For the first time in 16 months, we held an in-person event and it felt AMAZING!!! It was incredible being back in the same room as our members and experiencing the buzz of an event again we have truly missed the feeling that live in-person events provide.
We were hosted by the amazing team at The Mayfair Townhouse which is the latest hotel opening for the Iconic Hotel Group. The Townhouse truly fits in with the family and provides the unique and personalised experience that you expect when visiting a hotel within this group. The Townhouse could not be positioned better, bang in the middle of Mayfair less than a 5 minute walk from Green Park station, a short stroll to Green Park to enjoy picnics and walks, the shopping district of Mayfair and surrounded by amazing restaurants to incorporate into your event/stay at the Townhouse.
The Townhouse is stunning with nods to the history of the venue but all with a modern twist. The bedrooms are stunning particularly the Garden Suites which have private patios and we love that all rooms have complimentary mini bars and delicious welcome snacks! As you enter the Townhouse you are met by the stunning Dandy Bar which is perfect for small drinks receptions or to catch up with colleagues/friends over a cocktail created by the mixologist team.
We kicked off the evening with a much-welcomed glass of champagne in the Dandy Bar, where we all caught up with each other and expressed our excitement of being back together. After a tour of the bedrooms, we headed downstairs to where the meeting spaces are which includes two larger rooms which can be used together for a small conference with a separate area for networking. There is also a private meeting room, with a fabulous screen hidden magically by a mirror, for up to 10 people and the stunning Den which is a semi-private dining space which is where we enjoyed drinks, canapés, and bowl food. The canapés and bowl food were certainly enjoyed by us all – after 16 months of not sampling any, we were all overjoyed to taste them again!
The entire team at the Mayfair Townhouse was so welcoming and provided us with outstanding service and made us feel so special, not only was it the return of in-person events but it was also our 6th birthday!!! The team provided us with a stunning birthday cake, all our guests left with cupcakes and a present from the hotel; and not only was it our birthday but it was also Bastille Day in France so we had a French themed birthday party, we loved it!!
