Arsenal Diamond Club
'What a privilege to create the unique Diamond Club restaurant in one of the world's greatest football stadiums! I believe that sourcing the best ingredients and combining them with creativity and imagination is at the heart of great cuisine, and this is our ethos in the Diamond Club at Arsenal.'
The imposing Emirates Stadium has become a landmark piece of modern architecture dominating the north London skyline. One of the most technologically advanced arenas in football, the majestic Emirates Stadium provides a stage benefitting Arsenal’s ambition to become one of the world’s greatest clubs.
The Diamond Club is one of the areas in Emirates Stadium which reflects the quality, craftsmanship and tradition of Archibald Leitch’s Highbury Marble Halls. The vision for the Diamond Club is to capture and contemporise Highbury’s art deco feel in this unique space within Emirates Stadium. The palette of materials used throughout the Club harks back to those 1930’s glory days. Solid dark walnut panelling with inlayed oak marquetry, bronze metalwork and polished plaster walls are all utilised but with a modern design twist.
