SOMETHING FOR THE LADY

Michelin Star Dining at Hakkasan
Enjoy the exotic taste of Chinese food at one of the world-famous Hakkasan restaurants. This is a gift for two at one of the two Hakkasan locations in London.
Since both places hold a Michelin star, you know the food will be of the utmost quality – so all that’s left for you to decide on is which location. You’ll start with a personally selected cocktail from the famous Hakkasan cocktail menu. This will precede an amazing eight-dish sharing menu of modern Chinese food that hasn’t forgotten its roots.
FOR THE GENTLEMAN

Enjoy them at your leisure, as they will be paired with British and French cheeses. Taste whiskies like Strathisla 1965, 43-year-old Ben Nevis (only 150 bottles ever made) and Ardberg Supernova.
