Summer Party Review: Sky Bar, The Grange Holborn

Following on from our event review last month we’ve got another Eventa summer party to show you, again taking place in London, this time in early August in the Sky Bar at The Grange Holborn.

The Grange Holborn is a stylish five-star hotel close to London’s West End, close to the British Museum, Covent Garden and of course, Theatreland. The location of the hotel makes it easy to reach by public transport, being close to Russell Square and Holborn underground stations, as well as multiple bus routes.

The event was a casual affair, a simple rooftop BBQ with drinks and some entertainment for everyone in attendance. With beautiful unobstructed views across London, the Sky Bar is perfect for summer events, and when the weather is great the views just add an extra dimension to the proceedings at this penthouse-level bar and restaurant.

The weather may not have been perfect, but everyone enjoyed the event and it would’ve taken a lot more than a bit of rain to dampen everybody’s spirits!

After guests were greeted on arrival by Megan and Abbi (Eventonians), they were given their drinks vouchers and a welcome glass of Pimms for a drinks reception that allowed everyone in attendance the opportunity to mingle and enjoy the beginning of the event.

The event featured a small awards ceremony for the client, which was enjoyed and observed by all in attendance, even Megan and Abbi as they oversaw the evening. Following the awards, speeches, and a raffle draw it was time for the BBQ meal to be served to everyone.

The BBQ offered exactly what you would expect to see at a BBQ buffet, there were plenty of choices with vegetarian options well catered for, including mixed vegetable kebabs and vegetarian burgers. Thai-spiced chicken kebabs and sun blushed & coriander beef burgers were the order of the day for the meat options, as well as a number of different salads and desserts to enjoy too.

The rest of evening was full of fun and enjoyment, with everyone drinking, dancing, mingling, and even playing some of the large garden games, which included giant Connect 4 and giant Jenga. These games are always guaranteed to provide plenty of fun for all in attendance, perhaps it’s something worth considering for your next office party.

Music was provided courtesy of everyone in attendance, as there was a docking station and auxiliary cable available for the client to control the music and ensure that everyone was making the most of their evening.

Everyone in attendance also received drinks tokens on arrival, allowing them to be redeemed at the cash bar against a number of drinks on offer, and with the client also hiring a photographer for the evening there were plenty of photo opportunities throughout the night, which were duly captured.
