Las Fallas – the city of Valencia’s celebration of fire festival – comes to Arros QD on Saturday 19 March, 6.30pm
Arros QD is bringing Valencia’s historic Las Fallas Celebration of Fire Festival to London for one night only. The Spanish city’s biggest cultural event is celebrated by millions nationwide – coming to London for the very first time on Saturday 19 March in association with Visit Valencia and Valencia Region
For one night only, on Saturday 19 March, Londoners can join in the vibrant, fiery spirit of Las Fallas in Fitzrovia at Arros QD.
The restaurant will celebrate its heritage with DJ La Santa on the decks, live fire artistry entertainment, Spanish cocktails and seven-courses of Valencian gastronomy from the city’s most famous chef: the six-time Michelin starred Quique Dacosta.
All-inclusive tickets cost £115 per person, for dinner, drinks and dancing from 6.30pm to the small hours of the morning.
Culture: Las Fallas – Valencia’s cultural street festival – is a festivity like no other: celebrating the arrival of spring by burning wood over the bonfire. Today, the bonfires are a pyrotechnical spectacle, with extravagant human-like statues or ninots, paraded through the streets during the-all singing, all-dancing five-day festival.
Food: Valencia’s most famous chef, and chef patron of Arros QD, has developed a masterful feasting menu of gastronomic twists on traditional Las Fallas dishes. All cooked atop the restaurant’s theatrical wood-fired grills: the traditional way. The seven-course menu features Mojama (salt-cured tuna with Marcona almonds), Scarlet prawns from Dénia, Iberian presa cooked over charcoal and – the Arros QD signature – Paella Valenciana rich with rabbit, butter beans and rosemary.
Drinks: There is Möet & Chandon on arrival, and Agua de Valencia cocktails after dinner (both included in the ticket price). Ticket-holders can add a number of wine pairings to their booking, from a £40 add-on of three glasses: Las Blancas – a Murcian white, red from Catalunya and a Château Bouscassé, Brumaire sweet wine. Alternatively go big with the £80 pairing: 2010 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne, Milmanda Catalunya white, 4Kilos Mallorcan red and a glass of Noé, Pedro Ximénez Jerez to finish.
Entertainment: with dancing after dinner, the night carries on, fuelled by live fire and pyrotechnic performances and music from the Marbella-to-Mayfair DJ, La Santa.
