On the 14th of September we unequivocally proved yet again that there ain’t no party like a Day True party. Where else would you find an oyster-shucker, tandoori oven and about 400 beers all under the same roof?
Food and drink aside, the real aim of the party was to show off the newly refurbished Maida Vale studio, complete with a brand new Bora Pro cooktop extractor and some stunning new bathroom displays to name a few.
Our lucky guests enjoyed many more treats including fantastic finger food cooked fresh on-site and an in-house gin cocktail blended specially with our own Cornershop gin.
Before you go wondering what was in all this for us, we provided our guests with the opportunity, anonymously or otherwise, to reveal some of their ‘Firsts’ – just a little something for us to remember them by! A few of our favourites are below – and don’t worry if you are one of those who committed pen to paper – we never kiss and tell.
