Legendary Party Chinawhite Returns to the Henley for 2023, bringing Great Food, Bars and Entertainment with International Headline DJ’s to the Royal Regatta
Just recently, we attended a fun day out to catch all the live action of the annual prestigious rowing event on the riverbanks of Henley on Thames for Henley Royal Regatta. Have you been before, would love to hear about your experiences of attending the Regatta and did you enjoy it and which part did you love the most?
HOW TO SPEND THE DAY AT HENLEY
(Gifted Experience) This year’s Regatta for me was quite a special occasion I’ll never forget just because I was invited as a VIP guest by renowned nightclub brand Chinawhite London to host me for the day. I just couldn’t say no and it was a fantastic opportunity to kick start my summer in style for sporting events. Who doesn’t love to get all dressed up for race days.
So, my day begins waking up bright and early just because there were disruptions with trains that morning which is common over the summer period on strike days. I found this quite annoying, but you just get on with it and plan your day and travel itinerary. Also, plus the added stress of traveling to and from home to your destination so always leave extra time to plan your journey.
Welcome to Henley on Thames in Oxfordshire
So after I set off from home to Henley on Thames by train, 2.5 hours later I arrive at Henley Station to meet friends and could not wait for all the excitement and celebrations to begin.
I think the best time to arrive in Henley is 12 midday at least then you can relax and have a spot of lunch by the river before enjoying the rest of your day. After an enjoyable lunch and drinks at The Angel on the bridge pub we had booked a boat ride as a group with boat charter company One Atlantek to arrange pick up and drop off at our enclosure for Chinawhite Henley.
Experience local Regatta Traditions Aboard a Boat to get closer to all the Elite Rowing Action with your own private charter
For me, the private boat charter ride was the best part as you really felt included in all the traditional aspects of the Regatta amongst local residents and visitors.
My friends and I rather enjoyed watching all the live action of the races from afar on the other side of the river as we sipped champagne from our flutes to watch the day go by passing the official Stewards Enclosure’s race start line.
I highly recommend booking a boat ride just because it’s very stylish to arrive in style to your enclosure this way, plus the added bonus not having to walk from Henley Bridge all the way down the riverbank is at least a good 25 mins.
The Only Way to Travel in Style during the Regatta is by Boat
So once you are done with your boat ride excursion it’s almost time to head into your pre-booked private enclosure at Henley Royal Regatta. As soon as our boat dropped us off at the Chinawhite Henley Enclosure at Temple Island it was time to check in at the Press VIP Area. Then, immediately greeted by our friendly hostess and waiter who took us to our table in the secluded VIP area tent. There’s was not much of a wait at all to get inside and to our astonishment we found out the nightclub had offered us a very generous bar tab to our surprise was even better, plus food tokens to enjoy our day. We were extremely well looked after by their staff and the service was second to none and really impressed with this years venue.
Our VIP Chinawhite Experience
After dinner it was time to hit the dance floor and do a bit more exploring and mingling with the crowd for the after party in the main nightclub marquee. The vibe was high octane glamour, minimal white interiors with drapes which transported you to Ibiza, St Tropez or Mykonos for a summer of fun. The energy in the nightclub was very lively as we danced to TOP 40 tunes by Chinawhite’s Resident Special Guest DJ’s as the main headliner to close Henley in style.
We also, did a bit of Celeb spotting as we noticed there were a few A-lister’s to a mixture of Reality TV stars attending as VIP’s for the event. The VIP Tent was handy when we wanted to take a break from the nightclub and just relax on our table for the evening over some quiet drinks for a moment of peace. Overall, my experience of the Chinawhite Henley enclosure has always been a pleasant experience even on previous visits other years I’ve attended and would highly recommend booking this enclosure at Henley Royal Regatta. If you love headline DJ Artist performances in an intimate and sophisticated setting then this is your sign to think about booking this enclosure for next years Regatta, just because it’s epic.
Not forgetting there’s a curfew in Henley, as most enclosure venue shut around 12:00 past midnight. But, I almost make sure I leave slightly earlier before then to catch a train to London via Reading as you don’t want to get stuck. Perhaps stay overnight is an option to consider just in case you miss the last train.
Eventually when our evening ended it was time to head home. We arranged another pick up from our boat charter guys who gave us a lift back to the Angel on the bridge pub moorings which is a short walking distance from Henley station. It was such a relief getting a lift back in the boat as I was so tired from a long day, but it was all totally worth it and can’t wait to come back again next year. So stay tuned for me Henley content on our socials so you can follow along with us. Oh, wait I think we are back again next week for Henley Festival, and I heard it’s a Black Tie only event very decadent and discerning, so I’ll see you soon shortly.
Which social event are you most looking forward to for the summer season?
