Traveling can be a hassle—long lines, intense security, crying babies, and heavy luggage are just a few items on the list. Sometimes it is necessary to escape airport reality even if just for a little bit. Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is providing this very experience at participating airports.
At Virgin Clubhouses in Heathrow, JFK, Newark, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, travelers can be transported through a virtual reality experience to a high-end, high-quality bar in one of the other cities. Who can say no to a delicious cocktail from a beautiful bar to relax from the airport experience?
When the customer puts on the virtual reality goggles after they order their delicious drink, they are immediately transported to their chosen bar. Mark Murphy, Virgin Atlantic’s manager of Clubhouse food and beverages, filmed the high-definition 360-degree videos of the sophisticated bars for the immersive experience. In the goggles, the customer will experience the detailed visuals of retro bar of Dandelyan in London or tropical themed bar, Smuggler’s Cove in San Francisco.
