It was another new venue for Felix and Fingers when we went to Des Moines, Iowa to play at The Tea Room corporate event. The Tea Room was the setting for the Federal Home Loan Leadership Summit. Federal Home Loan’s employees came from 13 states for the summit which was perfectly suited for mingling, networking, and most importantly, having a good time!
The Tea Room Corporate Event
For starters, let’s discuss this venue. Less than a year old, this iconic venue is a treasure for downtown Des Moines. You’ll find The Tea Room on the 6th floor of an old building downtown. In fact, you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time when you notice the 1920’s architecture. But don’t worry, while the renovations kept the historic integrity intact, the room itself is stunning and modern. In addition, it boasts these beautiful large windows and a well lit full stage. It truly is a beautiful venue. Congratulations to Des Moines on having your iconic and historic tea room returned to its former glory. If you’re thinking of hosting a corporate event, wedding, fund raiser or any get together, The Tea Room should be on your list of places to check out. And you can do so by clicking here.
The catering company for this Federal Home Loan Leadership Summit is also a local treasure. They put out a beautiful spread of artisan cheeses. Also, there were excellent small plate styles of braised short ribs and and shrimp etouffee. And dessert was quite good too. Absolutely delicious! If you need a caterer in Des Moines, we highly recommend this group. You can access their website by clicking here.
It’s All About The Audience
Here at Felix, we are experts at reading the room. It’s our job. And we could tell this party was meant more for mingling and networking as opposed to the wild dance parties we sometimes play for. Sometimes the focus is not on us and we’re okay with that. Of course, people wanted to listen to our great entertainment and sing along, but they were also there to network and we respected that. We have to say though that sometimes we’re just irresistible. We even heard people singing along from the tables all the way across the room. And by the end of the evening, everyone joined together to close out the evening singing along to Billy Joel’s Piano Man.
We loved discovering a new venue at The Tea Room Corporate Event. This Federal Home Loan Leadership Summit was a success due to the combination of an awesome venue, exquisite catering, and of course, Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos.
