Review: Penhaligon’s dinner at The Ivy Bath Brasserie
Fine food and fine fragrances came together in fabulously fine style last Monday evening, when The Ivy Bath Brasserie joined forces with luxury British perfume house Penhaligon’s to offer guests a uniquely sensual dining experience.
The exclusive event took place in The Ivy Bath Brasserie’s striking private dining space The Baldwin Room – surely one of the most elegant private party zones in Bath, currently decked out in stylish festive finery in readiness for the party season and conveniently located adjacent to an exquisitely pretty bar.
The evening was hosted by Penhaligon’s Global Education Ambassador Dominic Collingridge and his colleagues, who treated us to multiple enlightening insights into Penhaligon’s fascinating history, explained the backstory behind their iconic fragrances… and collaborated with The Ivy Bath Brasserie’s expert mixologists to create two unique cocktails complimenting the company’s fragrance portfolio; how fab is that?!
Guests dined in full-on lord and lady style courtesy of a menu that included the silky smoked salmon, super-tasty fillet steak and tarte tatin flambéed ‘live’ at the table; meanwhile, the accompanying wine flowed (take note, piggies: The Ivy Bath Brasserie’s ‘house’ wine, sourced from Sicilian vineyards, is utterly divine.) Oh what a night indeed!
The gorgeously glittery Penhaligon’s shop is on the corner of New Bond Street and the seductively welcoming Ivy Bath Brasserie just a short hop away, on Milsom Street: that’s both your Christmas gifting inspiration and your festive season sanctuary sorted!
