LONDON - Galvin at Windows, the Michelin-starred restaurant and bar on the 28th floor of Hilton London on Park Lane, has recently launched a new diner-focused, experiential website at galvinatwindows.com. The site was created by leading creative agency Milton Bayer and incorporates practical features like online booking and menu previews, with compelling, interactive content and social media linkups to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and its own news feed ‘Le Blog.’

In addition to functionality, galvinatwindows.com visually recreates the uniqueness of the restaurant’s location and a true sense of its personality through extensive imagery and profiles of key staff. Short videos showcase the bar team’s cocktail making skills, while head chef André Garrett shares some of his recipe secrets. An interactive blog, enabling the restaurant to connect with diners and other users interested in haute cuisine, enables Galvin at Windows to further promote specific events and news.

Head of digital at Milton Bayer, Natasha Riley, said, "Our objective in redesigning the website was to evoke the unique look and feel of Galvin at Windows. No other London restaurant can surpass its city views, so recreating its panoramic experience and 1930s ‘film set’ glamour was a priority, as was creating a light, airy backdrop to reflect the experiential feeling of being 28 floors up. Of equal importance was communicating the restaurant’s personality, its approachability, so site visitors can expect greater interaction using video, blogging and social networking. It was a privilege to work on a project that lent itself so beautifully to visual design."

Galvin at Windows celebrates its fifth year in 2011 and continues to focus on greater interaction with past and present diners, as well as gastronomy fans who are yet to visit. Key objectives to achieve this are growing the restaurants presence in the social media scene through Facebook and Twitter, as well as growing its customer database in order for followers to be kept informed of offers, events and other news.

Galvin at Windows restaurant & bar is located on the 28th floor of Hilton London on Park Lane, 22 Park Lane, London W1. For reservations or more information, please call 020 7208 4021, or visit www.galvinatwindows.com.
