A few years later I had a wedding party in the private dining room at The Hempel, back then the restaurant was called I-Thai (a mixture of Italian and Thai)... fast forward 12 years and here I am again. I-Thai has closed and a gallery space now takes it's place. There's now a bar (No. 31) and a restaurant (No. 35) - both just off the main reception area.... other than that the hotel remains the same.
