Last night, GrandLife Hotels and My Beautiful City hosted THIS IS NEW YORK at Mahiki in London.

DJ Tennessee Thomas kicked off the night by bringing her special style of groove to the exclusive nightclub, readying revelers for a night of dancing and letting loose. With free-flowing cocktails and an excitable crowd, the extravagant party continued with sounds by Harley V.Newton, The Misshapes and ended with the imitable Nancy Whang (LCD Soundystem, the Juan MacLean).

There were impromptu performances and reunions aplenty as GrandLife injected a taste of NYC style and energy into the London scene, and provided the London Fashion Week fashion set with a well deserved ‘time out’ from the hustle and bustle of the shows.

Hosts included Alexa Chung, Derek Blasberg, Erik Madigan Heck, Robin Scott-Lawson, Justin O’Shea, Susie Bubble, Phil Oh, Alicia Polmanteer, Craig Arend, Candice Lake, Tommy Ton and Tommy Saleh.

THIS IS NEW YORK was a raging success and certainly a night to remember with a bevy of special guests including: Hamish Bowles (Vogue), Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), Kate Lanphear (Elle USA), Atlanta De Cadenet (Actress), Martina Topley-Bird (Singer), Mia Moretti (DJ), Percy Parker (PPQ), Mikael Schiller (Acne), Mickey Boardman (Paper Magazine), Dree Hemingway (Model), Yang Li (Designer), Daniel Thawley (A Magazine), Garance Dore (Photographer), James Lavelle (Unkle).
