A Thursday night for our networking at the glamorous venue Mahiki; where we met the Mahiki team along with Kensington & Chelsea’s finest businesses in one of the most interesting venues in the borough.
Named after the Polynesian path to the underworld, the bar is famed for its “Tiki” Polynesian themed interiors, lit with an atmospheric glow. The cocktails, which are world renowned, attract rum enthusiasts from all over the globe. The Pufferfish restaurant’s menu will transport you to an exotic Polynesian Paradise and deliver unforgettable theatrical touches that include sushi hand seared tableside plus a Raw Bar.
We started 2019 with our first networking event at the Residence Inn London Kensington. The food was delicious and although some of us were partaking in dry January I was told the wine was lovely too.
The Residence Inn has some of the most spacious and well-appointed hotel accommodation in West London where you can relax in smartly designed accommodation with free Wi-Fi and separate living and work spaces.
