The Savoy, A Fairmont managed Hotel, has always welcomed the most talented of artists to entertain guests and has recently launched Jazz Fridays, a new weekly evening of musical entertainment in the Thames Foyer.
Renowned as the vibrant heart of the hotel, the Thames Foyer is most famous for welcoming guests for one of the most impressive afternoon teas in London. Now, as day becomes night, the atmosphere in this magnificent glass domed atrium takes on a more sultry tone, transforming into a candlelit setting reminiscent of the 1920s jazz age.
Performer Nicola Emmanuelle brings her own contemporary and iconic style to the work and sound of the original jazz pioneers of the 30s, 40s and 50s, entertaining guests with renditions of some of the all time jazz greats. Evolving from a South African jazz dynasty and classical jazz background, Emmanuelle has been involved with several renowned artists, producers and directors as well as writing her own new material. Jazz aficionados, entertainment seekers and guests of the hotel alike, will be able to immerse themselves in a hue of musical brilliance at this regular jazz night, performed by a distinguished talent in the industry.
Accompanied by her talented pianist, Emmanuelle will play three sets beginning at 8pm and running through to 11pm every Friday for guests enjoying a relaxed evening of drinks, dinner or dessert and cocktail pairing in the Thames Foyer.
