Following last year’s sell out sessions, the House of Holi is back – bigger, better and brighter than ever! Leave the dull, grey City at the door, don your protective white suit, and step into the madness at the House of Holi, for thirty minutes of paint-pelting friends, family and colleagues, in a colourful powdered wonderland!
Sitting amongst the skyscrapers and the concrete, Cinnamon Kitchen will bring a vibrant injection of colour to the urban environs of the City with the return of their purpose-built party pod – popping up outside Vivek Singh’s modern-Indian restaurant in Devonshire Square from 5th to 14th March. The perfect antidote to dull days in the office, workers can kick off their heels, loosen their ties, and experience the spectacular paint throwing festivities that mark the renowned festival of colour on 6th March.
Announcing the arrival of spring and the passing of winter, Holi is a welcome burst of fluorescence following London’s bleak and blustery winter, where families traditionally gather together and cover each other in coloured paint.
But of course, no Indian festival would be complete without a feast of delicious dishes and Cinnamon Kitchen will be getting into the spirit with a vibrant five-course Holi menu. At £45 per person dishes may include:
Chargrilled sprouting broccoli with almonds and rose petals
Kentish lamb ‘pasanda’ with rock moss and allspice
Lotus stem korma with green pea ‘paratha’, crisp fried okra
Tandoori king prawns with coconut and mustard curry, ghee rice
Carrot halwa parcel, coconut and pistachio cake, saffron ‘rabri’
Anise, Cinnamon Kitchen’s destination bar, will also be serving an array of colourful Holi cocktails which may include the Holika Fire – Applejack, fresh lime, homemade grenadine; and the Neela Heera – Broker’s Gin, Maraschino Liqueur, Crème Yvette and fresh lemon.
Tickets are priced at £8 per person, or £15 per person including a Holi-inspired cocktail and traditional canapés. Children are welcome too, just bring them along to one of the ‘Little Holi’ sessions, taking place each Saturday from 12 – 12.30pm and 3 – 3.30pm.
