Dress Hire in London!

London, Manchester, Leeds, Dublin and Liverpool are the most popular destinations for dress hire this month at Girl Meets Dress so we’ve decided to take you through the best rentals for each. This blog will feature our most popular city London.

What’s going on in London?

Hitting the Town: Embargo’s 

 

London Blog 1Embargo Republica brings a slice of Cuban cool to King’s Road. Located at a prized location on Chelsea’s King’s Road, you’ll enter through a cigar shop to discover a smooth and stylish space featuring exposed brickwork, vintage furnishings and a spacious rooftop terrace.

The venue offers an exhilarating mish-mash of music, with live bands and DJs gracing the stage every week. These guys also consider luscious cocktails as something of a speciality, with no less than 20 different bottles of rum vying for position on the shelves. The choice of premium champers on offer confirms that we are definitely in Chelsea, and Embargo Republica’s blend of rhythm, colour, spirit and style ensures that Cuban values are never far from the surface.

 

For a truly great party dress to hire in London try the Navy Bodycon Dress by Versace Jeans or our Pink Sand Dress by Krystof Strozyna – remember, you can rent 3 at a time and get a refund on the ones you don’t wear! Don’t worry about any drink spillage on your night out either – we take care of all the dry cleaning!

Dining Out: Zuma

london blog 2Out of simplicity can come excellence, and the food at Zuma is a case in point. The venue may be swish (with well-to-do patrons propping up the amply stocked cedar bar), the fixtures and fittings expensive, but when it comes to the food, much of the wow factor is down to high-class ingredients that haven’t been messed around with too much. Own-made silken tofu, presented in a cedar saké cup, was rich, creamy and light.

The barley miso, freshly grated wasabi and other accompaniments allowed the tofu to shine. A more indulgent dish of spicy miso with lobster also had a clarity of flavour, with the sweet shellfish the star. An ample house special of deep-fried lemon sole was served with a fresh, tangy ponzu sauce and cleverly presented in a bowl made of the curved and deep-fried skeleton of the fish. The waiting staff couldn’t  be nicer, and even the chefs behind the imposing robata grill seemed to be having a good time. Be sure to give the saké list a proper look too: there are more than 40 to choose from.

Performances to Remember: The Royal Opera House 

London Blog 3

The Royal Opera House aims to enrich people’s lives through opera and ballet. Home to two of the world’s great artistic companies – The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, performing with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House – we seek to be always accessible and engaging, to develop audiences across the UK and to break new ground in the presentation of lyric theatre.

The Royal Opera, under the direction of Antonio Pappano, is one of the world’s leading opera companies. It is renowned both for its outstanding performances of traditional opera and for commissioning new works by today’s leading opera composers, such as Harrison Birtwistle, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Thomas Adès. Some of the world’s most famous singers have performed with the Company, including Joyce DiDonato, Plácido Domingo, Renée Fleming, Juan Diego Flórez, Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann, Anna Netrebko and Bryn Terfel, as well as the late Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland.

The Royal Ballet is one of the great ballet companies of the world. Under the leadership of Director Kevin O’Hare, grand balletic tradition and an illustrious heritage are united with innovation, daring and exceptional standards of artistry, creativity and stagecraft to produce supreme theatre. It is a beacon in the cultural life of Britain and a driving force behind the development of ballet as an artform. The Company’s commitment to enriching people’s lives through ballet is reflected in the deep relationships it forges through digital and learning platforms and international touring.

What to wear to Black Tie this November

The cold season is here, the nights have become longer, and the time to go back into our wardrobes to find those warm coats and rain boots, has also arrived.

As you may know, Girl Meets Dress anticipates all your needs, and that is why we have created a special list of dresses that you can impress with at your next Black Tie event!
