The Nolitan Hotel

The Nolitan Hotel

One of my hang ups about staying in hotels is the check-out time. 11am on a Saturday morning is no time to be spat out of a hotel lobby whilst staff smile insincerely. “Come again” is definitely not on my mind when my breakfast is still digesting and the rain begins to trickle down the collar of my mac (I think I may be the only one who still wears one of these).

Having rolled out of bed on the right side morning (you may seem surprised), I’ve set myself the task of researching hotels with late check-out times. Meandering my way through the www I have stumbled across a gem of a boutique hotel recently opened in none other than NYC. The added bonus is that the check-out time (wait for it), is 2pm! Finally someone sensible is working the clocks.

Late Night London... Zoo!

Late Night London… Zoo!

On the 24 June 2011, CL decided to let their hair down and have a ‘wild’ evening! What better way to do this than at the London Zoo Late Night!

We were greeted upon arrival by a throng of twenty – something’s hiding in the entrance, sheltering from the very heavy rain. As we had not been able to print off our tickets we asked a member of staff were we had to go to collect them. They did not know. Nor did the next member of staff. Third time lucky and we were pointed in the direction of an un- signposted service point.

Cocktails and Chilli as CL visit Kanaloa!

Cocktails and Chilli as CL visit Kanaloa!

Kanaloa is the perfect tropical after work oasis for all you city dwellers! After a particularly busy week, CL Events thought it was about time we sampled some Kanaloa Cocktails for ourselves!

As you enter you are given a flower garland, and as you step in further you truly feel you have been transported to a Hawaiian holiday resort, well, sort of, if you ignore all the suits around!

London at Large

2012 is set to be a huge year for London. The 2012 Olympics will not only regenerate one of the poorest areas of London, create 3,000 jobs and increase our economic growth by 70m, but, as every Londoner knows, when the spotlight is on us Brits - we will up our game considerably. So why not take advantage of the enthusiasm of every Londoner and every London venue by making London the destination for your conference.

Charity Starts at Home - at the House of St Barnabas

Charity Starts at Home – at the House of St Barnabas

Charity Balls and Fundraisers are a big part of what CL do, so we like to keep an eye out for those in the industry who raise awareness and funds through innovative ideas.
Our choice for this month is Quintessentially Soho: House of St Barnabas, a charitable member's lounge and event space in the heart of Soho. Everyone who has been to London will have noticed homeless people on our streets, the House of St Barnabas is London based and their charity starts at home. For over 160 years, the House of St Barnabas has been supporting those affected by homelessness, helping them to bring about a positive change in their lives. The House currently offers a unique Life Skills Programme to individuals recruited from nearby hostels and agencies.

Amanda's dining club: The Savoy Grill

Amanda’s dining club: The Savoy Grill

It’s 10:45am on a sunny Sunday morning in early April and my parents decide that a ‘special’ family lunch in London is in order.
Having read all about the “most ambitious hotel restoration project in British history”, I decide The Savoy Grill at the infamous Savoy Hotel should be the destination for such an event!

Twitter - waste of time or essential business tool?

Twitter – waste of time or essential business tool?

CL Events has joined Twitter, check us out! The influx of social media and the pressure to rise to join the masses has got us all thinking about the time factor. Will this boost our presence, really, or are we just jumping on the band wagon because Twitter is sooo 2011? We're giving it a bash so feel free to comment, happy with constructive criticism too :-)
Parkstead House

Parkstead House

On a cold November night, CL were invited for drinks and canapés at Parkstead House, a beautifully restored country house nestled in the grounds of Roehampton University. Just five miles from Central London, Parkstead House provides a relaxed country environment without having to travel for house. If you’re looking for a versatile suburban venue, it’s definitely worth taking a look at. With sweeping views across Richmond Park, Parkstead House one of the most beautiful places in the ever increasing concrete jungle of South West London .
