What Client’s Say

The staff at Departure Lounge worked with me to put together a fantastic party to watch The Oscars. With attention to every detail, the Lounge helped me select wines to suit my guests, and put together a menu of hors d’overs that were tasty but not too messy for the beautifully dressed crowd. The staff was attentive and ensured my guests were comfortable and their glasses full. The party was a huge success and is still being talked about months later.
