Zenna, London's first Indian cocktail bar, was fully packed with the socialites and diners from the restaurant above also came down to join the fun. Guests were treated to complimentary cocktails and canapés on arrival, before being introduced.

Sam and Mal Weeraratne, owners of the popular Büty Salon in Hammersmith & Fulham, treated guests to tress-busting massage sessions. The salon will also offer special discounts to members of Socialite Evenings networking society and are currently promoting their latest service; onsite express massages to corporate individuals. The massage was a great hit and all recipients complimented Sam and Mal on their technique and skill. Emmanuel Ray has personally tried out Büty Salon's various other treatments and highly recommended it to readers of his popular column Diary of an It Boy.

Jazz songstress Amy Heasman entertained the audience with her deep husky voice and performed both classic and new numbers. Having last performed at Socialite Evenings' The Autumn Soirée at Lord Glenconner's old town house back in November 2009, Amy Heasman received a warm welcome-back to the event. Emmanuel Ray spotted Amy Heasman singing at the Icecreamists launch party in Selfridges during London Fashion Week's 25th anniversary in September 2009. Impressed by her talent, Emmanuel Ray introduced her into his network. The socialite also confirmed the songstress will be entertaining guests at future events as well. Any Heasman has performed at the legendary Green Room Actors Club and at various other bars and clubs around London.

Guests at Socialite Evenings by Emmanuel Ray included representatives from the Independent Film Trust, the Liberal Democrats, Bloomberg, the Old London Underground Company project, film & theatre professionals, entrepreneurs, fashionistas, bankers and other corporate individuals. The event was sponsored by MM Vekaria & Co Accountants, Büty Salon & Zenna. Partners included Break London Radio, Superstar Magazine, Frost Magazine, The Style Column and Work In Fashion.

Zenna has been called the ‘best new cocktail bar in London’ by national newspapers and industry publications alike. It combines a contemporary Indian twist with classic cocktails, and features the World’s Spiciest Cocktail, called the Illiana. Decorated with azure blue walls and soft leather furnishings, Zenna is quickly becoming one of London’s hottest nightspots.

Launched in March 2009 by socialite Emmanuel Ray, Socialite Evenings is a relaxed and laid back evening where successful professionals from a variety of businesses mingle, while enjoying soft music, fun activities and personalised networking. Socialite Evenings by Emmanuel Ray is organised by Ray Clark from Crimson Edge events.
