Last week I went along to the opening night of Moxy Hotel at Aberdeen Airport. The night was full of cocktails, food, bag pipes and pillow fights… and more cocktails.
Marriott’s newest brand, Moxy is a chain of affordable boutique style hotels which are designed to accommodate the millennial traveler. The design of Moxy hotels is very quirky and modern. The brand was created in 2013 in Europe and then traveled across to the States in 2015. Now there is Moxy’s popping up in more locations, such as there first ever Moxy in the UK being launched here in Aberdeen (lucky us)!
The launch night was incredibly fun which definitely showcased what the Moxy brand is all about. The night was kicked off with a glass of fizz while watching people get tattoo’s (yes, they were real). Some even went for ‘#atthemoxy’… major dedication! There was also some live art going on throughout the night.
We then moved onto some wine, followed by numerous cocktails, finishing off with some beer from Fierce Beer which is a local brewer in Dyce! We tried ‘Day Shift’, a pale ale which is so nice, highly recommend it if you aren’t a usual beer drinker like myself. I think it’s safe to say we definitely made great use of the free bar…
Along with the amazing drinks was a fantastic selection of food! Fresh Mex and The Bay fish and chip shop’s ‘On the Road’ van were on hand providing great grub. Not forgetting about the cute wee pop up tuck shop!
The amazing Red Hot Chilli Pipers made an appearance during the night. They played a great set which got everyone dancing!
On the 3rd floor of the hotel there were 3 rooms open for us to have a nosey in! One of the rooms was full of balloons, another had a singer and a guitar and the last one had a huge pillow fight going on…
Can we also just take a minute to appreciate their toilet signs… it’s the little things!
I loved the launch night so much, it was great to see so many people celebrating such a creative and vibrant hotel here in Aberdeen and also seeing a few local businesses being promoted there as well. Moxy definitely know how to throw a launch party… if only they could do it all again! Please visit Moxy Hotels website for more details.
