Independent city centre restaurant Atina Kitchen & Bar is set to host a line-up of special themed food and drink events throughout the remainder of the year, with the first starting in July.
From a Party in Prague to a Spanish fiesta, the events will see the restaurant team up with national producers such as Arbikie, Moritz and Budvar.
The family-run eatery, which is well known for its Italian inspired food, contemporary cocktails and ever growing gin menu, will welcome guests to a series of exclusive evenings to sample different cultural cuisines and tempting tipples.
The independent restaurant and bar will host a different themed event each month.
Owner of Atina Kitchen, Jake Potter, said: “We hosted a few food and drink evenings last year and they proved to be extremely popular, so we’re really excited to be bringing them back along with even more events throughout the year!”
Jake added: “We’re proud to be amongst the fantastic independent retailers in Chester and it’s a real pleasure to be teaming up with distilleries and producers from around the world to help host and supply products for our themed evenings.
“The Atina team are given additional training around the new food and drink along with a chance to sample the products themselves so they can pass on their personal recommendations to our customers.”
There will be an exclusive themed evening on the first Tuesday of each month:
