What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas but for three days in November, what happens in Vegas will actually be staying in London at this free event.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas are taking over a top secret east London location and they’re transforming it into the ultimate speakeasy. And if the promise of an excellent, Las Vegas themed party didn’t draw you in, then the chance of winning free flights to the Entertainment Capital of the World surely does. Those two elements, combined with a guaranteed night of delicious cocktails, impressive mixology and complete escapism are exactly what you’ll find. Oh, and did we mention? This party is FREE to attend.
On arrival, you’ll be treated to an exclusive opulent cocktail, created by one of Las Vegas’ leading Chef Mixologists, Mariena Mercer. Specialising in molecular mixology, edible cocktails and tequilas, Mariena knows her stuff when it comes to drinks. One of them, called the “Behind Closed Doors”, even contains flavoured bath bubbles that glow in the dark. You’ll also find another cocktail on the menu, aptly called “Take Me To Vegas, Baby!”, which promises to be London’s newest and most expensive cocktail – and it comes with a secret surprise.
However, we can’t share too many details – because they haven’t been revealed. One of the main attractions of this speakeasy is that the secrets are kept under wraps until you arrive. With an evocative theme of “What will you find behind closed doors?” it’s truly an evening that you’ll have to take part in to receive the full experience. And it’ll certainly be a memorable one.
And if this Las Vegas themed party gives you the travel bug, then the next part of the event will make you even happier. Throughout the night, Virgin Atlantic will be running an Instagram competition, where the prize is a pair of flights to Las Vegas and a stay at one of the Strip’s best resorts, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
However – there’s a catch. In order to come along to the party, you’ll need to apply in advance for tickets. If you’re lucky enough to receive them, you’ll have to remember the secret password for entry, and you’ll be able to choose which slot you’d like to come along for. Choose between one of three times (5-7pm, 7:30-9:30pm and 10pm-12am) on November 8, 9 or 10.
