Olympic hospitality at the heart of the City

The Retreat, the exclusive members club which is making The Brewery its home for the duration of the Olympic Games, has announced new partnerships with We Are The City and City Point Club.

We Are The City, the respected female entrepreneurial network founded by Vanessa Vallely, serves an audience of over 7000 City women and has become the de facto resource for professional women, offering advice from boardroom strategies and work life balance, to networking opportunities and dressing for success.

City Point Club is one of the most luxurious health, fitness and spa facilities in The City of London. Members of The Retreat will be given free access to the City Point Club’s facilities including its gym and swimming pool. The indulgence of the City Point Club will also be brought to the Chiswell Street venue; men can take advantage of barbers offering traditional wet shaves in barber shop chairs while female members of The Retreat can choose from a range of treatments such as manicures, facials and massages.

The partnerships will see The Retreat’s Olympic offering promoted through the far reaching networks of business figureheads of both organisations.  Host venue of The Retreat, The Brewery is the backdrop for many of the capital’s most prestigious events, and recent sightings of Kim Kardashian, Sharon Osborne and Adele are set to place The Retreat as the capital’s hot ticket.

In situ from 27th July to 12th August 2012, The Retreat comprises six distinctly luxurious areas, including The Backstage area, which will be sponsored by We are The City and The City Point Club, giving members a space to pamper, rejuvenate and transform themselves from day time business looks to glamorous evening style for a night at The Retreat’s Club.

A beautifully manicured park with a signature Champagne bar will mark the entrance to The Retreat, and a number of live acts and DJs will play into the night in The Club, which has recently announced its partnership with VIP club Mo*Vida.  A purpose built cinema will screen  British classics along with the latest updates on the Games and the markets.
