Your Place or Mine?
House Party services guaranteed to get your guests jumpin'
It wasn’t so long ago that I attempted to sleep to the strains of ‘Seven Nation Army’ banging below my head. I’m not unreasonable, and as it was only midnight (yes ok, so I wasn’t exactly having a wild one) I thought ‘let them party’ as I hunkered down. When I awoke at 1:30am to a rousing chorus of ‘What’s that coming over the hill?’ I lost some patience. When 15 strangers spilled into our collective courtyard and could be found hanging out of the windows of the flat underneath us screaming ‘Is it a monster, is it a monstaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa’ at 3am, I phoned Noise Line. What? I’m scared of monsters.
That said, a house party can be a marvellous thing. You’re almost always guaranteed to meet like-minded people and friends-of-friends, the sharing of alcohol is usually generous, and nobody’s going to kick you out at 3 in the morning. But why do it alone when a whole host of services are vying to get through your front door?
Rather than putting ‘Monster’ on repeat, get in touch with UJ’s very own mixmasters Audio Sushi, who will either send a DJ to your place or provide you with bespoke playlists for the night, from hard anthems to loungey pre-party tracks. Don’t know your Mule from your Mojito? Call up the Liquid Chefs, a cocktail service that comes with a variety of slick portable designer bars to choose from, bartenders, glassware, ice and drinks from the sexy Rose Petal Martini to a classic Manhattan. Soak it all up with canapés created by the likes of Scott’s, J Sheekey, Pizza East and Cecconi’s courtesy of Urban Caprice catering, and you’re set.
Just remember to invite your upstairs neighbour.
