Happy 10th Birthday Selfridges Birmingham

September 7th, 2013


It is hard to believe, But the iconic Selfridges store in Birmingham celebrated its 10th birthday this week. And, of course, being Selfridges, it celebrated with a seriously stylish party, complete with mouth-watering cocktails and canapes, and some seriously quirky entertainment.

It is hard to even imagine Birmingham without the stunning Selfridges Building, as much a part of the city skyline as The Rotunda, The BT Tower or St Martin’s in the Bullring. The Moet Bar on the top floor has become a real destination, and so was the perfect setting for the birthday celebrations. General manager Vicki Cain gave a lovely speech to kick off proceedings detailing some exciting new developments for the store, and then guests were treated to a special performance by Operatic drag queen Le Gateau Chocolat, who had a powerful voice and a great line in black prom dresses!

With Mojitos served rustic style in mini glass jars and stripy retro straws, Cosmos and Champers, delicious mini ice cream cones and a bar brimming with Oysters, Selfridges threw a party their way, and completed the night by gifting all guests a stunning Diptyque candle.

A truly amazing night – here’s to the next 10 years!
