Luxury boutique hotel The LaLiT London is celebrating Pride with a touch of extravagance this year. For this Pride, you will have the opportunity to top and tail the summer’s biggest party weekend with drag dining and a boozy brunch. The hotel is ready to champion its ethos of #PureLove and inclusivity with LaLiT offering an “Ultimate Pride Package”, including tickets to both events and a two-night stay at the hotel, starting from £838.
Drag, dining and debauchery
On Friday 5th July, you will be able to ring in your Pride weekend with a delicious dinner at The LaLiT’s restaurant, Baluchi. We had the pleasure to dine at the pan-Indian restaurant, and can confirm that the food is delightful. At Baluchi, you will be treated to an evening of unparalleled entertainment alongside either a decadent four-course dinner, or a selection of canapés. The restaurant’s cuisine, created by Executive Chef Santosh Shah, will be paired with 90 minutes of free-flowing Prosecco, wine or beer. Your fabulous dining experience will be completed with star studded acts, including trans icon Amanda Lepore, the wildly distorted and ever avant-garde Hungry, plus many more. Your host for the evening will be Virgin Xtravaganzah, The LaLiT London’s fabulous ambassador and acclaimed drag star. After the show, party your night away to the tunes of sensational queer queen, DJ Tete Bang.
VIP dinner tickets cost £130 per person andinclude a front row seat to the show as well as a personal meet and greet with Amanda Lepore. You’ll also enjoy a four-course menu, with delicious dishes such as aubergine steak with coconut sukka, spiced tofu mince and Malabar sauce plus seabass with grilled avocado, olive crumble and coriander chutney. Finish with a devilishly good liquorice dark chocolate and lime cake, with clove smoked lemon curd, mango crisp and caramel popcorn.
For those who simply want to get the party started and skip dinner, there’s the option of buying the canapé ticket priced at £60 per person. Whether you choose the indulgent sit-down dinner or standing canapé menu, the bottomless bubbles are sure to be the perfect accompaniment for a night of debauchery.
After you’ve marched proud and partied hard, return to The LaLiT London on Sunday 7thJuly for the ultimate hangover cure – a hearty brunch and hair of the dog. “The Pride brunch” menu will include the likes of samosa chaat with sweet yogurt and tamarind chutney, and slow-braised pork belly with honey and chilli glaze. Priced at £40 per person, you can choose up to eight dishes from the special menu, alongside two hours of bottomless Prosecco. Virgin Xtravaganzah will be on hand throughout to make sure spirits are high and the party is still going strong.
Tickets are available at here with £2 from each sold being donated to Pride in London.
