On Tuesday 8th December, we celebrated our Informal Christmas Party at the Dry Martini Bar by Javier de las Muelas, located within the Meliá White House Hotel, one of our members. Our guests were welcomed with some special cocktails, specially created for the event.
The Informal Christmas Party is one of our most popular events as it officially closes our activities for the year. On this occasion, nearly 200 guests joined us to catch up with fellow members before the end of the year. The venue certainly contributed to create a relaxing but engaging atmosphere and set the right mood for attendees, who took the opportunity talk about their plans for Christmas while enjoying a drink.
For those of you not familiar with the venue, the Dry Martini London bar’s dedicated martini counter offers a choice of 80 gins and numerous bitters allowing guests to craft their martini of choice. In continuation of a tradition started at its Barcelona branch it will also present guests with a stamped certificate every time a dry martini cocktail is ordered.
With the event in full swing, Javier San Basilio, recently appointed President of the Spanish Chamber, took the stage to thank both Meliá White House and Dry Martini Bar for kindly hosting this event as well as the members in attendance for their continuous support. After this, it was time for the prize draw, where two lucky winners went home with a cocktail-making workshop at Dry Martini Bar to learn how to reproduce at home the cocktails they were enjoying at the bar.
We are sincerely grateful to Meliá White House, Dry Martini Bar and everyone who joined us on this occasion to celebrate the end of another exciting year. We take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic Christmas and a very happy 2016.
If you missed the event, the Dry Martini Bar is open to the public every day of the week so you too have the opportunity to enjoy some of London’s best cocktails. You can find the Dry Martini Bar on the ground floor at Meliá White House hotel.
Last but not least, we would like to remind you that 2016 will come full of exciting activities and new networking opportunities. You can keep posted on our UPCOMING EVENTS visiting our website or subscribing to our newsletter.
