Tia Maria Dark Room evening with Tia Maria White Russians in Hummingbird, Glasgow.
Friday night with Tia Maria Dark Room in Glasgow’s Hummingbird was #TIALISCIOUS!
It started off early with a few hours of beautification with complimentary manicures from Wah nails and Brigitte Bardot hair styles from Toni & Guy, which was a lovely touch for girls who have finished up work for the weekend. Hairspray and glitter on the dance floor caught up in the flashing lights of the Tia Maria projectors were what I’d call the Dark Room’s “disco glam smoke” of the night, and although it sounds super girly, the Tia Maria”Dark Room” was full of gents, who seemed to have enjoyed the dance floor more than the girls. Who would want to mess up their new Toni & Guy do’s and Wah nails, right? I danced anyway…
Tia Maria skinny White Russians for the Russian (me) on arrival were certainly my highlight… The “Tia Maria bar” was full of so much vibe and fun every time I was near it. People were amazed with how quickly and skilfully the Tia Espresso Martinis, White Russians and Tia & Ginger were made and served to the guests – I even tried to pick a few tips by taking a video…
But cocktail shakers were not the only things shaking at Tia Maria Dark Room…There would be no party without good music and Gemma Cairney, BBC Radio 1 presenter and former fashion stylist sure knows how to throw a good party. Gemma is Tia Maria’s Dark Room curator and she had organised a bespoke party for each of the country’s host cities collaborating with some of the local DJ and live music acts, which is a brilliant way to connect with the city. We loved a night of dance classics from Gemma and The Mac Twins – I think they brought more “disco-glam-smoke” and glitter to the dance-floor later that got up all the girls on to that dance-floor…
Tia Maria – Thank you for such a fab evening! Can’t wait to try and make some of those cocktails for my mum who is your biggest fan – her name is also Maria! x
