Whoop whoop! Let's hear it for the launch of London's Yelp Elite! (And celebrate with a party, naturally!)
In honour of London’s Yelp Elite inauguration, The nYne Lounge bartenders competed to created a Yelp cocktail to remain permanently on their menu. And naturally, Elites and +1s had the enviable task of taste-testing every concoction and judging their worthiness. Pete M and his bartenders put on one hell of a show mixing, shaking, and schmoozing our 70+ yelpers. Names like ‘Yelp if you want to go faster,’ and ‘Yelpilini,’ got a roar of approval, but the overall winner and the proud creator of the first ever Yelp cocktail was Steve W with the ‘Yelpalicious.'
The stunning nYne Lounge had an electrifying vibe with yelpers enjoying healthy snacks, listening to the smooth sounds of DJ Leisuregroove and of course sampling the glorious cocktails.
Molly K had this to say: "Yelp-a-LICIOUS indeed, I've never felt more proud to be a yelper."
Chris H felt the need to yelp his love for the venue: “I loved its big, comfy chairs, it's free pool tables, it's spaciousness, and its friendly, funny and cool bar staff.”
The highlight of the event had to be Richie D and his incredible flair show to conclude the night. His bottle spinning skills wowed the audience and stunned many into disbelief as he spun, tricked and flicked his way into Yelp folklore. Indeed, the ‘Boomerang Straw' just might go down in Yelp history.
A big thank you goes out to Pete M and the nYne Lounge for letting us take over their beautiful bar, Sarah S for snapping us a wealth of great shots, and to everyone who came for creating such an unforgettable inaugural London Elite Party. Here's to the next one!
