Grand Slam Tennis Tours’ Hospitality House
Our Hospitality House is a private event space just a short walk from the All-England Club gates. Fully-staffed throughout the fortnight, it’s where we host all of our guests and friends. Whether it’s to sit and enjoy brunch in the garden, to drop off a jacket before you hustle off to tennis, or to relax with a post-match WhistlePig cocktail, the Hospitality House is made for it all.
Whistlepig comes to Wimbledon
This July we’re excited to enrich our guest experience by having WhistlePig Whiskey join us as a Hospitality House partner. The House will offer signature cocktails featuring their world-class rye, and give guests an opportunity to explore one of America’s finest whiskey products at the world’s most famous tennis event. Plus, you’ll have the chance to try our signature cocktail, the Centre Court:
- Muddle two strawberries.
- Throw in four nice pieces of mint, then add:
- 3/4 oz lemon
- 3/4 oz simple syrup
- 2oz Farmstock 002
Shake and strain over fresh ice. Garnish with mint sprig and half a strawberry.
Gourmet food by a private chef
Food is provided by London-based chef Milli Taylor. Milli joins us every day to prepare brunch and afternoon tea, beautiful bowls of strawberries and cream, and special items highlighting WhistlePig rye.
Tickets, brunch, and relaxation
In the morning, guests are welcome anytime after 10 am to collect their daily tickets and enjoy brunch in the garden or indoors. Some guests stay into the late morning to kick off the matches on TV before leisurely joining the Centre Court crowd, while others like to be the first through the gates when they open. Since Wimbledon allows re-entry, guests often drop by in between matches. This may be for a quick drink, to have a snack in the garden, or to shed their jacket if the day has warmed up. Moreover, if you’ve made an appointment to play tennis with a GSTT pro at the local courts, you’re more than welcome to shower and change upstairs.
Yonex racquets and apparel
This year, the Hospitality House’s featured artist is Craig Mooney. Mooney’s paintings showcase dramatic moments and heightened emotionality, and are known for being expansive and expressive. Though a representational painter, he incorporates a myriad of abstract qualities throughout his paintings. In his figurative work, Mooney romanticizes his subjects and presents them in an atmospheric lens that is best described as dreamlike. His father, a physician and amateur artist, taught him how to create oil paintings from discarded art supplies found on city streets in midtown Manhattan. Craig is represented in galleries throughout the US and UK.
Wimbledon is a place where our partnership with Topnotch Management is able to elevate the experiences we create. This past year, guests came home after evening matches to find Sam [Querrey] and Steve [Johnson] eating BBQ chicken and relaxing in the backyard. Then, the next day, those very same guests sat in official Debenture seats to watch Sam and Steve play on Centre Court. Upon returning to the Hospitality House, Fred Stolle was on the couch having a sandwich and talking about the match. These are not standard tourism experiences, which is exactly as intended.
