Titanic's Veranda Café (Palm Court) Return to Diagram


The Veranda Café, (above) also called "the Palm Court," was actually divided into 2 separate rooms on each side of the ship. The rooms were aft on A-deck behind the 1st class smoking room.

The Veranda Café, like the Parisian Café was a popular place to go to among the younger first class passengers. It served light meals and drinks and had live ivy growing on trellises around the room. The furniture was white whicker, it had a white and green tile floor, and large windows (see below) facing the ocean.


 "The rooms were light and airy and had large windows looking out to sea. The rooms shared a pantry with the smoke room forward allowing for light refreshments. The room had beautiful trellised decor and had cane furniture. The port side cafe was considered the "smoking side" because of the revolving doors leading to the smoke room. The starboard side was frequently deserted and was used as an unofficial play room for the first class children. Both rooms had sliding doors leading onto the aft promenade, the doors had the same design as the windows."
