FOUR PILLARS X QT HOTELS ORDERED CHAOS GIN DINNER
In partnership with Four Pillars Gin, May is the month of chaos across all QT Hotels and Resorts. To celebrate, QT Melbourne are transforming their kitchens, menus and signature restaurant, Pascale Bar and Grill, into a chaotic wonderland of five courses for one night only with an Ordered Chaos Gin Dinner.
The month of celebrations follows the launch of our first ever branded gin artfully created by Four Pillars’ team – Ordered Chaos, artfully created by Four Pillar’s team of distilling experts, then blended beautifully alongside Four Pillars signature botanicals by QT Hotels and Resorts’ best bartenders. A gin with attitude, the result is a sensational drink and experience to excite.
The matched five-course food and beverage experience will bring riotous flavour combinations, deconstructed dishes and highly smashable desserts. Guests are invited to ready their dance steps for matched Four Pillars sensory cocktails, musical pairings, and effervescent entertainment all hosted by Stu Gregor, Four Pillars co-founder.
The Ordered Chaos Gin Dinner is on Thursday 20th May at 7pm in Pascale Bar and Grill, $175pp for 5 courses with matched cocktails. Tickets can be purchased here.
