Thank You For Attending Our Business Mixer
What a successful business mixer we had at the rooftop of The London West Hollywood Hotel this Wednesday! This was by far our most popular business mixer yet and it is great to see our network growing. Everyone seemed to enjoy mingling with old friends and making new contacts while sipping on cocktails and listening to the DJ who created just the right relaxed vibe for the night. The London’s 10th floor rooftop has spectacular views all the way from Downtown to The Getty Center, which may also be one of the reasons why the mixer went on all night, far longer than expected…
