A new interactive dining experience at The Peninsula Hong Kong channels great literary character Jay Gatsby.
Set in the jazz age of the 1920s, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby may have had more plot holes than a block of Swiss cheese, but its glamourous imagery has left an indelible mark, one that was further accentuated by Baz Luhrmann’s big-screen adaption starring Leo Di Caprio.
The Great Gatsby’s Immersive Dining Experience, directed by acclaimed Artistic Director Richard Crawford, offers guests a chance to dress to the nines, grab their favourite gal, and step back to the Roaring Twenties with a theatrical performance and imaginative four-course dinner by Chef de Cuisine Juan Gomez – think lobster and truffle toast; Oyster Rockefeller (naturally); Obsiblue prawn and king crab cocktail with Kristal caviar; and Challan Duck Magret.
Not only will guests be welcomed into Jay Gatsby’s opulent mansion but they’ll also play their part, with diners asked to dress in their best 1920s-inspired ensembles as part of the interactive dinner performance, with the best dressed winning a staycation at the hotel.
The Great Gatsby’s Immersive Dining Experience will take place from October 21 until November 27, on Thursdays to Saturdays, from 7 pm. Tickets are priced from HK$2,000 (HK$2,500 VIP tickets include an NFT from Jay himself) and include dinner, a welcome drink, and the performance.
