Glamour at the Dry Martini Bar

This week, the Dry Martini Bar at Melia White House set the scene for two sensational events, bringing together a group of people sharing the same passion for food, drink and creativity. The plush 1920s-influenced surroundings of the bar, with its Spanish surrealist artworks, art deco stylings, colourful, mismatched furniture and jazzy background music provided the perfect mix of elegance and eccentricity.


22nd November 2016 – Hotjoint Launch Event

An exclusive group of lucky people got together on Tuesday night for an intimate Martini Cocktail Workshop to celebrate the launch of HotJoint events.

Under the watchful eye of Bar Manager and expert mixologist Diego Cruz, the group learnt how to mix and drink dry martini cocktails.  The event saw the presence of food bloggers and foodies, who adventurously moved behind the bar and started making martini cocktails, mostly for the first time. Ultimately the event was aimed at giving guests a unique experience and to celebrate the creative side of London’s bars and restaurants.
