Home House. 20 Portman Square. London W1
What a blast we had last night, at what will be the first of many joint parties with posh match-making agency Vida, Elite Singles the online app for singles that truly do want a serious relationship and our very own Rendezvous – that fabulous place to meet long-time friends, business acquaintances and perhaps a fine romance.
Vida’s welcoming crew was downstairs at the glam entrance of Home House – which so many of you are members of – it really is so social we should have a Rendezvous discount! Our very own Lou Lou was handing out complimentary drinks passes. That’s a dangerous mixture, Lou Lou and the drinks trolley – I’m pleased to report she kept the party spirit up high, what’s not to like about that task!
The party rocked on, or squished on, 120 people between two rooms is not easy to navigate. But finding love isn’t either, so why not leave a little bit to chance or fate.
And there was a game. The idea was that you take your card full of coloured stickers and stick them to someone’s card of the opposite sex, exchanging their coloured sticker with yours. You should end up with a card full of stickers of a different colour. A great way for combat sticking, I’d say. The prize was an uber swanky perfume for the person with the most accomplished…er sticker book!
We were so proud of our Rendezvous members in the room, not in the slightest bit discouraged at the sight of no regulars in the room – they smiled on, chatting with new people, especially those who had never been to an event for single people before. We met lots of new friends and extended lots of invites to our Rendezvous parties. Roll on the next one.

Rosé Revolution Party Thursday 2nd May 2019
Every year we look forward to the spring, the warm, longer days and Franco’s rosé wine list launch, unofficially considered the start of the summer season! What could be more agreeable than enjoying a crisp glass of rosé accompanied by delicious canapés chosen from the largest restaurant selection of international rosé wines in Europe (seventy to be exact.)
Franco’s party is now in its 11th year and Rendezvous never being one to miss an opportunity is in its third year of our fabulous Rosé Revolution wine tasting. A party of our very own in a private room and set up off the back of the launch party held during the same week.
Looking around the room and at the glistening pink bottles I had to think…. that’s a whole lot of tasty beverage – no hold fire (literally) I’m in the wrong film reference ….this is no Pulp Fiction of a night, I am certain there’s going to be some True Romance!
Franco’s Restaurant Manager Samir AitAftis, (Sam) spoke about the event and introduced the night and how the party had come about and the extensive list we would be tasting. We had our own bespoke tasting booklets to make notes, perfect for flirty comparative conversation later….
We were wowed with delicious canapes including smoked salmon with crème fraiche & chive, saffron arancino, Parma ham & taleggio and ricotta & spinach tortellini.
As the evening was winding up, we collected up a bunch of business cards and drew the prize out of a champagne bucket (of course we did) Angela won the dinner for four generously donated by Franco’s. I wonder who she chose to go along with her?!
Thank you to Franco’s wonderful team, you are a true credit to your business and thank you for allowing Rendezvous to be included as part of the unofficial start to the season …..Jason, Georgie, Samir, Julia
