Independent city centre restaurant Atina Kitchen & Bar to host a line-up of themed food and drink events throughout the year
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
Food and drink lovers in Chester are in for a treat this summer as Foregate Street restaurant, Atina Kitchen & Bar, launch a host of themed evenings from around the world.
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 celebrate and sample different cultural cuisines and tipples.
Running until to November, the independent restaurant and bar will host a different theme 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!
“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.’
“A lot of our customers think of us as a hidden gem in Chester and although our restaurant is really well known for its breakfast and brunch offering, we also open dinner service from 5.30pm. We’re thrilled to announce a packed line-up of events this year that we hope will help even more guests discover and experience what we have to offer here.”
Emily Ghazarian, Events Manager at CH1ChesterBID, added: “It’s such a pleasure to have restaurants like Atina Kitchen as part of Chester’s independent retailer community.
“Jake and the Atina team always work incredibly hard to offer food and drink that you just can’t get anywhere else and it’s great to see the restaurant continue to expand their themed evenings which are already proving popular! “
