16th June: A Thai Cocktail Evening (HSR Layout)
On her honeymoon to Thailand, Amruta got hooked on the country’s cuisine. Its fresh and contrasting flavours left her obsessed. She couldn't stop herself swaying from one cart to another at street joints trying Thai delicacies and chugging cocktails made with fascinating ingredients like palm sugar and tamarind.
With all she learned from her retained enthusiasm and appreciation for Thai food on returning to Bangalore, she wants her guests to be as awe-inspired as she was by hosting an evening celebrating the oriental cuisine. Look forward to being served with coconut based cocktails and dishes like ‘Raw Mango Salad with Prawns.’

Along with Black & White whiskey cocktails, you will be served with appetizers like Cucumber with Dill Cream topped with Smoked Salmon, Fig and Brie Crostini. To add to it, the location is in the outskirts of Bangalore, a total escape from city hustle bustle.
