully re-decorated, re-floored, and has a new ceiling and lighting fitted. Unique, modern booth seating with solid oak resin tables has been fitted in the Waterfront Lounge area for a more rustic dining experience. This part of the room has brick tiled walls, and trendy hanging metal lighting.
For the first time, the Waterfront Lounge has a dedicated Sports Bar and Family area, situated up a short flight of steps leading from the lounge. This cosy area features TV screens, and food can be served. It can also be used for children’s parties, and private gatherings.
Commenting on the refurbishment Tommy Wallace said: “We are delighted to unveil this amazing new look to Horizons and the Waterfront Lounge. We are really pleased with it, and are happy to say that there has already been a great response to it from customers old and new – they all love what we have done with the space to give it this fantastic fresh appeal.”
“The new glass bar is already attracting a lot of attention,” he added. “The room has the presence to take something of this scale. When we complete a refurbishment anywhere in the business, we do it to last a good few years, so quality materials and the overall finish is very important.”
“As the business enters its fourth generation,” added Tommy, “we constantly have to listen to what our customers ask for. Dining out has changed so our restaurant and bar is even more multi-functional than it was before, able to effortlessly cater for the backbone of our business, the family market, along with groups looking for a private dining experience.”
Tommy Wallace finished by saying it had been a good few months for the Bay Hotel & Leisure Centre with the Hotel recently achieving its 4 star VisitScotland rating, the only hotel in the Kirkcaldy area to achieve this, and also picking up a Taste of Scotland awards for its wide ranging menu choices showcasing local produce.
