The Nolitan Hotel

The Nolitan Hotel

North of Little Italy… Category: Venues | One of my hang ups about staying in hotels is the check-out time.  11a.m 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 Night London… Zoo! Category: Venues | London Venue | 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

Kanaloa Category:  Venues | London Venue | 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! Happy hour, or as I should call it ‘ Club Tropicana’, is from 4 – 8pm weeknights including Fridays, and is definitely worth a

Amanda's dining club: The Savoy Grill

The Savoy Grill Category: Venues | London Venue | 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! Though I thought it could be a tad ambitious to book a table so last minute, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were able to offer me a table for four at 3pm. As you

Twitter - waste of time or essential business tool?

Twitter Category: Events | 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 🙂
