Event series with the Maybourne Group

Ten curates exclusive events for our concierge members to attend. We have recently hosted three fantastic events with the Maybourne Group; including The Berkeley, The Connaught, and Claridge’s.

An Evening at the Berkeley Ferrari Atelier

The Berkeley, which opened in 1897, is one of the leading five-star hotels in London and is minutes from the capital’s most famous sites, including Buckingham Palace, Harrods and the Houses of Parliament. Following a reception with champagne and canapés, the Berkeley's General Manager spoke about the history of the Maybourne Hotel Group – which includes the Berkeley, the Connaught and Claridge’s – the future vision for the properties and an update on the 'new' Berkeley which was, at the time, going through renovation. Guests at our event then had the chance to head to the Ferrari Atelier – the first standalone Atelier in the world – have a go in the simulator and ask Ferrari experts questions on the brand and the cars.

Armagnac and chocolate tasting at the Connaught

The Connaught – a five-star hotel in Mayfair – hosted a masterclass in the finest Darroze Armagnac, paired with chocolates created by The Connaught’s esteemed pastry chefs. No other hotel in London has such a wide selection of French brandy – produced by Hélèn Darroze’s brother – with more than 40 varieties available on the trolley which are enjoyed by guests at Hélèn Darroze’s two-Michelin-starred restaurant. The event took place in the hotel’s wonderfully ornate Carlos Room and the evening began with a champagne and canapés reception.

Claridge’s Flower Masterclass with McQueens

Guests were invited to world-renowned Claridges to enjoy an evening with McQueens Flower School. Following a Champagne reception McQueens guided Members through the steps to create a gorgeous, seasonal bouquet of spring flowers. Each bouquet was wrapped and presented in a McQueens hand tied bag to take home. Food and drinks were served throughout.
