The Sunset Lounge

…offers inspirational views of rolling hills of the Portuguese countryside. There’s crazy technology hidden in this room that allows bands to record from any part of the room at the push of a button. Every section also has great headphones to monitor and record with excellent audio effects.

The Bassment

This room has complete audio isolation, such that a band can let those creative juices flow into the night. The drummer can both hear and see everything that’s being played upstairs. Underfloor heating on soft carpet is a beautiful experience.
