On Wednesday evening 13th March, the Roof Gardens on Kensington High Street were open to celebrate their 75th anniversary. Before getting to the gardens however, a few of us were lucky enough ride the Virgin Limobikes to the event. The drivers were more than charming and gave a private tour as we rode along to the event. Available for small group hire, with up to nine bikes at once, the limobikes were a great alternative form of transportation.
Arriving in style, we were greeted in the lobby by a band which triumphantly followed us, in a packed elevator I may add, to the top floor. Jamming out to the live band in the elevator was more than just your typical ‘elevator music’ experience. Upon entering the Roof Gardens main events space, the room was up- lighted with blues and purples with a dance floor in the middle of the room followed by a lounge of large lamps and couches. Images were also projected on the main DJ booth and lamp shades adding a decorative element to the room. Stepping outside, the event space extending in two directions: one towards the gardens the other towards a private, covered area. In between the two areas was an open grill area serving food for all the guests. In the private, covered area there was tables, a small bar, a candy station, a photo dress-up station and a room with wireless headsets to watch a movie. The gardens on the other hand were left in their natural beauty for guests to explore. A night filled with drinks, food and countless entertainment, the Roof Gardens Launch Party was a perfect night of fun!
Thanks for the warm hospitality & cracking food.
We look forward to producing more evnets with you this year!
