Last Thursday (18th November) Flemings Hotel was thrilled to play host to the launch of the Central Illustration Agency’s debut book ‘License to Inspire’. Flemings Cocktail Bar witnessed the great and the good of the art world come together to celebrate the CIA’s first publication, a culmination of 27 years artistic license in becoming one of the largest illustration agencies in the world.
Ensuring nobody was left with an empty glass, the Flemings bar staff was on hand to top up everyone’s tipple and guarantee another smoothly run event held at the Flemings cocktail bar.
The CIA kindly donated five copies of ‘License to Inspire’ which will be proudly displayed in Flemings’ signature suite, The Aria.
As stalwart art supporters, Flemings hotel has an exclusive partnership with Berkley Street’s boutique gallery, The Fleming Collection supporting Scottish artists The Glasgow Boys with an exclusive hotel tie in. The package includes an artistic afternoon with a private guided tour around the Fleming Collection’s 19th Century set, including pieces by great artists such as Joseph Crawhall, Sir James Guthrie, amongst others and finishing with tea in Flemings’ flamboyant front room. Guests can enjoy Dammann Frères teas and delectable Primrose Bakery cupcakes, whilst enjoying the hotel’s wonderfully artistic backdrop followed by a night in one of Flemings’ luxury rooms.

As stalwart art supporters , the Flemings front room currently boasts ‘Mainly Tulips’ – a piece by Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, kindly lent to Flemings by the Scottish Gallery.
