Their owners are inside the adjacent building, a "luxury entertainment centre" as it styles itself. Here, men with eye masks doze after a night’s carousing. They lie on rows of BarcaLoungers with built-in cable tuned to HBO or Korean drama. Upstairs, in the private rooms, a complicated menu details the services on offer. Below, in the basement, a spa ensures that everyone can head straight back to the office, clean-shaven.
