Experiencing A Taste Of NYC At The W London

Our recipe to the perfect girls night at the W London this Winter! - Words & Pictures by Hayley...


Picture above: The New York cocktail from the W London's second Snowstorm Series!


Last Friday myself and the beaut FMIF girls headed down to the W London to experience their Snowstorms Series - now, I need to tell you why their next event NEEDS to get in your diaries ASAP, because trust me, it will be the best girls night out you've had in ages!

Where? Leicester Square, 10 Wardour Street, London, England, W1D 6QF


So, why the W London? Last Friday myself and the beaut FMIF girls headed down to the W London in Leicester Square to enjoy their second Snowstorm Series event. Friday's theme was New York, so we thought it would be bloody marvellous to head down to the W Lounge and enjoy a New York themed night, so I could get a taste of NYC in London before I head there for realz tomorrow, cool huh? It was honestly one of the best nights out I've had in such a long time! The staff were wearing baseball tee's & caps, the DJ was blaring out old school Hip Hop and we nibbled on the Snowstorms Platter, oh, and just when you thought the night couldn't get any better.. there was a live Saxophone player! After Friday, ready for you New York, boo!

What is the Snowstorm Series? So, the Snowstorm Series is a string of six events put on by the W London, based around W Hotels in colder climates, i.e the first event was a chalet party based on the W Verbier (full review here as I stayed in November and it was incredible!!), then this Friday just gone was based on New York. Everything on the night will be themed around the location, from the music to the way the staff dress and the cocktail of the evening, the New York cocktail was truly DELICIOUS and was made up of; Coconut infused bulleit, bulleit rye, lemon juice, campari, pineapple pure, honey and cinnamon syrup... yum!

Are their anymore upcoming events? Yup, lucky for you guys the series has recently just kicked off, with the Verbier chalet themed event kick starting the series, and the New York event having passed this Friday just gone. Fear not lovers, as the W London will be hosting another four upcoming events; listed below for you! Tbf I'm keen for all of them but will definitely be going to the Edinburgh one!

24th Feb – WINTER VINES starring Santiago

10th March – MAPLE LODGE starring Montreal

24th March – WINTER PALACE starring St Petersburg

7th April – HIGHLAND FLING starring Edinburgh

    Oh wow, the Snowstorm Platter looks like one million and one calories – and 100% worth it, haha. Deep fried Mars Bar? Yes please!! I’ve only visited the W London a couple of times, but was so impressed on both occasions, so I can imagine how amazing this is.
