Read on to to keep up to date with new venue openings and refurbishments and find out what’s happening on the event scene at the moment.
Infinity London tower -55 stories tall and adorned with a rooftop infinity pool
If the rumours are to be believed the world’s first rooftop infinity pool with 360-degree views is set to be built on top of a skyscraper in London. The proposed Infinity London tower would be 55 stories tall, with a 600,000-liter pool on top with transparent sides and a transparent floor, providing a 360-degree views of the capital. And if you’re worried that steps into the pool might be a bit ugly and spoil your Instagram picture then don’t, as swimmers would enter and exit the pool via “a rotating spiral staircase based on the door of a submarine, rising from the pool floor.” To be honest we don’t really understand how that works but it sounds cool. However, if you’re itching to swim along the London skyline, you’ll have a bit of a wait: construction could commence in 2020 – and the location is yet to be confirmed.
The Wing opens in London
New York’s most in-demand members’ club is for women, a network of work and community spaces, and come September it will be opening in London. The co-working space will be inside a grand five-storey Edwardian townhouse in London’s Fitzrovia offering members amenities including a fitness room, tea room, sun terrace, cafe and plenty of space for co- working. The design features blush interiors and blasts of colour with Caitin McGauley wallpaper and Rubelli floral fabrics. Chef Skye Gyngell, of Spring and Petersham Nurseries fame, will be creating a special dish for the menu, while the rest of the food will be by The Wing’s Dani Dillon, who previously worked at Michelin-starred restaurant La Vara in Brooklyn. Applications for membership are open now so go, go, go!
You’ll recognise it from Instagram as the pink floral wall has been used as a backdrop for photos by pretty much every influencer out there but what you might not know is that Elan Café is also available for event hire. Great news if you’re looking for a unique venue for your upcoming event, press day, product launch, photoshoot or blogger breakfast and looking to create a picture perfect event.
Dining Under The Moon
Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram and has been installed at The Natural History Museum in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing and is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition.
Until Wednesday 1 January 2020, event organisers will get the exclusive opportunity to host their events under this stunning six-meter model as guests can enjoy the mesmerising artwork at their own private events in the stripped back Jerwood Gallery. This unique space seats up to 300 for dinner and will be available from 18:00 – 00:00 for private hire (guests may extend the hire until 02:00 subject to availability and an additional fee), so you can dine under the moon for a truly magical experience like no other.
The Court Members Club
Soho’s new private members’ club The Court opened earlier this year on the former Kingly Street site of Bag O’Nails – the music venue where Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones were regulars both on and off stage and where Paul McCartney met his future wife Linda. The new club is “a place to listen to live music, dine at the restaurant and see stunning showcases of art,” said Harry Mead, founder and host. The club can be hired exclusively for up to 70 guests for dinner or 200 for a standing reception and features a world class mixologist and Michelin-starred chef on the team.
