Attracting an gathering of Northern Ireland’s chic party set, celebrities, and young business people, the Bar at The Fitzwilliam proved to be the perfect place to ease into the weekend in style.

Opening its doors in August 2011 the boutique is one of farfetch’s top 39 boutiques in the world and stocks a collection including, Isabel Marant, Etoile, including Peter Pilotto, Jonathan Saunders and Carven, the exclusive store has already become the boutique to find must-haves of the season.
Guests were treated to bottles of Peroni courtesy of Richmond Marketing the drinks sponsors of the evening as well as cosmopolitan cocktails served in huge crystal glasses. Delectable canapés were also served including foie gras and chicken liver parfait, confit of duck rilette, Walters own smoked salmon on wheaten bread, crostini of tomato, garlic and herbs with balsamic and onion, goats cheese tartlets and a range of delicious deserts including a chocolate tart with morello cherries and mini tarte au citron with pink peppercorn meringues.
The event was also used to launch the Fitzwilliam Belfast’s regular Friday DJ set. Taking place from 6pm to 9pm every Friday evening the event promises to be the perfect setting for urban trendies to relax into the weekend while top-shelf DJs spin laid-back tunes.
