The Palm London | A Family Affair

by

The Palm in Belgravia. If you live in the area you’re most likely a patron. If you love a good steak, you, too, are most likely a patron. In fact, if you’ve ever searched for an informal but delicious place to celebrate, meet professionally, socialise, drink cocktails or nibble on small bites before a night out, then you also may know of The Palm. And if not, allow me to introduce the restaurant you’ll choose next time you go decide to eat out.

The Global Party | Celebrities, champagne and charity!

by

On June 27th, 28th, and 29th 2013, over 360,000 of the world’s richest, glitziest and most influential individuals will unite and come together to party, socialise and have an unashamedly fabulous night… But don’t worry, it’s all in the name of charity!

The unique concept, which encourages the world’s societal elite to party their cares away in some of the worlds most luxurious venues does sound rather like any other star-studded event on the surface. However, guests may only attend on the pretense of a donation to charity and the venues generously offer their services and hosting skills for free. Ultimately, all funds raised go direct to a selection of worldwide charities, eliminating all costs to the organisers.

Right on the harbour and just a block over from picturesque Queen Square, The Bristol is an ideally situated hotel whatever might bring you to the vibrant and compact city of Bristol.
