Clusters of artificial wisteria

"Le Grande Lounge," the artistic and attractive new tea and luncheon rooms, one of the most up-to-date premises of the land in the Dominion, will be opened at 3 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. Situated in the upstairs portion of Everybody's Theatre building, access to the lounge may be gained through the American bar that is being established by the proprietor, Mr C. L. Ferguson, on the ground floor. Patrons may also enter the lounge from the foyer of the theatre. The fitting up of the soda water fountain, which is enclosed within a handsome white marble bar, was being completed this afternoon. Designed on the Spanish Mission style, in keeping with the general architecture of the building, the lounge presents a most attractive garden effect, clusters of artificial wisteria hanging from the trellis work ceiling, while unique and old fashioned pergolas adorn the walls of the lounge with most pleasing effect. The premises were utilised this afternoon for the initial gathering, when a "parcel afternoon" was accorded to Miss Bidell, by Mrs J. L. Davies and Miss Ivy Parker, in view of her approaching wedding to Lieut. Gerrat, of Auckland, a returned soldier wounded at Messines.
