We know parties, and we know parties belong in the restaurant and nightclub scene. So what in the hey-o drew us to a luxury apartment high-rise smack dab in the middle of the city? Two words: Club Kensington. And on Wednesday, more than 150 Elite Yelpers, guests and residents of the building mingled among the curated art, slick design and outdoor pool decks of The Kensington's sixth floor for Yelp's High Art Elite Event!
From the reclined solarium overlooking the skydeck's autumnal draw, to the tech-free Unplugged lounge and fully loaded in-house gym, Club Kensington was made for socialization. Yelpers explored the MFA-curated space, while Chinatown neighbors Shojo sampled tastes of their incredible menu. Platters of Peking duck rolls, pulled char sui pork crostinis and skewers of chunks from a whole Thai roasted pig sated the savory seeking, while sweet fans found coconut flan with fresh berry puree to snack on. All the while, guests washed down the bites with Cold Tea cocktails, powered by American Harvest organic spirit, and tall boys of Sixpoint's The Crisp.
Armed with their trusty Yelp app, those who checked in to the event were entered to land a weekend stay in The Kensington's guest suite, a furnished apartment only available to guests of residents. Congrats to Gene L for being the baller checker-inner he is, and taking home the grand prize! Tatsu snapped the action in a series of stills, the reviews are rolling in and Yelpers are firing up the Talk boards! Tag familiar freinds on the Facebook album, then take a look around your domicile. Care to upgrade?
Yours on high-
