Design and installation firm RDA injects new life into Wembley's SSE Arena

A brand new refurbished restaurant and accompanying VIP lounge are now open at The SSE Arena, Wembley.

RDA, one of the UK’s top design and installation companies were appointed by sports and hospitality caterer Levy UK to transform the existing space, creating a restaurant and lounge with views of Arena Square.

The 200 capacity Empire Bar & Grill and 50 capacity Empire Lounge both incorporate an art deco concept, reflecting on the arena’s history.

Nick Bradley, director at RDA, said: “It has been a privilege to work on a building as iconic as The SSE Arena, Wembley and bring some of its history back to life through design.

“The interior scheme of the Empire Bar & Grill & Empire Lounge is simple yet elegant, reflecting the building’s architectural style.

“First and foremost, our challenge was to bring the interior look and feel more in line with the casual dining style of a present-day demographic, fitting in with an already great menu offering.

“The result is a space reset in time - a revitalised bar and restaurant which now become a key part of the overall customer experience for any given event at The SSE Arena, Wembley.”
