Moët & ChandonMoët has been the champagne of cinema for nearly a century, capturing the imagination of cinema’s brightest stars almost as soon as the film industry was born. Browsing through photos of the silver screen era’s glittering parties one is quite likely to see a bottle of Moët & Chandon. The mutual fascination between Moët and the movies is reflected in its presence at the world’s most prestigious international cinema events such as the Oscars, the Golden Globe Awards, the Cannes Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival and now The Moët British Independent Film Awards. Last year, Moët & Chandon introduced Scarlett Johansson as the first Hollywood celebrity face of champagne. In short, Moët & Chandon is where the movies are, from Hollywood to international film festivals and events around the world.
Moët & Chandon is delighted to toast the achievements of the British Film Industry and support its most talented members.

St Martins LaneFrom its dazzling location at the hub of Covent Garden, West End theatres and Trafalgar Square, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring reinvention of the urban resort. Smart, witty and sophisticated, Philippe Starck’s design is a brilliant collision of influences - from the modern to the baroque - that suffuses the hotel with energy, vitality and magic. Entered through improbably tall, luminescent yellow-glass revolving doors—the tallest in London—St Martins Lane’s lobby is a soaring and theatrical space that offers a provocative manipulation of dimension and proportion. Starck presents a visually stunning play on scale, with oversized columns and angled niches painted a deep fluorescent yellow, complemented by Portuguese limestone floors. From its acid-etched, double-height yellow glass facade to its unpredictable plays on vivid colour to the dramatic series of columns that appear as shining towers, St Martins Lane’s lobby is a triumph of colour and light.
