Hyatt Regency Birmingham

As part of a massive refurbishment project worth more than £6 million, the Hyatt Regency created a tavern-style bistro called Gentleman & Scholar. The retro-style pub, featuring parquet tiling and original art work, needed to be homely and comforting. This atmosphere was created with an Optimyst fire, featuring a realistic flame, smoke and crackle effect , positioned in the middle of the room.

“As a luxury hotel, it is important that our facilities are cutting edge and that is why the flame effect on the Optimyst was such a key seller for me. We’ve seen so many of our guests come up to the flame to check if it is real!”

Alexander Eversberg, Food and Beverage, Manager, Hyatt Regency Birmingham
