The great and the good of the political scene descended on the InterContinental London Westminster this evening to celebrate first InterContinental to open in London in 36 years. An invite only gathering of captains of industry, socialists, socialites and social commentators marked the official opening of this hotel in the political and Royal heartland of London.
Foodie favourite, Blue Boar Smokehouse and Bar provided mountains of pulled pork, troughs of baby back ribs and stacks of oysters.
Guests were also treated to a Laurent Perrier Champagne room, pop up Portobello Road Gin mixology bar, a mini ginstitute, Meantime beer and cheese tasting, live entertainment, giant ice sculptures, chocolate sprayed candy kiosk, and plenty more surprises including a giant Word on Westminster projection covering the entire six floors.
Politicians Dr Liam Fox and Adam Afriyie were deep in conversation with Mariella Frostrup, Jerry Hall and socialites Sabrina Percy and Astrid Harbord.
