LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, a prominent boutique hotel in Central London, is proud to announce that The Luggage Room has popped up in Grosvenor Square for this year's 'Summer in the Square.'
'Summer in the Square' is an urban retreat with cultural open-air festivities near the 5-star hotel in the heart of London's West End and for the third year running has transformed Grosvenor Square into a relaxing haven with foodie pop-ups, music, comedy, events and performances open between midday and 2200hrs.
Until Saturday 19th July, Grosvenor's 'Summer in the Square' will play host to The Luggage Room's pop-up punch bar, supported by sponsors Appleton V/X, Perrier-Jouët and Pernod Ricard UK, Pierre Ferrand Cognac and Berry Bros. & Rudd. The Hyde Park luxury hotel's bar is now welcoming guests and serving classic punches & cooling cups, champagne sorbets, alcoholic lollipops and non-alcoholic treats for the more temperance minded.
For those wanting to continue the party after hours, The Luggage Room itself is located a short hop over the road. Based in the 5-star hotel's original Luggage Room near Oxford Street, the speakeasy style bar will take you back to the glamorous golden era of 1920's Mayfair. Accessing the bar via a secret door, along corridors lined with painted canvas walls and paying homage to the historical Louis Vuitton 'Trianon' finish, guests are transported into a world of decadent opulence. The Luggage Room won 'Best Bar 2013' at the Mayfair Magazine Awards.
Throwbacks to the 'Bentley Boys' are hinted to throughout the interiors. This infamous group of wealthy British motorists who drove Bentley sports cars to victory in Le Mans during the 1920s, would return victorious to London and roll majestically into the south-west corner of Grosvenor Square to park their Bentley's, before partying on until dawn. The area was once known to every 'cabbie' in London as 'Bentley Corner.'
Drawing upon the spirit of the Roaring Twenties, the bar offers an exquisite selection of heritage cocktails. From 'Sours' and 'Punches,' to 'Simulating Potations' and 'Aromatic Libations,' each one is expertly crafted using freshly squeezed juices, the finest spirits and served in authentic period glassware.
The Luggage Room is open from 1700hrs 'til late and reservations can be made at www.LuggageRoom.co.uk.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
