So if you follow me on Instagram (Which you should, I’ve been trying really hard to actually post frequently, I’m @thoughtsfromjasmine), you may have seen that on Thursday night I was lucky enough to attend the opening party for Moxy London Stratford!
This was really exciting because I in no way think I’m cool enough to attend anything this exciting; I’m a very tiny blogger and I’m a broke student and I’ve never really
The first thing I noticed when travelling there was what prime location the hotel is in – it’s a 2 minute walk from Stratford station (you can see the hotel from the station), which means it’s essentially right next to Westfield – perfect for anyone like me who spends too much time shopping. From the second we entered through the door we were plunged into this amazing atmosphere (that was so much cooler than I am). There were ladies dancing on stilts, a jazz band (who were absolutely amazing, I thoroughly enjoyed them), topless male waiters, and so many different things to explore. The interior was really chic and modern, made up of black, pinks and purples and there were plenty of sofas and table football, so it seems like it would be a nice lobby to hang out in during
Some of the features of the party that particularly stood out were the human guest book and the free tattoos (they both sound terrifyingly cool, I know). When me and my friend got there we couldn’t believe that they were giving out free tattoos! We both stood there staring for a while wishing that we wanted tattoos as it would have been the perfect opportunity to get one, but alas, we are both babies who can’t commit to artwork for that long (Although how great would a spontaneous free tattoo have been?!) While staring at the people getting tattoos (NONE OF THEM SEEMED TO REACT TO THE PAIN!!! HOW?!) a woman came up to us in a black bodysuit with white graffiti all over it and asked us if we wanted to sign the guest book. “Yeah we’d love to! Where is it?” we asked, to which she replied saying that she was the guest book, and handed us a white pen to sign her bodysuit. This was the first time I’d seen anything like this (Maybe I’m just not hip? It’s definitely a possibility) and I was actually amazed by it – more places should definitely consider it.
Finally, the hospitality really couldn’t be faulted. The staff were all so friendly – in fact
there were some people I had really long, friendly conversations with before even realising they were staff – it seems like a hotel that you’d feel comfortable in.
I am so grateful to Moxy for inviting me to this. Honestly throughout the night I had little moments to myself where I thought “Wow this is my life, I got invited to the same thing as all of these people. They seem to have some sort of illusion that I’m cool enough to be here” and it made me feel so… warm inside (cheesy, I know). It was a night I definitely won’t forget anytime soon, and if you’re staying in London I’d check out Moxy Hotels, this one seemed pretty great!
Thanks for reading! Have you ever been to a Moxy hotel? Do you have a favourite hotel? Let me know in the comments!
