Nestled behind Covent Garden and just a stone’s throw from the iconic Somerset House lays one of London’s most contemporary luxury hotels, One Aldwych. A sanctuary of calm within the hustle and bustle of the city, One Aldwych prides itself on providing guest with high-end comfort and a personalised service.
Always out to do something a little different, the London hotel are launching a series of events this February and March which combine two of life’s greatest pleasures– movies and martinis.
Showing in the hotel’s very own private screening room, the events offer food and film fans the chance to sit back and enjoy an iconic movie followed by an indulgent three-course meal in the hotel’s Axis restaurant.
Films on the bill range from the blockbuster Batman film, The Dark Night Rises to the quirky cult classic Chocolat. Shortly following Valentine’s Day on Friday 15th and Sunday 17th February will be a showing of classic romantic tale Anna Karenina, whist come Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd March, treat your gent to some action with The Bourne Legacy. There’ll also be a showing of everyone’s favourite, Breakfast At Tiffany’s on Sunday 10th March – a perfect Mother’s Day gift perhaps?
Guests will not be disappointed by the Martini Movies menu either as Executive Chef Dominic Teague will be cooking up delights such as ‘Braised Suffolk pork collar, pickled apple, crackling and sprout tops’ for main and ‘Warm Valrhona chocolate with roast banana and caramelised hazelnuts’ for dessert.
Of course a martini movie night would not be complete without the essential ingredient of a martini. Sit back in the 30-seat cinema with a shaken or stirred tipple in one hand and a box of popcorn in the other, for a movie night you won’t forget.
One Aldwych are also offering an overnight stay package priced at £320 for two people. The package includes a room for two sharing, the dinner and movie experience, plus breakfast the next morning should you need to nurse one two many martinis from the night before.
The Martini Movie nights will be taking place from Friday 8th February until Saturday 23rd March 2013. Priced at £42.50 per adult. Visit www.onealdwych.com for more information and full film screening list.
