st pancras renaissance hotel: opening night party

I’m back from my whirlwind trip to London and the memories are swirling in my mind, jockeying for position, warning me not to forget. But how could I? I’ve visited London many times but each time, the love affair deepens and the memories are etched more firmly on my heart.

I was invited to attend the grand opening party of the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. A renaissance, indeed! This 138-year-old property, originally designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and opened by Queen Victoria in 1873, has just risen out of a massive restoration project that has breathed new life into this historic hotel.

The opening night party drew crowds of people, from London’s who’s who to international media, to celebrities like Adrian Brody and Ed Westwick.

These enormously talented acrobats get the evening off to a fun start. Their gravity-defying stunts leave everyone in awe.

I don’t even know how this happened. One minute we were talking and I believe I was saying, ‘No, I can’t help you with your next trick’ and the next moment, this. These guys were amazing!

What’s a party without some beautiful people? Models graced the stage, bringing a modern Victorian mood to the atmosphere.

Stay tuned for more about the hotel and my trip to Paris!
