Baby, It Was Warm Inside

Martinez Club | 49 Greek St, London W1D 4EG

Wednesday 17th January | 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm

Our first party of 2024 and our last party at the wonderful Martinez club…sob. We were in excellent spirits as we celebrated, and that was even before the Tidal Rum Cocktail..boom boom.  As ever, our Rendezvous regulars warmly introduced themselves to new guests who were trying their best not to be terrified as first timers! Lou and Elsa are such friendly faces on the door, it was hard to get people away and into the main room, they’re such fun company. From there we were thrilled to see so many people pairing off to chat on those oh so comfy sofas.

And Dry January, what’s that you say? Although the Martinez Mixology team put a delicious mocktail together, people quickly progressed to the hard stuff.  That’s fair enough – it was jolly cold outside and the mood was so uplifting, why not elevate it with a fine tipple?

Our munch for the evening was a delicious mouthful of Skinny cakes from those fine folk at the Skinny Bakery. At 40 calories each, I think the consensus was, why not have two.  We went through 150 of them just fyi!

Cocktails, conversation and camaraderie continued flowing long after the event finished. Thank you all for coming out – we were so happy to see you but are so sad to see Martinez Club close. We can’t wait to see what Maurice does next. Wherever he goes, we will surely follow.
