The establishment of A-Lounge originated from the desire to create a hotspot for A-listers. Yes, the kind of people you encounter in Hollywood, enjoying life in the limelight. These are sophisticated, elegant, trendy people who know what they like and want out of life. A-Lounge is just the place to have important business meetings, breakfast, lunch or dinner. We also have a stage for live entertainment, cash bar facilities and after 10 pm the dance floor is open. All these create the look and feel of a very exclusive nightclub.
A-Lounge was the brainchild of four very different individuals – Jacques Lombard, director of Mrs Mpumalanga and Timeless Productions; Claud Kruger, artistic and successful space planner who has a love of creating gourmet dishes; Hugo Morgado, a project manager in Mozambique and his beautiful wife Nayana, proud owner of Pop Epoch party shop. They all share one amazing vision for one of the fastest growing cities in South Africa.
Mbombela, previously known as Nelspruit, is developing rapidly and with this, our community has developed a taste for the finer things in life. As most of our customers are business people who are always on the go, they have a need to wind down in a relaxed environment.
Claud had a very clear vision for the decor and colour. Blue represents both the sky and the sea and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration and sensitivity. It also symbolizes depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith and intelligence. The colour gold is a cousin to the colours yellow and brown, and also represents illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic and wisdom. Gold is a precious metal that is associated with wealth, grandeur and prosperity, as well as glitz and glamour.
It was also decided to give the establishment a bit of a Gatsby twist as can be seen on the famous A-Lounge hand-stencilled wall… A true masterpiece indeed.
Our food is counted among the best in town and this is thanks to the seasoned chefs and food fundis who are skilled in putting a menu together for functions or events. Claud’s specialities are sliders, tapas and even gourmet samosas.
While he and Nayana make sure everything runs smoothly in the kitchen, Jacques and Hugo ensure that everyone is happy on the floor. Hugo assists with the bar facilities and Jacques specializes in production and entertainment. Together they work like a well-oiled machine to offer a world-class experience to customers.
A-Lounge has many cards up its sleeve for 2019, from exclusive fashion shows to opening a wine boutique and even an art gallery. So put on your finest attire and be spotted wining and dining or dancing the night away among the city’s elite. A-Lounge is the place you want to be seen at.
