The Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh
mclcreate were approached to support our client to create a ‘club atmosphere’ Christmas party in one of Edinburgh’s beautiful and traditional venues – The Assembly Rooms.
We also sourced and booked multiple DJ acts from local venues in the Edinburgh and Glasgow area that were well-known on the underground scene for club nights.
We had around 650 guests which meant we had exclusive use of the Ballroom, Music Hall and Drawing Rooms. In order to create a club theme we designed a ‘chill out’ area in the Ballroom and West Drawing Room that comprised of soul DJ’s and a mixture of sofa seating with illuminated furniture placed in ‘snugs’ for the guests.
Bars were placed either end of the room that fitted in with the theme and our AV crew created subtle and relaxing lighting that lit the venue’s chandeliers perfectly.
The East Drawing Room was kept for the amazing Appetite Direct to set-up different food stalls such as fresh pasties and pies, Thai and Indian curries and a sweetie stall – all were very welcomed by the guests!
The Music Hall provided a different feel altogether. This was a smoke filled ‘club feel’ space where House and Garage DJ’s blasted tunes out through our Bass system. The staff’s chests were vibrating during the sound checks it was so powerful. In here we organised some high stool seating and small tables for those who wanted to rest their feet.
The foyer area and West drawing room also housed instant photo booths with Christmas themed props so guests could take home with them a little reminder of the night.
Once the event came to a close, guests were encouraged to take their party to an exclusive club a stone’s throw from the venue that had been booked out for our client only.
