The Kensington Hotel London - Aubrey Bar Martini Meet

Martini Meet @Aubrey Bar - The Kensington Hotel

I saw a Twitter message about this event and was thrilled to get a tweet back from Garreth Walsh saying that he was looking forward to meeting me and my iPhone ;) 

I headed towards the nice Kensington Hotel and walked towards the Aubrey Bar where the event Martini Meet was taking place....

I was greeted by the very friendly staff  Garreth Walsh (GM of the Kensington Hotel), Kristin Kalmu (Assistant Restaurant & Bar Manager), and Anna Cort (Assistant Director of Sales). 

Alessandro Pizzoli (called Alex) award winning barman welcomed us with the long menu of Martinis so we could make our selection...difficult to choose (however, I managed to tried most of them)
