February brings with it the season of love and the Year of the Dragon. From date nights to Lunar New Year gifting, The Royal Exchange is here to take your breath away.
Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches. Indulge in the food of love across our fabulous eateries to make a date night for the ages — from breakfast at Parisian patisserie Ladurée, followed by a heart-melting menu of romantic dishes at Fortnum’s. You’ll be enchanted by an evening of beautiful live music — and the stunning neoclassical backdrop of The Royal Exchange itself.
Before the day comes around (always sooner than you think!) make sure to pick out that all-important Valentine’s Day gift from one of our luxury brands. Such is the range of activations this year that you’ll be spoilt for choice. Never fear: we’re here to help with a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, where we’ve picked out the best of the best — from gemstones and jewellery to sure-fire gifting successes.
February, too, means Lunar New Year, and with it an especially auspicious animal of the zodiac. The Year of the Dragon brings courage, luck and health — make the most of it with the events and releases from global luxury: including a selection of vintages from Silver Heights, “one of China’s most exciting boutique wineries” (The Buyer).
We are also very proud to welcome Salad Kitchen as the freshest new addition to our family of retailers.
Finally, congratulations to Yvonne Goff Courtney (founder of our resident “distilled clothing” label of the same name) for her recent team-up with the Barbican — and becoming a finalist in the Barbour x British Vogue Centenary Design Competition.
