The Sloaney’s guide to the top social hotspots at The Henley Royal Regatta
Recent gale force winds may have blown away all hopes of summer, but fear not, highs of 25°C are predicted in time for The Henley Royal Regatta next week.
Henley is undoubtedly renowned as the best Regatta in the world and a definite highlight of the British social season. With thousands of visitors expected over a five day period there is plenty to see at this wonderful occasion. Here is my guide of where to go to make the most of it…
– The Henley Champagne and Cocktail Club –
The Henley CCC, situated at the half way point, will offer an oasis of cocktails designed by award winning bartender Dominic Jacobs working alongside, Chase Vodka, Williams Gin and Feaver Tree. Those fond of champagne will be able to choose between Perrier Jouet or G.H Mumm. To ensure you don’t have to leave the Moroccan Oasis and battle the bank crowds, The Henley CCC has also collaborated with delicious Soho-based, Pizza Pilgrims.
The music is sure to keep your feet tapping and hands clapping with DJs from some of London’s top clubs, not to mention the surprise performances. There are plenty of ways to get a slice of all the action at The Henley Bar – whether you want to party for a night, a weekend, or for the whole week, this is sure to be one of the most popular destinations.
Book tickets here.
– The Stewards’ V The Regatta Enclosure –
Should you have the opportunity to experience the Stewards’ Enclosure (open to Members and their Guests only) I strongly urge you to accept. With 6,500 Members and a waiting list of 1,000 you are more likely to see an Englishman win Wimbledon than become a member in the next decade!
Dress code is strictly only Gatsby standard, also mimicked by The Regatta Enclosure that is situated just downstream. The atmosphere here is less formal with all members of the public and children welcome upon pre-purchase of a badge.
– Rhubarb Henley-
Rhubarb Henley will be returning to manage the River Lounge again this year. With great views of the action on the river you can start your day with a delicious canapé and champagne breakfast and experience the unique and memorable style of the enclosure, all with a personal and friendly service.
Tickets are on sale now for this exclusive package that is available from 3rd – 6th July. Book here.
– Mahiki Henley –
For those who haven’t experienced the Tiki Wonderland, Mahiki will be teaming up with Lexus to offer a Waterfront experience for the fifth consecutive year. Should the rowing not float your boat they will be showing live coverage of Wimbledon and offering their trademark signature cocktails from the Mahiki Coconut.
So with plenty of hospitality options, you can sit back and relax whilst watching the action on the waterside.
