Moxie first mingled at the Stanneylands almost a year ago – and we were blown away then. The building and interior were stunning and the landscape around it almost idyllic – despite its close proximity to the A34, the airport and civilisation generally. The Stanneylands really does deliver the best of both worlds. We could only imagine what the planned refurb would achieve – and couldn’t wait for our sneak preview and guided tour!
Last Thursday, Moxie Mingled at the fabulous Keller Kitchens showroom at home here in Bramhall – where we were also treated to a champagne tasting mini masterclass thanks to the Cracking Wine. Let’s face it, all the best parties end up in the kitchen. Who says networking’s staid and boring? You’re doing it wrong!
Last week, Moxie visited the incredible new Colony event and business space development, conveniently located on Altrincham Road, just on the outskirts of Wilmslow. The Colony is a sympathetic, yet contemporary, addition to the rolling Cheshire countryside and that setting makes it a perfect location for this unique combination of luxurious offices and professional business space.
On Thursday 28 September – just two weeks after spending a most enjoyable morning networking at the Botanist, Alderley Edge – Moxie were thrilled to be heading over to the newest acquisition to the Botanist family, in Didsbury. Nestled just off the busy Wilmslow Road, on School Lane, the Botanist Didsbury is cool yet welcoming and thus another perfect Moxie venue.
It was back to school for Moxie on 14 September, after a break for the summer while everyone went to Abersoch and beyond. Firstly, a huge thank you must go to Josie and Jessica of The Botanist Alderley Edge for stepping up and saving the day. Our original venue was cancelled at short notice so we really appreciate it! Lovely also to meet Hannah of the Botanist Knutsford. Perhaps Moxie will see you again soon…
Alderley Edge always has a feeling of the mystical and magical about it, so we were incredibly excited to be invited to Mingle at Alderley’s Alchemist. The Alchemist opened last Autumn, completely transforming the Grill on the Edge into a real destination, and marking the Alchemist’s first real venture into the suburbs instead of the city.
On Wednesday, Moxie stayed local in the early evening sunshine and headed to Bramhall’s own Mercato Italiano. Owner Ged has done the most amazing job at Mercato – with the space, the food and his team. It’s welcoming and yet coolly contemporary – and the retractable roof over the outside area is a stroke of genius!
Moxie were delighted to be invited to hold their latest Mingle at Chilli Banana in Wilmslow. Chilli Banana have been providing an authentic Thai culinary experience to their customers for the past 20 years. The restaurant is run by husband and wife team Steve and May. The story of Chilli Banana’s authentic Thai food began with May learning her mother’s cookery skills on their family farm 6,000 miles away. Their aim is to recreate the delicate Thai flavours of May’s homeland for a new generation of Cheshire families.
