On Friday 4th November our team hosted a fabulous evening at The V&A Dundee for 25 corporate conference and event bookers from the local area with a Night Fever theme running throughout the event in keeping with the current exhibition at the venue.
The event was held in the Tatha Bar & Kitchen, a light and bright modern space within the museum which can be exclusively hired for events. The space boasts magnificent views with floor to ceiling windows leading to the outdoor terrace and the banks of the River Tay.
Guests were treated drinks and delicious canapes on arrival in the Upper Hall including crispy buttermilk oyster, sauce vierge and white wine caviar, veloute of caramelised brown onion, pecorino foam and trot truffle, and wellington of guineafowl, wild mushroom and tarragon with a Dijon emulsion.
The event was then officially opened with a warm welcome to all from business development manager Kim Barr and a tour of the resident Night Fever exhibition then commenced. The exhibition is the first of its kind and explores the relationship between the club culture and design from the 1960’s to today. It uncovers nightclub design from around the world and it’s far-reaching influence on popular culture showing how architecture, art, fashion, graphics, lighting, performance and sound all come together to create an immersive sensory experience where design, music and technology meet on the dancefloor.
After the tour, guests were invited to be seated for a sumptuous dinner prepared by the team of Heritage Portfolio chefs including BBQ barrel of beef, bone marrow potato cannelloni, pickled white cabbage, glazed baby carrot, turnip, port wine jus followed by dark chocolate, salted caramel and cherry disco ball, aero crumb, fennel and cherry sorbet.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening, the exhibition, the venue and the hospitality and the feedback was wonderful. For anyone wishing to know more about the event space available for hire at The V&A Dundee or to arrange for a showround of the venue please contact The Hub.
