W Lounge Review

My Opinions:  The bar scene is quite fun (even after all these months) and boasts an interesting mix of well-dressed local professionals, travelers, and socialites.

The drinks are decent with a stocked bar of all the higher-end bottles, and the service is great if you sit at the bar, but expect to wait if you're at one of the lounge tables or couches. The food is tasty, and it's nice that you can order Market's restaurant menu in addition to the bar bites.

To note: the valet pricing has become more reasonable! Make sure you get your ticket validated if you eat here for a reduced price.

Desirability: 5 of 6 acclamations

     Try:  Salmon Sashimi - Scallop Sashimi
     Skip:  Desert

Some Food/Drink Tasted:  Shrimp Salad - Salmon Sashimi - Scallop Sashimi - Lobster Pizza - Cheddar Fritters - Truffle Fontina Pizza – Mozzarella Pizza - Rice Tuna - Cookies and Confections – MARKET Cheeseburger – Warm Chocolate Cake

Marketing Through Events

I'm featured as the Extraordinary Entrepreneur on One Million Entrepreneurs! Please visit the article and be sure to "Like" it. You can also read my Profile below:


Fleur Irisee is a consulting company that started off in business development for early-stage companies and has grown in a unique way – we now have an event management division. Though not always obvious, there is a strong synergy between marketing plans and event management, and through organizing social gatherings, corporate events and private parties, the demand grew and, in turn, grew the Company. - Kristin Kim

Go “all-in” when starting your business, but be sure not to take on more work than you can handle.

What do you love most about your business?
I love getting people what they want and seeing my added-value pay off. I have met so many energetic entrepreneurs, top-notch vendors and successful New Englanders who have great vision and just need help executing it. Seeing the final product is so rewarding and seeing the client happy is invigorating!

What advice can you share with aspiring entrepreneurs?
My advice is to go “all-in” when starting your business, but be sure not to take on more work than you can handle. I see a lot of self-starters over market themselves, over promise results, and under value their contracts. If you cannot handle the demand that your buzz generates, and deadlines are being missed, people will give you poor reviews and it is a quick start to a bad reputation. Also, if you do not price your work fairly (some simple competitive analysis can give you a good guideline) you may be sinking your own ship since you won’t be able to financially stay afloat as you gain traction.
