Thursday 30 September 2021....6.30pm to 11.30pm... ROLLS-ROYCE new showroom launch party - 38 Berkeley Street, Mayfair, London W1. In this space before was Sainsbury, which i used several times when in the area. We arrive at the venue and there are flames and a blue carpet outside for arrivals. The stunning new space can hold five cars, but only one is in the showroom, for selfies. The rest are parked outside, alongside Rolls-Royce owners who are at the party , so there must be at least 20 stunning Rolls-Royce cars parked up. Rolls-Royce have recently announced the all electric Rolls-Royce Spectre. Their old space in Berkeley Square was looking a bit dated, but this new space looks very sleek. Half a dozen huge digital screens showing moving images of the cars, look great. At 7pm an electric sax player is playing along to dance tracks. At 7.30pm we had a couple of speeches. At 8pm well known DJ duo SIGMA played a lively 60 mins set of well known club anthems, and they had two male vocalists and a female vocalist to sing the vocals and get the crowd involved. Must be at least 250 guests here , and got very lively when the DJ started playing. Complimentary Perrier-Jouet champers, Chivas Regal Whiskey n cokes, gin n tonics, canapés and cup cakes with the RR logo on them for all the guests here. A mainly suited male crowd here, but there were still many women very nicely dressed up. We left late at 11.30pm , but amazingly it was still going strong as it was a 1am finish here. A great party.
