Fresh from the wonderful Dolce Vita Live show at dinner the night before, Leading Hotels of the World were treated to a psychedelic experience at Hotel Café Royal in the heart of London.
With a stunning psychedelic event, it pays to get the theming just right. As a result, we took on the task of decorating the venue with various props and furniture which would help to create an immersive experience for guests; benches and seats twinkled as they shimmered through various colours whilst carefully placed mushrooms added an eccentricity to proceedings.
As guests were treated to some delicious morsels from Café Royal’s very own kitchen, they were left equally stunned by our incredible street magician, Andrei. His card tricks are up there with the very best in magic and shrieks of amazement rang loud and clear at various points in the night. To be fair, this could also be because of our fortune teller Amelie, who sat with guests on the balcony and guided them through what they should be expecting in the coming months and years.
With so much entertainment on display, it was to be expected that guests would want to get involved in the entertainment at some point. As one of our favourite circus acts, the Superhoopers rocked up to showcase their skills, a novel attribute to the evening was the attendees were able to get involved as well, spinning a hoop as best they could. Without the psychedelic catsuits, they weren’t quite up to the standard of our Superhoopers but they certainly tried their best.
How better to relax after hoopin’ than by admiring the views on Regent Street shisha pipe in hand or inhaling some of the incredible flavours from the edible mist orbs? All that is being inhaled is air and yet, like something from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, the succulent sweetness is present for everyone to taste and acknowledge!
As the evening continued on, superstar DJs Freight Train pumped up the volume and provided the music for guests to dance long into the night, amidst the extremely colourful atmosphere. A fab event with some top entertainment at a great venue... What more could anyone want? A psychedelic experience that nobody will ever forget.
