I’ve never been to Vegas and I’ve never been to the Milton Club, but an invite from Thomas Cook Airlines to celebrate their new direct flights to Vegas sorted both of those things right out, well almost.
After ‘checking in’ with my friends Linzi and Helen we were greeted by a Britney Spears look alike and treated to a Viva Las Vegas, my favourite signature cocktail of the evening. The recipe should you wish to try it at home was a delicious blend of Prosecco, pomegranate seeds, elderflower and grenadine. I’ve always been a fan of elderflower flavours but this drink really took the biscuit. I’ll certainly be splashing out on the ingredients and making my own soon.
We had a chance to look around the venue which had been set up with a roulette table, those who know me know I enjoy a bit of a game of this and we quickly took to the table. We were later joined by Britney Spears which was a bit of a surreal experience but it just goes to show that anything can happen in Vegas. I consequently ended up losing my chips but didn’t mind as I was too busy taking in the atmosphere.
The Milton Club is a beautiful decadent venue, really classy filled with dark wooden interiors and glamorous soft lighting. If the cocktails on the night were anything to go by this would be a fantastic venue to have a girly cocktail night. It’s the type of place you would want to get dressed up for and has the same kind of atmosphere as the Alchemist which is situated not far away in Spinningfields.
After we had a few more cocktails we went and had a makeover with the two make-up artists who were there. Helen went for the ombre lips which looked absolutely stunning on her and Linzi who was rocking a fabulous glitter jumpsuit decided to go for the glitter lashes.
There was also a photo booth and as you can see we made the most of it.
I think Thomas Cook did a fantastic job of bringing a bit of Vegas to Manchester and has made me want to go even more than I did already. If you are thinking of going there yourself with direct flights there several times a week you should check out their flight deals and more information about travelling to Las Vegas.
Thank you again to everyone at Thomas Cook Airlines for inviting me along I had brilliant time.
