“Destination Beirut” comes to St James’s as first pop-up restaurant

From 1-4 May 2013, St James’s will be hosting its first pop-up restaurant experience with Mile High’s “Destination Beirut”, based in a secret location within this unique part of London’s West End. A return trip is then scheduled from 8-11 May.
This event will take place in a hidden location on Regent Street St James’s. The intimate space will replicate interiors of a 1950s Lebanese café reminiscent of the “Paris of the Middle East”.
Anthea Harries, Portfolio Manager for St James’s at The Crown Estate, said: “St James’s is the ultimate blend of elegant heritage and cutting edge trend. As part of our £500m investment vision for the area we’re looking to enhance the existing restaurant offer by attracting acclaimed culinary talent. Mile High is the perfect example of this, as a pop-up restaurant which seeks to combine world class food with special and unique locations, making for an unforgettable experience. We’re delighted they chose St James’s as the next destination on their tour.”

Miniature Holiday Snow Village at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero

The miniature Holiday Village has returned to the Hyatt in San Francisco near the Embarcadero.

A San Francisco tradition, the display was gone for over two years after the death of the previous owner of the display. Because the display is not owned by the hotel it required years to find another kind soul and hobbyist who could dedicate the days needed to set up the display.

Fortunately one was located, and the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero celebrated with chocolate treats and man made snowfall in the hotel lobby.
