Maroto’s Marvellous Evening: Cocktails, Connections, and Cheeky Charm

Thursday 28th September – 18:30 pm – 20:30 pm

Maroto l 4 Vere Street. London

Our Maroto event was an absolute blast. We sipped, we mingled, and we celebrated in style. It was a night of connection, charm, and cocktails that left everyone feeling …well…marvellous!

A Grand Entrance: Guests Shimmied and Shook Things Up

The evening kicked off with a sizzle as our guests made their way into the newest Cocktail Bar in town. The atmosphere was electric, and the sumptuous space quickly filled with our gorgeous guests. Maroto’s sleekly polished countertops and art deco interiors added an air of sophistication, it was the perfect setting for an unforgettable night.

Cocktail Artistry: Maroto’s Mixology Magic

Now, let’s talk about the stars of the night—the Maroto team. They were nothing short of cocktail maestros! As a welcome gesture, they concocted the “Marotinia,” a tantalizing twist on the classic caipirinha featuring Zeca de Mato Cachaca, berries, and lime. For our non-drinking aficionados, there was the refreshing “Sabia Passion” mocktail, made with Seedlip 94, pineapple soda, passionfruit, and lime. Cheers to options for everyone!

Luxury and elegance: mingling in style.

And the canapes just kept coming, we were treated with Tapioca tacos with seasoned mushrooms with cashew nut cream, Pao de queijo – those gorgeous mouthfuls of baked cheese dough ball-deliciousness, and sourdough crackers with beef tartare with shitake confit, mustard mayo and summer truffle. Scrumptious!

As the night went on, guests mingled happily in a low-lit, moody temple of refined decadence. Picture this: a centrepiece X-shaped formation of plump and velvety plush sofas, all bathed in the glow of gorgeous chandeliers. It was an ambiance tailor-made for sparking connections and sharing stories.

Our Fantastic Team: The Heroes Behind the Scenes

Behind every great event is a team of dedicated individuals who make it all happen. A big shoutout to Monty whose brain child this was plus Giorgia, the master behind the bar, Jean-Pierre, our trusty bar back, Edo, the head waiter who kept everything running smoothly, Hanna, the cloakroom guardian, Priscilla, our attentive waitress, and GianLuca, the head bartender extraordinaire. Not to forget General Manager Luca and Chef Nilson these folk ensured that every guest felt like royalty.

Winner of Dinner for two.

And the fun didn’t end there! One lucky gent is coming back to dine at Bossa, the restaurant upstairs. Bossa is run by none other than Brazil’s most celebrated chefs, Alberto Landgraf (with two Michelin stars, no less!). The restaurant is known for its “fun and relaxed” vibe, which means our winner is in for a memorable meal with two courses of contemporary Brazilian food and a bottle of wine. That is a prize worth winning!

Our Maroto event felt like a true triumph. Stay tuned for our next event, because when Maroto is involved, you know it’s going to be a night to remember!

Some lovely feedback –

I so enjoyed the very upscale and stylish Rendezvous 40-+ singles in London event at Maroto!  The party was perfectly curated for getting to know everyone in a friendly environment. Normally intimidated by such things, especially if they feel too competitive, I would have stayed away. But I was assured that I would feel among friends (just friends that I haven’t met yet) and within a like-minded tribe of people who enjoy dressing up and meeting new friends. Literally everyone I met at the event were gracious, mannered, and conversational. This was indeed all I’d hoped for. I had a fantastic time! I was thrilled by the ratio of men to women. The hostesses know how to bring out the best in everyone. You won’t be standing alone for long before a kind or friendly (or handsome/attractive) person approaches for a light conversation. Loved it!

Just would like to say a huge thank you, what a wonderfully organised party last night, in such beautiful surroundings too. Congratulations 🎉 really well done! Thank you for including me x

Lovely to see you last night, and thanks again for organising another fabulous evening! A lovely new venue, a good mix of people and some really enjoyable conversations….and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have won the dinner for two prize!!

Thank you for a lovely evening with the lovely Rendezvous people ‘comme toujours’. Great venue too!
