The Hendrick's sponsored opening of the boutique Studio last night was just perfect. Mostly family and friends and long term supporters of Le Noeud Papilllon, a lovely bartender called Sebastian who made a special cocktail called a Pompier and the best chicken and smoked salmon finger sandwiches courtesy of my partner's mother. The night was filled with great music. We played Sidney Bechet's 'Si tu vois ma mere', Cole Porter's 'Anything Goes', Ella Fitzgerald covering 'It's De-Lovely', Jon Hendricks singing 'Watermelon Man' live at The Trident Club, U Plava Zoru by Pink Martini, La Mer by Vance Joy, High Society Calypso by Louis Armstrong and many many more great classic songs.
It was a lovely way to break in a new space. Thank you to all those that turned up.
