Deliveroo Edinburgh is celebrating it’s first birthday! Many of you will have used their services to order top quality restaurant food straight to your door, be it for a quiet Friday night in or to cure that hangover come Sunday. A few days ago I was lucky enough to bag myself two invites to their VIP invite only birthday party in partnership with i-on magazine(@ionedinburgh) and let me tell you, it was quite the bash.
Being an invite only party there was very little information about the event floating around, all I had was a start time and a venue, meaning I knew next to nothing about what was actually going to happen. It was held at The Biscuit Factory in Leith(@FactoryBiscuit), a gorgeous warehouse event space for those of you who haven’t heard of it, and DeliverooTop quality restaurant food delivered straight to your door courtesy of Deliveroo had taken the time to decorate the place with an abundance of fairy lights wrapped around the original metal beams and of course their signature kangaroo logo anywhere they could fit it. The whole decor set me in mind of a 1960’s Warhol party, it was fantastic!
Now I have to say these guys really know how to throw a cracking party. As you would expect their was food from some of the companies they currently work with, Harajuku Kitchen(@Harajukukitchen) and Barnacles and Bones(@eatbnb) were set up to provide fresh, hot food as well as various platters, both sweet and savoury, from places such as Bibi’s Bakery(@bibisbakery), SoderbergSoderberg bakery and Hanam’s(@hanams). Drinks were provided by the wonderful Edinburgh Beer Factory(@edbeerfactory) and Edinburgh Gin(@Edinburgh_Gin), with other delights such as prosecco, good ol’ jägerbombs and of course some non-alcoholic options. The best of which as far as I’m concerned were the Canny milkshakes(@wearecanny). I don’t even like chocolate milkshake but there’s was delicious! As if all that food and drink wasn’t enough a variety of local businesses and entertainment had also been invited along for guests to enjoy. Felt you were in need of a little haircut but had no time to get one? Not to worry, Ruffian’s(@ruffians) barbers were on hand to give you that trim. Tired after a long day at work? Urban Massage(@UrbanMassageEDI) where there to give you a relaxing rub down. No time to paint your nails? Don’t sweat it! NAF! Salon(@nafsalon) would have your fingertips ready to party in no time. Couldn’t decide what to do with your hair? Charlie Miller(@cmhairdressing) had you covered with their braid bar. Felt your makeup needed that extra oomph? Fantoosh Face Art(@MrsFantoosh) were on hand to turn you into a glittering masterpiece. On top of all that LOOKLOOK Photobooths(@LookLookbooths) had a GIFGIF booth set up for you to record the memories and a couple of lovely DJs on hand to keep the party on track.
Having heard the experiences of other people at some ‘VIP’ parties I was somewhat dubious about what to expect but needless to say Deliveroo absolutely blew me away. They celebrated their birthday with the utmost style and put on a superb night for all involved.
Long may their deliveries of Japanese food to my door continue!
