UNCORKING THE CRAFTSMANSHIP OF
CHAMPAGNE IN MACAU
In an exclusive event with premium Champagne brand Perrier-Jouët,
the JW MARRIOTT MACAU took an enriching approach, immersing
attendees in the beauty and craftsmanship of French Champagne,
a passion many JW guests share. The immersive tasting event, held
at The Lounge, was led by Perrier-Jouët Brand Ambassador Marie
Alasseur, who guided guests through a 10-course menu of canapés
featuring ingredients and flavors to bring out the delicate fragrance
of the golden sparkling wine. JW and Perrier-Jouët plan to continue
their instructive partnership with a class on artful floral arrangements,
which also capture the floral aromas of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque.

GROSVENOR HOUSE PROUD TO HOST
PRIDE OF BRITAIN AWARDS
For the sixth consecutive year, the JW MARRIOTT LONDON
GROSVENOR HOUSE rolled out the red carpet for the Pride of
Britain Awards, which it was honored to host in the hotel’s Great
Room. The biggest event of its kind in the UK since it debuted in
1999, the televised awards show honors unsung heroes and attracts
many A-list celebrities who, like presenters David Beckham and
Simon Cowell, attend to celebrate the achievements of these truly
remarkable people. From a first-responder team that rescued a
severely injured passenger from a disabled rollercoaster to an
11-year-old boy who used CPR to save his dad’s life, the diverse
group of heroes enjoyed being the true stars of the night.
Presenter David Beckham was there to honor the heroes.
