Tuck into The Feast on Thursday 17 October – 7:30-9:30pm – with friends and tickle your taste buds with a medley of epicurean delights in a banquet style set-up consisting of Hendrick’s inspired dishes, such as a Hendrick’s Gin and tonic cured salmon, grilled New Zealand lamb chops and pan roasted chicken breast with truffle mash potato. Whet your whistle with free-flow of juniper infused libations presented by a world class mixologist.
Friday 18 October sees a double dose of cucumber entertainment and green-fingered fans across Dubai will unite to enjoy a quintessential High-Tea – served 3-5pm.
