The inaugural event, held on March 22, 2024, marked a splendid collaboration with the Spanish Embassy, presenting Embassy Nights: Olé España.

The night was a symphony of Spanish flavors and traditions curated by the resident chef from the Spanish Embassy. Guests dined on a delectable multi-course dinner highlighting the rich gastronomy of Spain, paired with exceptional wines complementing each course.

The menu showcased iconic Spanish dishes such as Ibérico Ham Croqueta, Basque Anchovy Gildas, Pulpo a la Gallega, and more. The main course featured Roasted Spanish Beef accompanied by a vegetable mille-feuille and Pedro Ximénez sauce, showcasing the culinary diversity of Spain’s regions.

The evening was enriched with cultural performances that transported guests to the heart of Spanish tradition. Renowned flamenco dancer Ken Nagata and his talented troupe mesmerized the audience with their passionate performance, embodying the spirit of Andalusia. Pianist Azumi Nishizawa’s classical melodies accompanied a stunning projection-mapping tour of Spain.

An exclusive demonstration of sherry pouring by a venenciador added a touch of authenticity to the event, highlighting Spain’s rich beverage culture.
