Galerie De La Banque: Luxury Events Space

Galerie De La Banque: Luxury Events Space

You guys! I have a bit of a confession… I’m such a sucker for luxurious venues! And the Galerie de la Banque lives up to every glass clink of Moët! I don’t usually blog about events spaces but I thought I’d share with you the incredible evening I had with 2 of my best friends!

IMG_7884Nestled in the heart of the Cape Town CBD, lives an incredibly gorgeous venue. For those of you that know the Cape like the back of your hand, you’d know that 14 Darling Street was once the home of the Old Mutual Bank, even though it has been modernized throughout time, the building itself still holds so much history and beauty.

Untitled-1IMG_7885From the moment I stepped into this venue, I immediately felt like I was in a scene of Gossip Girl, you know, like you could just see Chuck Bass walking through those doors any minute… It wasn’t GG but it was close! High ceilings, drapes, marble pillars and chandeliers is what you can expect to see at this bespoke events venue and be sure to walk out all razzled and dazzled!

The event was hosted by none other than Urban Avantagarde who are a luxury events agency specializing in high net worth eventing solutions. Some of the companies who’s events they are responsible for are Sanlam, Maersk and Nedbank to name a few of the “big dogs”.

IMG_7878The evening was generously filled with the finest Moët & Chandon champers, cocktails, NURI sushi, decadent food and because it was so hot that day, complete GUILT-FREE chocolate ice cream provided by Skinny Scoop (by the way, this ice cream is LIFE – get it at Wellness Warehouse)

By far one of the most opulent events I’ve attended the whole year and I definitely won’t hesitate to attend another event there! Here’s a few more of the photos from the evening, they aren’t the best as they were taken with my phone but you get the idea 🙂
