As the year unwinds and draws rather quickly to its close, it’s not uncommon to reflect on the year gone by and remember what days, what nights, what memories moulded 2017 into a real stand out year. At Tom Browns Brasserie and Restaurant, one of the keystone nights that made our 2017 has definitely got to be our Winter Ball. On the 25th of November, our Nottingham restaurant was decked up to the nines, the drinks were flowing, our black-tie suited and booted guests looked phenomenal and the food…well, the food lived up to the exceptional standard we entered 2017 with, and we intend to push and expand upon in the many years to come.
Sponsored by Belvedere Vodka, our Winter Ball was an event that effortlessly oozed both sophistication and fun. This was no run-of-the-mill Christmas party – THIS was an Electric Cabaret!
As soon as they arrived, our guests were treated to tantalising Belvedere Vodka cocktails, a reception that we’re sure all our guests could get used to! After the star-studded greeting, each guest was seated and ready to tuck into our delicious 3-course meal specifically designed to perfectly match the glitz and glamour of an Electric Cabaret, and what an electrifying cabaret it was.
During each course, our guests were audience to some of the country’s top entertainers who really brought the WOW-factor to our Winter Ball. Our dinner started with a stunning live singer who serenaded our guests as they enjoyed their first course of smoked duck terrine and duck liver parfait. As they tucked into their main course of melt-in-the-mouth butter poached chicken, they were treated to hilarious circus acts, stunned by jaw-dropping magicians and left wanting more by the sensual burlesque stars. By the time dessert came out, which was an utterly delectable chocolate and salted caramel tart, the party was already in full swing!
As the plates were cleared it was time to put on their dancing shoes, as DJ royalty drag super-star Jon Pleased Wimmin took to the decks and spun club classics for our revellers to party long into the night.
Even though it’s taken us a couple some time to recover, we’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who joined us in our Christmas celebrations, but also a massive standing ovation for all our performers, Abigail Collins, Cherry Shakewell, Kiki Deville, The Mighty Moustache, Scarlett Daggers, Atlas Mind Reader, Max Francis Magic, Jon Pleased Wimmin. Also, a special thanks to all of our incredible waiting staff, chefs and bar staff, without all of you the Tom Browns Winter Ball ‘Electric Cabaret’ wouldn’t have been the event that made our 2017.
