Speakeasy Del Artista ~ A Celebration of Fashion, Food & Drink in Support of Food 4 Kids Hamilton!

Speakeasy Del Artista ~ A Celebration of Fashion, Food & Drink in Support of Food 4 Kids Hamilton!

An evening of private label cuisine, cocktails and couture
in support of this worthy local charity.

On Sunday October 2nd, Lake Road Restaurant brings back the splendour, elegance and frivolity of the Prohibition-era with a one-night only celebration of fashion, fine dining and spirits ~ all for a great cause in support of Hamilton’s own Food 4 Kids.  

Join us for Speakeasy Del Artista - an exclusive fundraising evening featuring a four-course custom dinner menu by Executive Chef Dan Megna and his team; a custom welcome cocktail designed by Lake Road's Laurie Lilliman to kick off the Hamilton launch of Ancho Reyes The Original Ancho Chili Liqueur, and a glass of wine with your dinner as selected by Lake Road’s sommelier Patrick Field.  

During dinner, Lake Road’s main dining room will become a catwalk as guests are treated to a live fashion show presented by Vogue Models & Talent (Hamilton, Toronto), featuring fashions by Vespidame, Designs by Mallory, Angela Demontigny and The Eye of Faith. Hair and Makeup will be provided by Caitlin Allen.   

Your ticket includes all of this plus your donation to Food 4 Kids Hamilton; the inspiring local organization dedicated to ensuring that no child in our community goes hungry.  

Celebrate the spirit of the roaring '20s with an array of delectable cuisine; speakeasy-approved libations, 1920's inspired fashion and haberdashery, both a silent & live auction and a few surprises to assure a roaring good time!  

Your ticket also grants you “bypass the line” access to our authentic late-night monthly Speakeasy Sunday where the Ancho Reyes Official Hamilton launch joins Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky for a great night of original craft cocktails, more great food and featuring the 1920's Rock & Roll & Ragtime music by The Vaudevillian beginning at 9:30 pm!
