The elegant and opulent La Maison Rémy Martin is back in London Town for the second year running. This private members pop-up club has opened its doors to the city, set in an iconic townhouse right in the heart of Soho.
I recently visited the Maison to experience and immerse myself in an evening of Rémy Martin. The tall townhouse is split into four levels, each floor leading to the next with bold neon lights pointing to the lounge, atelier, bar and much more. I fell in love with the warm vibe of the atmosphere; lazy lounge chairs set on a rich but industrial-inspired backdrop of contemporary gold details. Every level boasts a little something different, offering members a unique journey tantilizing all the senses and helping them get deeper and deeper into the heart of the brand. From lifestyle masterclasses, to unique Rémy Martin XO tasting sessions, it truly is an immersive experience. And it was clear that as you ascended, each floor was somehow different and yet carried that same theme: Rémy’s heritage of elegance and opulence.
I couldn’t wait to sample one of their delicious cognac-based cocktails. Expecting a heavy wave of Rémy Martin, I was pleasantly surprised with my choice – a light and fresh cocktail with a hint of sweetness and a glimmer of cognac, just perfect! Their unique menu of cocktails all looked completely divine, making Rémy Martin more accessible those who may not prefer it straight up. And the low-lit lounge, with relaxed jazz in the background, was the perfect post-work atmosphere to switch-off and truly wind down.
I’m yet to attend one of the masterclasses, but with two weeks left of the pop-up, it’s high on my list before the Maison closes on November 27th. To find out more about visit: http://lamaison.remymartin.com
