The Young Ladies of The Lady were recently invited to the launch of Sea Containers Events: two levels of function rooms at the Sea Containers building, created to accommodate a range of events against breath-taking views of London's skyline.

The event was managed by award-winning hospitality providers Green & Fortune, and the evening certainly didn't disappoint. The launch was held on the 12th and 13th floor of the Sea Containers, overlooking London's most iconic buildings. Upon arrival, my guest and I were greeted with a fruit-based vodka jelly segment and a passionfruit and chilli spritz before being escorted up to the 12th floor. We walked around demonstrative dining tables with beautiful layouts, business presentations, a LED dance floor and a large circular bar serving wine, beer and fantastic cocktails.


After weaving around and gaping at the views, we headed up to the 13th floor, walking up the stairs of an amphitheatre that could hold up to 200 people. There were canape stations dotted around the event with some great cooking including a carving station serving delicious warm lamb pittas. Other canapes making rounds at the event included venison, spiced apple and mulled wine sausage rolls, cured stone bass ceviche, tequila and lime dressing and salt chilli chicken with spiced pepper mayonnaise. Out of all the food of the evening, I particularly enjoyed the seafood display and 'Pudding Lane' full of fine miniature cakes and sweets. There was even edible mist on offer.



The evening's entertainment included an DJ, electric violinist, pianist, saxophone quartet, a photo booth and an illusionist who left my guest and I completely baffled. Among the six new spaces available for hire, you could envision how anything could come to life from a wedding reception to a corporate party. Rooms are capable of hosting up to 150 for dinner and 250 for cocktail receptions (there is an exclusive hire application for anything larger). The space's terraces and balconies stole the show, with an endless glittering London skyline to view for miles.

As the evening came to an end, guests were given individually bottled and wax sealed barrel aged Negroni. An absolutely show-stopping evening.
