It doesn’t get much ritzier than cocktails by candlelight at, well, The Ritz. Newly opened for the summer, the hotel’s Secret Garden is lined with perfectly pruned topiary and filled with lemon trees and fragrant lavender pits. Expect the finest cocktails, bar snacks and service as you while away a lazy summer’s afternoon. This is something similar to what JustSo can create as event management agency in London.

Open throughout the summer months, 11am-11pm

Ruinart & Jonathan Anderson Pop-Up Experience

Iconic champagne house Ruinart has joined forces with LOEWE’s creative director Jonathan Anderson to launch Hotel 1729 – an exclusive hotel that sleeps just one couple per night. The lucky guests will experience an intimate banquet held in an art-filled townhouse in Notting Hill. Inspired by a 1735 painting Le Déjeuner d’Huîtres (The Oyster Lunch), which is one of the first ever depiction of diners sipping champagne, the opulent menu and space are set to give guests a taste of sublime luxury.

When life gives you lemons, launch an Amalfi-inspired pop-up (or something like that). This summer, The Berkeley is winning major Instagram points with its lemon tree-lined ‘La Dolce Vita’ experience. Featuring yellow-striped sun loungers, an Italian-inspired menu and an indulgent Dolve Vita spa treatment, the rooftop pool is the perfect spot for a scenic splash and an alfresco aperitivo beneath the stars. Many event management agency in London are working hard to create similar experiences.

Nothing sounds quite as refreshing on a balmy day as sipping an ice-cold G&T under a shady pergola. With the craziness of the city far below them, visitors to the Michelin-starred Angler restaurant in Moorgate can hide away in a floral gin paradise while getting to taste some of Britain’s finest gins. Cin Cin.

Throughout June and July.
