There is storage in drawers and a cabinet inside the bar, as well as in drawers under the settees and under the steps at each door.
The Galley is to port and also benefits from the brightness of the large windows in the main cabin area. The window above the galley counter slides open to allow ample ventilation while cooking. Covers for both the sink and stove extend counter space. When flipped over, the sink covers reveal cutting boards on their opposite sides.
