RIDE EASY SPEAKEASY

Available nightly at Seabar

Pull up a pouf, take a seat, or swing your legs over the ocean at our Speakeasy Cocktail Bar where oft played – and poured – classics have been given a rocking twist.  Slowly sip on Purple Haze, November Rain and Brick in the Wall as you gear down and kickback to contemporary renditions of your favourite rock songs, mixed by DJ Nick and our very own star-in-the-making, DJ Anim.

Tonight the sun is rising in the East, spreading its golden glow across a crescendo of Asian rock and Eastern eateries… Discover the spirited energy of Asian market stalls abundant with everything from hand-pulled noodles by Chef Yang from Tianjin to Rising Sun Sushi; Toljit’s Roast Duck and Suckling Piglet to Aphai’s Hot Toms (Yum, Kha and more!), Quok’s Hanoi Rolls and the smokin’ seduction of the Korean Bulgogi joint on Indochine Wok Street.

BOLLYWOOD ‘DHOOM DHOOM’

Café Landaa
22 & 29 December 

7:00 – 10:30 pm

Join us on an epic Royal Enfield ride from Calcutta to Goa, at odds with convention, fuelled by the kitchen mafia who sustain the underbelly of society. Meet the Bengali Mustard Fish Frier, the Lucknow Lamb Kebab Launderers, the Masala Mob and the Hyderabadi Biryani Gang. After such a high definition assault on the senses, your wind-weaving journey ends at Shantaram’s Goan Curry and Kingfisher Shack – the perfect place to kick back, loosen your belts, and give yourself completely to the golden fate-filled moment…

FROM THE DEEP PURPLE SEA

Café Landaa
27 December & 4 January

7:00 – 10:30 pm

Tonight we’re diving below the smoke on the water into the deep purple sea for a boat-rocking Fisherman’s Night dedicated to the most delicious delights from the deep. Cast your net wide for ‘The Woman from Tokyo’ Sushi and Sashimi boat, Oysters and ‘Mistreated’ Crab legs, Vietnamese prawn rolls and Maldivian tuna steaks. Leave some space for purple sundaes and churros, served with a side of DJ Nick’s renditions of – you guessed it – Deep Purple and Co.

 

 

THE MAGIC OF MUSHROOMS

Blu
26 December & 2 January
7:00 – 10:30 pm 

Tonight is about shifting gears to less revved roads: a diamond-in-the-rough route featuring an à la carte ensemble of intoxicating black and white truffles, hand-picked by Blu’s former Italian master from Napoli before he moved to pastures new. Taking up the Blu Beach Club baton, Chef Jurgen Kulli joins us this festive season with 8 years of Michelin-star restaurant experience. (Don’t be misled by his German-sounding name, bestowed by his football-mad dad: Italian-born Jurgen is as much of a legend in the kitchen as his namesake was on the pitch!)
