 Members of the Anvil Business Club (Association of Young Filipino-Chinese Entrepreneurs) painted the town red at the "Hennessy Artistry Halo" event – the biggest "by-invite-only" music party of the year, in no less than the super-exclusive Valkyrie Night Club – the country's newest, hottest and biggest boutique club with over a thousand people in attendance.
Coined as an "explosion of musical artistry, innovation and refreshing mixed drinks," the party was hosted by the Moët Hennessy Asia-Pacific Pacific Pte. Ltd. – the company that produces and distributes the world's largest luxury Cognac brand – in celebration of Hennessy's 250th Founding Anniversary this year.
Despite the horrendous Friday evening traffic, exacerbated by the atrociously limited parking space and the hopelessly overcrowded venue (guests had to wait at
least an hour in line just to register, not to mention that doors were opened belatedly at 10:00 PM), the long wait was worth the hassle: The party was top-billed by Australia's electronic dance music’s first sisters – Mim and Liv Nervo of NERVO – multi-talented DJ dynamos now dubbed as the all-time top-ranking female DJs in the world. And they were supported by an array of top local acts, including UP Dharma Down, Motherbasss, Abdel Aziz, Quest, Silverfilter, and Kat DJ – all of whom continued to bring the house down until the wee hours of the morning.
Amid overflowing bottles of Hennessy's best-selling variants – V.S.O.P., X.O., Paradis, Prive, and Imperial – Anvil members were whisked to one of the club's exclusive VIP rooms and had a grand time mingling with mostly twenty-something clubbers and nightlife veterans, as they danced to the tune of today's Indie rock, Post rock, experimental rock, pop rock, shoegazing, electronic rock favorites. The Anvil members were so highly-regarded in that event that even Steven Bullock, Regional Director and Head of Moët Hennessy Asia-Pacific Pacific Pte. Ltd., took time from his busy schedule to spend time with the group.
Kudos to Anvil member and Liquor Kingdom's Rudy Ngo for arranging this exclusive, "by-invitation-only" event for the Anvil members.
Valkyrie Night Club at The Palace is a new nightlife destination by the group that brought you some of Manila’s best clubs such as Embassy/Encore, Members Only, Manor, Prive, Republiq, Opus, 71 Gramercy, Universe, etc. Once fully finished the complex will be the biggest nightlife complex in the country with room for 10,000 clubbers.
Jas Hennessy & Co., or more simply Hennessy, is a cognac house with headquarters in Cognac, France. Today, the company of Jas Hennessy & Co. sells about 50 million bottles a year worldwide, or more than 40 percent of the world’s Cognac, making it the world's largest Cognac producer. It is owned by Moët Hennessy.
