The Rydges Kensington London Open House event was a huge success on a number of levels.
This stylish, contemporary, outpost is located on Gloucester Road in the heart of Kensington and is a short walk away from a number of iconic attractions such as The Natural History Museum, Harrods, Victoria and Albert Museum, Kensington Palace and Hyde Park to name but a few.
The aim of the evening was to welcome Rydges Kensington London’s local neighbours, organisations and like minded professionals to come along, meet, greet, eat, network and learn more about the hotel and what is has to offer the business and leisure traveller.
The Australian theme was consistent throughout the function from the exquisite Australian blooms and floral decorations that greeted guests within the Conference Room, right through to the variety of delicacies on the menu such as mini Australian Burgers and Australian Tropical Tea Shots.
A busy night ensued and guests were treated to a pop-up tasting station that was very popular throughout the event and served the likes of Seared Scallop & Black Pudding, Fillet Steak Tartar, Seared Halibut & Samphire, Lamb Noisette, Mint Jus and Strawberry & Cream Scone Bites.
Tasty canapes such as Grilled Garlic & Prawn Skewers and Potato Cake topped with Smoked Salmon & Chive were also being served which proved to go down well with all the guests on the night.
A drinks bar was serving an infused Australian cocktail as well as some fine Australian wines which were also well received.
A number of guests were taken on a hotel tour which gave them the opportunity to view some of the bedrooms on offer as well as presenting the chance to see The Polo Bar and The Jam Cupboard too.
As the proceedings drew to a close the anticipation and excitement for the prize raffle draw grew stronger.
All guests that attended the soiree had a super chance to win some fantastic prizes such as dinner for two in The Jam Cupboard, an overnight stay in the Kensington Suite for two people including breakfast and a three night stay at Rydges Kensington London’s luxurious sister property DESERT PALM Per Aquum, located in Dubai.
Three lucky winners claimed their prizes on the night and it was evident to see that they were absolutely delighted to have been drawn on the night.
Overall, a fabulous time was had by all and Rydges Kensington London now know their neighbour’s a little better of which they look forward to welcoming guests again soon.
