Party People: 360 Degrees of Fun

Pictured L to R: Sophie Ellis Bextor, Richard Jones, Liam Cunningham and Jackie Brannigan.

Not since our first visit to the Reina Sofia in Madrid have we seen such a trendy gallery space as the Royal Hibernian Academy on Ely Place in Dublin 2.  OK, so the scale and size is not the same but word has it that the RHA does a pretty mean coffee too and we haven’t even mentioned the art yet.

The white walls, high ceilings and contemporary minimalism made it the perfect venue for the uber cool launch of the Xbox 360 Kinect last Wednesday.

Crowds of socialites, gamers, bloggers and journalists swilled wine and got to grips with white water rafting and playing table tennis, all virtually dontcha know.

What She Ate: Spanish omelette, manchego cheese and other tantalizing tapas served up by The Port House

What She Drank: Red & white wine (Spanish, of course)

What She Saw: Sophie Ellis Bextor playing a DJ set with her husband Richard Jones from The Feeling ( her manager refused to grant WSW a photo opp!),  while actor Liam Cunningham and his two sons got down and dirty with the game.

What She Wore: Check out the social pics below
