2017 UK General Election Dinner: The Results Are In
Counting down to Theresa May’s snap general election, spend one of the most exciting evenings of the 2017 political calendar at London’s top Indian restaurant The Cinnamon Club, affectionately known as “The Westminster Canteen,” for an all-night offering of modern Indian food and drink including exclusive ‘Cabinet Cocktails.’ Predict the election outcome for your chance to win a special prize!
Carry-over from evening to morning on election results night, Thursday 8th June, at The Cinnamon Club – located within the shadows of Houses of Parliament in the Old Westminster Library – while you follow every ballot box being opened and each constituency counted on the big screens whilst enjoying a feast of Executive Chef Vivek Singh’s signature style of modern Indian cuisine. From 6pm until 10.45pm, book in for dinner, stay for the results and leave after the cockerel crows with the election results digested and debated over a hot breakfast, served from 5am onwards.
Election Results Dinner Event
Fuel up on an election feast from the à la carte menu: first choose between appetisers of fenugreek scented tandoori cod, curry leaf and lime crumble or tandoori octopus with chutney aloo, fennel salad and tomato lemongrass dressing. Elect a main such as the Noforlk free range chicken breast in Hyderabadi korma sauce with a garlic naan crumble, as well as roast saddle of Romney Marsh lamb, saffron and pickled root vegetables. Complete your meal with a dessert of either Alphonso mango kulfi in a chilli mango soup or a slice of honey lime cheesecake.
‘Cabinet Cocktails’ in the Library Bar
After dinner, adjourn to the Library Bar where you can relax like a pack of backbenchers and watch the excitement unfold. Soothing the tension will be bar snacks and well-elected cocktails including three specialty ‘Cabinet Cocktails‘, perfectly themed to sip on and settle the nerves as the nights events unfold:
- Remoaners Ruin – Belvedere Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Vermouth, Twist
- Hope for a Future – Light & Spice Rum, Coriander, lime, Almond syrup, Ginger Beer
- Order! Order! – Tanquaray Gin, Fig Liqueur, Aperol, Orange Bitters
We’ll also be serving up our usual tasty bar snacks including naan breads filled with tandoori chicken breast and Montgomery’s cheddar or devilled lamb mince, as well as nibbles such as chicken legs stir-fried with garlic, red chilli, red onion and soy and seared Padrón peppers.
Predict the result for your chance to win!
If the thrill of a new government isn’t enough excitement for one night, diners will also be encouraged to cast their vote speculating which party will emerge victorious for a chance to win a tasting menu for two guests, along with paired wines, plus a signed copy of Vivek Singh’s latest cookbook Indian Festival Feasts.
Guests can solely book in for dinner, drop by for breakfast, or arrive only to kick back in the bar to follow the live results. Whether you’re staying for one act or sticking with the manifesto through the night, give The Cinnamon Club your vote: this is one election promise that won’t be broken!
