The most exclusive VIP experience at Manchester’s highly anticipated music and entertainment arena, Co-op Live, is The Bentley Record Room. Designed by the automotive legends behind the Bentley Motors Design Team, this exclusive hospitality club is a dedicated space for artists and their fans. Sporting low-carbon Beluga-leather seating and expertly crafted Bentley Home furniture, the intimate lounge replicates the custom finishes and luxurious designs that make their cars some of the most sought-after in the world. With Co-op Live expected to open sometime in 2023, Luxe members will have the chance to experience “an environment that is as luxurious and cosseting as the interior of a Bentley”.
If you haven’t heard about Co-op Live, its a collaboration between Oak View Group (OVG), City Football Group (CFG), Harry Styles (yes, that Harry Styles), and Co-op to create “the biggest and best arena in the UK.” Already benefiting from a £365m private investment injection, Co-op Live is tipped to become a world premier music and entertainment venue. And situated right next to the performers’ Green Room will be The Bentley Record Room.
The 100-capacity club with “very limited” membership will provide music fans with the ultimate experience in luxury and intimacy, plus all the trimmings. Guests will enjoy high-end dining options, a private host and waiter service, allocated parking, and VIP entry to the arena.
And to sweeten the pot even further, Luxe members will have access to the space before, during, and after Co-op Live events and first dibs on the best tickets to live acts, alongside a litany of exciting special events in The Bentley Record Room.
As for what to expect once you’re inside, the Bentley Design Team has done their utmost to recreate the unique finishes and designs, painstakingly replicating its lavish interiors for the Record Room. Done in collaboration with Luxury Living Group, the area will include low-carbon Beluga leather chairs and expertly produced Bentley Home furniture.
“We are delighted to offer music lovers a dedicated Bentley Place”, said Christoph Hohmann, Global Head of Brand Communications at Bentley Motors. “An environment that is as luxurious and cosseting as the interior of a Bentley – allowing them to experience the craftsmanship, beauty and luxury that you can find in each one of our cars but on a much larger and totally immersive scale.”
The President of OVG International, Sam Piccione, also shared his excitement over the Bentley bromance. “Bentley is number one in British luxury, so it’s the exemplar brand to name this unique room,” Sam remarked. “As the UK’s first private luxe members’ club inside an arena, The Bentley Record Room will put Manchester ahead of anywhere else, including London, for unrivalled quality entertainment. There’s no doubt it will be one of the best and most lavish places to enjoy live events anywhere in the world.”
