A long awaited Night Out, be it with colleagues or pals, is one of life’s pleasures. The time of year when photocopiers and dares should potentially be avoided so here’s how to make it a relaxed evening to remember.
Make your Celebration Easy – The biggest headache about a night out is getting home at the end of it. Clubbing together for an apartment is often cheaper than individual taxis, it’s also far more relaxing as you can choose to go home whenever you wish. No more cancelled or delayed cabs, no more trying to gather your crew together at the appointed hour, no more leaving a night out just as you’re actually getting into it, or wishing you’d booked the taxi an hour earlier, no more queuing or trying to flag down a cab along with half the city’s population. Your night out is under your control.
Skene House Apartment Hotels are located in central, well lit locations, close to the city’s bars, restaurants and night clubs. Its receptions are manned 24 hours a day so you return to a safe, homely environment. With one, two or three bedroom apartments, guests have their own room with the added benefit of a kitchen and living area.
Getting Ready – Getting ‘party ready’ at Skene House is a pleasure. Rather than commute home, get changed, only to commute back into the city and try to find parking, why not simply check in with your friends and kick back. Put your tipple in the fridge to keep it cool, enjoy a free drink at the Whitehall and Holburn properties then head to your apartment to glam up. Getting ready for a night out with a group of pals can be the highlight of the evening!
Having the space to prepare, taking time over a manicure, or just relaxing in the living room is a real joy for those with busy lives and households. With ample free parking at Skene House the car isn’t an issue either.
Treat Yourself – For those essential last minute manicures, spray tans, up-dos or barber visits then here are the top recommendations nearby.
Skene House Rosemount – There are rich pickings when it comes to hair and beauty in this area but highlights include James Dun’s House and Ispiro on Schoolhill, Zuri Hair and Beauty in the Academy Shopping Centre and Beautylicious on Rosemount Viaduct. For a new barber shop try the wonderful Mr Dun on Belmont Street.
Skene House Holburn – Again, lots of big names within walking distance. Saks and Toni&Guy have salons on Union Street. Local enterprises Na Na Nail Studio and Hatstand Nelly can be booked for beauty treatments on Holburn Street. The House on Great Western Road is a luxurious spa option if you wish to indulge. And for the men Master Cut barbers on Holburn Street and the Men’s Emporium on Thistle Street will smarten up your evening.
Skene House Whitehall – There’s lots to choose from on Rosemount Place including the Barber’s Pole, Simply Bliss beauty salon, Oxygen hairdressing or Cach-ca hair studio. Hombre barber is about a ten minute walk away on Beechgrove Terrace, and Scott Holliman hair is nearby on Leadside Road.
The Day After the Night Before – Skene House guests receive a complimentary breakfast in the morning. If you desire a strong coffee first thing, make it in the privacy of your apartment kitchen and return to bed, then wander down for breakfast at a more civilised hour. For those with young families at home the merits of an uninterrupted night’s sleep, and even a potential lie in the next morning, cannot be understated!
After a great night out, then a restful overnight at Skene House, all that’s left to do is return home with some great stories…
