Planning your company’s next event? Harvey Nichols can make it an event to remember at your nearest store.

Harvey Nichols can tailor your event to ensure a fun and interactive occasion for you and your guests.

Want an intimate and niche afternoon of tea and pampering? No problem. How about a team-building event with cocktail making masterclasses or food and wine tastings? Easy.

From small intimate spaces, to the exclusive hire of an entire floor, Harvey Nichols offers an unforgettable experience full of creative flair. With a variety of adaptable menus and packages available, we have something to suit every occasion.

The team at Choice Locations were lucky enough to sample this last Wednesday evening.

A group of local agents had been invited by Trident Hospitality who represents the event space at Harvey Nichols in Birmingham. On arrival we were given a glass of bubbly and then shown round the store where all the areas can be adapted to suit the requirements of the clients. Amanda and Sally then had a hand and arm massage by Elemis, before going to a gin tasting of four very different gins.

Alison and Sue then tried their hand at cocktail making and made us a delicious margarita which we all sampled.

Throughout the evening, we sampled mini fish and chips, and mini burgers along a selection of pastries and desserts.

All in all, a very good and flexible event space. Thanks Kevan and Martin from Trident Hospitality for inviting us.
