Around 100 guests, including existing clients as well as a number of locally based London businesses, were delighted to discover the re-vamped venue in the heart of the capital. The launch party included aristocratic entertainment in honour of the grand Georgian surroundings, with an opulent Champagne reception held in the Regent and Tavistock rooms, welcome speeches from the 17 Portland Place team, and musical entertainment from a Jazz band.
Celebrations went on into the evening as the party continued in the lower-ground floor ‘caved’ event space, where actors from The Natural Theatre Company performed amongst the revellers whilst bespoke Portland Place Cocktails and a fruity Portland Punch flowed freely. There was also a magician on-hand to wow the crowd.
Nick Grimaldi, General Manger at 17 Portland Place commented; “We were thrilled to celebrate the re-launch of 17 Portland Place with a party, and to welcome existing and future clients through the doors. The addition of 17 further meeting rooms increases our presence in the capital and will make a fabulous addition to our portfolio of rooms at De Vere Venue’s West One, just a stones throw away.’’
