Awards Night at Dorchester Hotel

MARCH 2nd COMPANY I WORK FOR HOSTED A FANTASTIC NIGHT FOR HOST OF PRIVATE WEALTH AT THE ASTONISHING  ‘The Dorchester Hotel‘ I have to say this topped last year as there was a lot more entertainment. Although, I had to help out with organising all the tables and being at front desk ensuring people sign in before and during the main event. My overall experience was amazing, from start till the end of the show.

Dorchester Hotel is known for celebrities spotting as I saw Chris Eubank dining inside. At first, we had to set up all the name labels and front desk. Once that was done and completed we got ourselves our very own changing room inside the Dorchester Hotel, the interior was stunning being inside the hotel room for the first time since last year we had to get changed in a random room. Below the TV, if you opened up those draws you could see a fridge, full of treats as there were full with soft drinks and chocolates. The bathroom was just as impressive with all marble flooring and bath.

After getting ready and prepped for the night, I had my tux on as I had no choice but to purchase a new one in order to be prepared beforehand, which I did 2/3 weeks prior to the event with a mix of online and store shopping from Tesco’s F&F, Debenhams, Next and Asda. Thought I pulled it off quite nicely since it did not come as pricey as I thought it would have been as well.Below links are places where I purchased my items in store and online.

Starting with food on the day I thought was impressive, as starters were really nice and fancy. Enjoyed all 3-course meals, as waiters were pretty much friendly as well and filled our drinks continuously. However, loved the fact from starters to dessert presentation was spot on, so well done to chefs at Dorchester Hotel. The menu on right below was what I had for dinner during the awards night from top to bottom. As I told them about my dietary requirements there made sure everything was non-alcoholic and my main dish was halal.

Last year for starters we had Glazed Salmon on Shitake & Scallion, Wasabi Soy Dressing for starting but this year we had Twice Baked Cheese Souffle, Comte & Parmesan Fondue.

This stunning Glazed Salmon was pretty delightful, one of the best seafood I’ve had and it was beautifully presented. The cheese souffle was really soft and well cooked. After our starter we had our main course delivered, what I had in mine was halal meat, grilled vegetable which included mushrooms and peppers as well as comte ana potato.

Our final round of meal was desserts, which was my highlight of the day when it came to dinner on the night. Below is the Plum Streusel with Vanilla Ice cream which we had last year for dinner but this year they really did well when it came to desserts as it was filled with caramel parfait, creme fraiche and honey ice cream.

Plum Streusel was pleasant, had a crunchy taste with plums inside and Vanilla Ice cream you just can not go wrong with that. Who doesn’t like ice creams?.

Dessert this year was scrumptious the caramel had its really soft and sweet taste alongside bite-size vanilla ice cream to wrap up a really good 3-course meal for dinner.Cannot complain as food throughout the dinner was simply good.

After the dinner was served it was on to the awards ceremony, which was hosted by a comedian called ‘Jo Caulfield’ after her entertainment for the crowd the awards ceremony started and was quickly wrapped up within 30/40 minutes.

During the night entertainment was provided for people to enjoy their night such as Jazz Band which sang some old school classic and modern music including Justin Bieber etc. Also, there had a photo booth stand with plenty of props to play around with, which I managed to make good use of it towards the end. I’ve managed to record some parts of the band, inside of Dorchester and hotel. I have just uploaded some footage from the Dorchester, feel free to share your idea’s and leave your thoughts. Also, make sure to subscribe and let me know your thoughts! 🙂

The drawing of me from the image below was drawn on the spot. I was pretty impressed and loved how detailed, quick he created this. This only took the artist roughly 5 to 10 minutes going around drawing self-portraits of people.

Finally, as anti-social the older generation would be when it comes to using social media. I managed to get people around involved to take selfies and use the hashtag on twitter so there can see themselves on the large screens. I loved the fact my selfie came up twice on the big screen! Fame moment there around The Dorchester 😀

My overall thoughts of ‘Dorchester Hotel’ and awards night was really good experience as there was so much going on after main awards ceremony like on stage like’s of Television’s comedian host ‘Jo Caulfield’ amusing people all night. Also, people having a laugh taking images at the photo booth and enjoying live music. An artist going around, who drew people’s expression on the spot.

That is all from The Dorchester,  a really positive outcome and day, which followed by wash-up breakfast at Brown’s in Mayfair the following morning. I had the Eggs Royale, which included toasted English Muffin,, Severn & Wye Smoked Salmon, poached free range eggs and Hollandise.

    It certainly was, I had a lot of fun that day, tiring yet eventful day at The Dorchester :D…I loved the dessert that was my favourite part of our dinner! :P. Agreed, I told the organisers to either make it halal if not then a vegetarian dish but I was pretty pleased with either.

    The event was truly entertaining. I can’t imagine how much fun you had. And the food looked scrumptious. 🙂
    I liked the fact that your wish for halal food was respected 🙂
