The Speakeasy themed event included 1930s entertainment from jazz band Jivin Miss Daisy, health and wellness at events tips from inspirational speaker Nikki Cooper from Inner Me as well as a unique food concept, the Taste Bud Challenge.
The Taste Bud Challenge was a back-to-front buffet where no food was what it seemed. Mushroom soup was disguised as coffee, carrot cake as sandwiches and mango panna cotta as boiled eggs.
There was also a mobile hair company who treated female guests to a 1930s hair makeover.
RIBA Venues’ Head of Venues Stephanie Ellrott says: “We were delighted to see so many meeting planners at our Speakeasy event last night.
“It was a great opportunity for us to showcase what the venue offers with a few surprises along the way.
“The thank you e-mails are already rolling with comments like. ‘I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful party last night. Every detail of the party went above and beyond, from start to finish’.”
