Set against the refined backdrop of Knightsbridge, the Grosvenor Casino Park Tower played host to a tastefully crafted evening by Verve Rally.
Arrival and Acknowledgements
Upon their entrance, guests were immediately greeted by Bond, James Bond, for a photo in front of the media wall, showcasing Verve Rally’s esteemed sponsors. This became a popular photo spot, especially since it was Daniel Craig’s body double they were taking photos with.
Guests were then directed upstairs to the restaurant that was privatised for the champagne reception and a magnificent champagne tower and ceremony.
Nikki Barrett, representing Grosvenor Casinos, welcomed everyone with a few poignant words that set the tone for the evening.
A Gentleman’s Game and Mission
The excitement was elevated when Bond shared the evening’s secret mission.
In his unmistakably suave manner, he declared:
“Agents, your mission tonight is to accumulate the most winnings on the Blackjack and Roulette tables.”
At the end of the tournament, the top performers will be walking away with tantalising prizes and a recommendation for field duty, a chance to live a life full of adventure.
His briefing was clear and the games begun.
Melodies with Kate
Throughout the evening, the ambient tunes from Kate’s electric violin added a layer of charm. Her performance gracefully threaded through the conversations and laughter, enhancing the mood of the room.

Peek into the Near Future
Attention was momentarily directed to the upcoming 2024 routes, with the new teaser video for the Croatia Rally that was unveiled. The supercar rally that’s scheduled for September 7-11, 2024, promises to be another noteworthy chapter in Verve Rally’s legacy.
And the winner’s are …
The night reached its climax as the results were announced. After intense rounds at the tables, Irina Drobot, Mark Periklis, Suzanna Nour, Twisha Patel, and Kai Kayne emerged as the top performers, proving their mettle in the high-stakes world of espionage-themed gaming.
But the awards didn’t stop there. The spotlight turned to the best-dressed of the night – Sian Hughes Cooke and Ben Kaminsky, whose outfits exuded both style and sophistication, fitting for an agent at His Majesty’s service.
A Fine Close
With a harmonious blend of camaraderie, anticipation for future events, and the charm of the evening’s setting, guests left the Grosvenor Casino Park Tower with fond memories of a delightful night out and some new skills on the gaming tables.
Big thanks to Grosvenor Casinos for their unwavering support and for a fabulous night. Park Tower’s reputation for elegance and excitement mirrors what Verve Rally represents, and their partnership was instrumental in making the evening a roaring success.
