Quorum Party Night at the Ivy Penthouse!

December 20, 2016

I love parties alot.

I must openly admit that I have a strong affinity for the fun, decadence and irreverence that parties of all types can offer.

My party experience resume showcases a level of enthusiasm and diversity that would rival the exploits of the great Errol Flynn;  Cue Beach parties, pool parties, boat parties, foam parties (well, it was the 90’s), rave parties, fancy dress parties, Stag parties…you name the party and I have probably done it.

From what I have observed over the years, parties have a certain psychology attached to them. They tend to create alternate realities which allow people to engage with their alter ego peronality and with others, on a level that they normally would not. Now this thought may usher in images of Ricky Gervais as David Brent, performing inappropriate acts in the office with an innocent co-worker whilst under the influence of alcohol and covered in a variety of colored tinsel.

Whatever image may come to mind for you, the truth is that the office Christmas party is the annual outing par excellence for white collar workers and it is always a great to watch everyone let their hair down and celebrate the year that was.

As part of the festive season this year the team at Quorum had decided to amp it up to a new level, to exceed last year’s great event and reach for the pinnacle of celebratory perfection.

Santa was definitiely listening when we sent him that request, because he kindly returned the favour by sending us all an invitation to the ultimate venue for this year’s Quorum Christmas Party.

Where ?

The Ivy Penthouse, no less.

Quorum had assembled a first-class DJ coupled with an exclusive invitation list to rival any celebrity black book party; full to the brim with our friends, partners, vendors and customers. Our night went off with a bang and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. It is always great to connect with everyone at our parties, as we have a chance to interact in an atmosphere and spirit that is not always possible with the hustle and bustle of the work week all around us.

Make no mistake, the Quorum Office Christmas party is always a great way to celebrate the coming of the festive season and this one was the best one to date! And David Brent was nowhere to be seen…!

Enjoy the pictures and I hope to see you all again in 2017!

Should I ?  An unattended DJ console is always a temptation for me to pretend to be Calvin Harris for a brief moment…I wish!
