The new and innovative space, gathering three functional  - yet distinctive – complementary areas, is integrated in a recent renovated building. All combined - sushi restaurant, bar and lounge – maintain a singular, orientated philosophy, becoming a reference on space, lightning effects and ambiance.

The space includes three floors elevated from the street level. The entrance, made through a staircase, synthesizes all ambiances one can find in each area inside. The staircase symbolizes Gull’s brand, where the access to the lounge, bar and restaurant is made at the end of it.
