Kaspar.jpgLondon’s Savoy Hotel has hosted some auspicious guests since opening its doors to the public, in 1889.
Now, Springboard (the organisation responsible for promoting hospitality as a career of choice) is offering you the chance to be among the last people to dine at this Grande Dame of the city’s hotel scene before it closes for extensive restoration.
Marlene Dietrich, Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw and Claude Monet all visited; Bob Dylan filmed the video for Subterranean Homesick Blues here; and Auguste Escoffier invented the Peach Melba here for opera singer, Dame Nellie Melba. Springboard’s December 6th Christmas dinner gives you the chance to add your name to the iconic hotel’s lengthy guest list.
Who knows, you might even end up sharing a table with the hotel’s most famous four-legged resident, Kaspar, the statue of a cat that’s placed at tables of thirteen to stave off bad luck.
there are more details on the Springboard website.
