LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, a prominent boutique hotel in Central London, is proud to announce that The Luggage Room has popped up in Grosvenor Square for this year's 'Summer in the Square.'
'Summer in the Square' is an urban retreat with cultural open-air festivities near the 5-star hotel in the heart of London's West End and for the third year running has transformed Grosvenor Square into a relaxing haven with foodie pop-ups, music, comedy, events and performances open between midday and 2200hrs.
Until Saturday 19th July, Grosvenor's 'Summer in the Square' will play host to The Luggage Room's pop-up punch bar, supported by sponsors Appleton V/X, Perrier-Jouët and Pernod Ricard UK, Pierre Ferrand Cognac and Berry Bros. & Rudd. The Hyde Park luxury hotel's bar is now welcoming guests and serving classic punches & cooling cups, champagne sorbets, alcoholic lollipops and non-alcoholic treats for the more temperance minded.
For those wanting to continue the party after hours, The Luggage Room itself is located a short hop over the road. Based in the 5-star hotel's original Luggage Room near Oxford Street, the speakeasy style bar will take you back to the glamorous golden era of 1920's Mayfair. Accessing the bar via a secret door, along corridors lined with painted canvas walls and paying homage to the historical Louis Vuitton 'Trianon' finish, guests are transported into a world of decadent opulence. The Luggage Room won 'Best Bar 2013' at the Mayfair Magazine Awards.
Throwbacks to the 'Bentley Boys' are hinted to throughout the interiors. This infamous group of wealthy British motorists who drove Bentley sports cars to victory in Le Mans during the 1920s, would return victorious to London and roll majestically into the south-west corner of Grosvenor Square to park their Bentley's, before partying on until dawn. The area was once known to every 'cabbie' in London as 'Bentley Corner.'
Drawing upon the spirit of the Roaring Twenties, the bar offers an exquisite selection of heritage cocktails. From 'Sours' and 'Punches,' to 'Simulating Potations' and 'Aromatic Libations,' each one is expertly crafted using freshly squeezed juices, the finest spirits and served in authentic period glassware.
The Luggage Room is open from 1700hrs 'til late and reservations can be made at www.LuggageRoom.co.uk.

However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
