At G.N.H. bar Opening – Revised

Yesterday night was the opening of the G.N.H bar, aka the bar of the recently opened  Great Northern Hotel in (literally speaking) Kings Cross – St. Pancras International Railway stations.

ImageImageInvited by the Lime & Tonic team, I couldn’t miss the opportunity of delicious cocktails, beautiful people and great tunes by DJ Jerry Bouthier on a feels-like-summer-in-the-city Thursday evening..

ImageImageAnd a great excuse to wear my Costume De Rigueur..

ImageBarman -slash- drummer David Maurette was serving us champagne cocktails, Oriental Express and Lady Violet all night long. Below…In Action!

ImageAnd an unexpected surprise! The manager was so kind to give us a private tour at the hotel rooms upstairs, making us the first ever visitors! Hmm, unfortunately, not overnight…

A style quiz, you, girls, are going to love : Can you guess why these corridors are so wide??

ImageThe answer is that they were designed like that, so the ladies would be able to walk side by side in their huge petticoats…

Ooo cute!

And it’s just getting better…At the very end of each corridor there is a Pantry, full of complimentary “late night delights” (dirty minds) and morning wake-up call essentials like homemade cakes and pastries, coffee, soft drinks, books, daily newspapers and magazines.

How thoughtful of them is that??

There are three styles of rooms, The Couchettes, The Wainscots and The Cubitts 

Below is the Cubitt one, whereas my favorite was the Couchette, (so excited that I forgot to take a picture..) designed like a first class sleeper compartment of Orient-Express…

ImageTriple-me…

ImageImageReturning to the bar in style…

ImageImageImageCostume De Rigueur for At the N.G.H bar Opening – Revised: Anthropologie shorts (AW12), Temperley London Blouse (similar), H&M peach sandals (so last year but  maybe my most comfortable heels!), Calzedonia opaque tights, Atelier Loukia Tail Blazer (one-off piece!!), Vintage cape

Great Friday tonight…

&  Happy Easter to us..

P.S. Apologies for the medium quality of the photos, as they were taken with an iphone…My camera couldn’t fit in the blazer pockets. 😉
