It’s party time…

It takes a big team to create a hotel.  Especially when the hotel started life as three graffiti covered walls and a hole in the ground! So we had a long list of people to thank for their help along the way – everyone from the architects, builders, designers and artists through to the money men (and women!), Chef Miguel and his crew and the hotel management team.

Last week we finally had the chance to do just that.   With Lumni Restaurant and Bar officially open we had the perfect space to throw a party.   And what a party it was!  Here are a few pics of a very special night where we got to say THANK YOU  to a fantastic bunch of people…
