Moxie were delighted to be invited to celebrate of our FIFTH birthday at the Eclectic Hotels’ Eleven Didsbury Park. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? Set in a quiet backwater off Parrs Wood Road, in the leafy suburb of Didsbury this exclusive Victorian townhouse is a statement of Eclectic’s trademark design. Many smaller hotels are described as ‘Boutique’, and often disappoint, but Eleven Didsbury Park absolutely epitomises that tenet.
Ourworx is all about office space with a difference, so it’s an ideal venue for Moxie – renowned for networking with a difference. Ourworx provide serviced offices but with a luxurious and modern edge in elegant, stylish surroundings. These prestigious spaces are finished to exacting standards and high-quality specifications. With superior, top of the range furnishings, and a host of services, facilities and benefits, Ourworx is the perfect solution for small business office rental (and handily close to Stockport with easy access to rail and road links) – and the perfect space for a Moxie Mingle.
Moxie were delighted to be invited to Bramhall’s newest bar, the swish and sumptuous Blanc de Blancs on Wednesday evening. More than just a wine bar – but not heading into pub territory, or treading on anyone else in Bramhall’s toes – Blanc de Blancs is gorgeous and owners Emma and Alex clearly have a passion for what they do. They also have a passion for Bramhall and use local businesses as much as possible – even the stunning artwork is from Cheshire Art Gallery, just over the road.
On Thursday 23 February, Moxie Minglers braved Storm Doris and headed out to the imposing and stunningly beautiful Shrigley Hall Hotel, Golf and Country Club. Despite fallen trees, flying debris and severe weather warnings (and even with the added complication of everyone’s children being off school for half-term) we had an absolutely fantastic turn out. Thank you – it was lovelier than ever to see you all!
On Thursday 9 February, Moxie headed back to one of our favourite – and therefore regular – haunts, Gusto Cheadle Hulme. It’s that delectable full English breakfast that does it. Or is it the Eggs Florentine? Or even the smoked haddock omelette… Maybe it’s the lovely, fresh, bright surroundings or the convenient village-central location (but my money’s still on the full English).
Heddy Ghazizadeh welcomed Moxie to his lovely restaurant and middle eastern mezze bar, in the heart of Wilmslow, for our second Moxie of 2017 on Thursday 26 January. Only the second mingle of the year and it already feels like we’re properly back in the swing of things with venues booked into April… Heddy’s has been established 17 years and so is Wilmslow’s oldest restaurant.
Last Thursday, Moxie got merry with our Jingle Mingle at the beautiful Alderley Edge Hotel. Business cards and literature were entirely optional this time and pretty conspicuous in their absence – although the name badges still made an appearance – and Wendy had a welcome night off from the introductions.
On Thursday 14 July, Moxie headed to the stunning home of long-time Moxie regular Zool Digital, in the heart of the Alderley Edge countryside at what was once the famous ICI/Astra Zeneca location. We were welcomed to the restaurant, in a rather idyllic lakeside setting, surrounded by ducks and geese and lush green trees. Not too shabby a place to work at all!
