Watch: A European adventure in our very own city — see inside our exclusive evening with Bulgari and Euro

With the opportunity to travel to far-flung European destinations still off the agenda, on a seasonably crisp evening in early July, Denizen gathered together a small group of adventurers, eager for a sense of freedom in two of Europe’s most desirable destinations.

With no passport required, just a requirement to dress for a glamorous night of European-style indulgence, the group arrived in Rome for aperitivo hour in Bulgari’s Queen street boutique where a selection of exquisite high jewellery had been flown in especially for our guests. From there, chariots in the form of a fleet of Maseratis transported the revellers to the cobbled streets of Paris’ Rue St Honore, where at Euro a seated, French-inspired banquet paired with French wines was enjoyed.

And as most evenings in Europe tend to unfold, Champagne flowed and dancing ensued until the wee hours, and successfully reminded us that while we still can’t travel further afield, there is plenty of beauty and decadence within reach on our very own doorstep.
