Last week myself and a bunch of lovely ladies from the Southampton Bloggers were invited to Grand Harbour hotel for their cocktail reception celebrating the opening weekend of the Southampton Boat Show. The hotel is hosting a pop up Bottega prosecco bar during the boat show which is open daily from 11am to 9pm between the 4th and 20th of September.
It is the perfect place to relax with a glass of prosecco or a cocktail after a busy day exploring the Southampton boat show. With a choice of Sipsmith Vodka and Gin, Funkin cocktails, Curious Brew Beers and Bottega Prosecco there is something for everyone in this prime spot for Sunseeker spotting and gossiping. The al-fresco experience was the perfect chilled environment to take a seat and watch the hustle and bustle of the show from across the road. During the cocktail reception we managed to bag a tray or two of canapes including Croque Monsieurs, grilled halloumi and peppers and smoked salmon and cream cheese on rye bread. All the food was delicious and definitely hit the spot. My favourite cocktail was ‘The Breakup’ which was vodka based and layered with pink and black.
Having never visited the Grand Harbour Hotel before this was the perfect opportunity to explore this stunning hotel and find out a little more about the Boat Show. It was the perfect opportunity to catch up with a fabulous bunch of ladies and to enjoy the last of the Summer evenings before Autumn is upon us. We had a lovely evening talking all things blogging and catching up over a few too many cocktails #fillmeup – here’s to many more evenings like this to come in the future.
A big thank you to Grand Harbour Hotel for the invite and for hosting us for the evening.
