Having worked with Haig Club over the past year, I was so excited when they invited me to join them for an evening out to toast the GQ Men of the Year. This is a huge event in the London calendar with many celebrity guests attending and I felt so grateful to have been given the opportunity to attend the after party with my favourite bloggers.
We started our evening with a styling session at Barbour & Parlour in Shoreditch where I enjoyed a Haig Clubman espresso martini with my blow dry. I decided to have my hair straightened for the occasion as my dress had frilly details. I didn’t overly dress up, but I thought my dress was fit for the occasion and comfortable at the same time. I feel that with events like this you need to wear something that makes you feel comfortable so that you can be your most confident self.
After our treatments, we headed out to dinner at The Curtain which is also in Shoreditch. Since I live in Shoreditch I love all the activities that are in the area. Haig Club hosted us inside a stylish blue private dining room at The Curtain, where we enjoyed a party soundtrack and our own cocktail masterclass session whilst we got ready for our night out at the GQ awards after-party – Emily and I opted for the Haig Clubman Cucumber Cooler which provided a refreshing aperitif before dinner.
This is the first time I had dined at The Curtain and I was really impressed with the venue and the food. The food we had was in a Southern American style including chicken and waffles, mac and cheese and ribs cooked in a Haig Club sauce. It was so delicious and filling that I needed a little break afterwards.
After dinner, we hopped into a cab to the GQ awards after party at Tate Modern. The space was filled with so many familiar places and Emily and I even had a chance to take a red carpet photo. The DJ played some great tunes and the atmosphere was so fun that we ended up dancing past midnight. There was a Haig Club bar at the party which served two of our favourite cocktails: the cucumber cooler and espresso martini which are both made with Haig Club Clubman.
It was such a fun evening and I’m so grateful to have spent it with some of my favourite people.
Haig Club Clubman is available at all major supermarkets and online at Drink Supermarket here. It makes for a stylish gift for a whisky lover, or those new to the spirit as it works perfectly paired with cola, mixed in cocktails or over ice.
Have a lovely rest of your week loves!
