The Natural History Museum has got to be one of London’s most recognisable buildings. With its neo-gothic façade towering over Kensington rooftops, it’s almost a symbol of the grand gesture and the big statement.
Most recently, the Earth Hall provided the dramatic backdrop for a super-glam birthday party. Joining forces with the always-excellent Event Concept and Veevers Carter, we took inspiration from the sophisticated vibe of a private members club – think 5 Hertford Street – the result was an exercise in elegant simplicity and contemporary cool. To complement the design, we created a menu overflowing with luxurious decadence inspired by
the crowd-pleasing cuisine of American bistros,
made popular in the capital by the likes of Goodman, and Smith & Wollensky, but with a refined edge. Using the very best ingredients, we offered velvety, truffled lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, meltingly-tender Wagyu sliders, and crisp, juicy buttermilk-fried chicken burgers with a spikey jalapeno mayo.
A fabulous gold bar gave the dance floor an opulent focal point and exuberant party-goers kept our barmen on their toes until the small hours!
