The Employee Lounge is a room that Stanley enters when he takes the right door. The Narrator had planned for Stanley to take this hallway and placed the lounge here in order to justify Stanley's divergence from his story. Once Stanley exits this room, he'll have to choose whether he wants to get back on track or keep walking his own path. The Narrator may make fun of Stanley should he spends too much time in the lounge. The Lounge consists of several blue sofas and armchairs, two coffee tables, a vending machine and some paintings.

Every time you go there The Narrator says something different. He usually lauds the room and Stanley's decision to go there with various hyperboles, but go there repeatedly and he tires of it, simply remarking "It was okay."

Original ModEdit

The Employee Lounge was also present in the original HL2 mod The Stanley Parable, which can be accessed by taking the door on the left, as the Narrator instructs. The room's interior is nearly the same as a cafeteria.
