Philadelphia 76ers Amir Johnson and Ben Simmons were among the notables who popped up at a unique #FourSeasonsPopDown in Philly this week.
High atop the former Edward T. Bok Technical High School — with the future Four Seasons Comcast Center on view in the distance — Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts hosted an energetic evening event, the second in a global series of immersive experiences showcasing the luxury hotel’s brand.
This event “marks our reentry into this great city,” said J. Allen Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “What you see in the distance is the tallest building in the city of Philadelphia… a state of the art building in all respects…. that will be the best hotel in all of Philadelphia and [which will] rival any hotel around the world.”
Throughout the evening, guests interacted with an international roster of Four Seasons talent in a celebration of the creative energy of the City of Brotherly Love.
Experiences included tastes by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Philadelphia celebrity Chef Greg Vernick – both introducing new restaurants at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center – as well as florist Jeff Leatham, Artistic Director of Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center, pastry chef to the stars Chris Ford of Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills, (A Four Seasons Hotel), Sweet Genius winner Lasheeda Perry of Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, Lorenzo Sollecito, Executive Pastry Chef of Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta, Executive Chef of Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center Maxime Michaud, and cocktail connoisseurs Sarah Rahl, Valentino Longo, and Mariano Ricciari, Head Bartenders of Four Seasons Hotel Austin, Four Seasons Hotel the Surf Club, and Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre, respectively.
And it wouldn’t be a celebration of all things Philadelphia without a soundtrack of beats from DJ Jazzy Jeff.
