Chino Latino Birthday Celebrations

Ravishing Reds,
Bold Blacks,
Exploring the pan-Asian Cuisine in Style.


When I received an email in regards to attending Chino Latino's Birthday celebrations; I couldn't resist the urge! I've not been to Chino's before, But I had heard many wonderful reviews on the food and atmosphere. 
Chino Latino has their venues within 4 locations, Nottingham is one of them and can be found upon Maid Marian Way, right within Park Plaza. They create and serve pan-Asian cuisine, And have created Latin cocktails that will compliment the dishes.
 The email pointed out, that there will be a dress code of red and black which I found exciting and had to hunt the perfect outfit out for the evening! I decided to go with a shocking red shift dress, with bell sleeves, and used a black clinch belt to provide a hourglass effect.

On arrival at the venue, red lanterns gracefully hung across the ceiling, where a walk way led us to two smiling ladies, to take our names and mark us off of the list. Our welcome, was very warm and inviting, as we were offered an alcoholic beverage and watched as the guest list arrived in style. Outside was an outstanding fire performance that literally made us 'ooh' and 'ahh' in her marvelous display; Including the popular fire eating trick which left us speechless.

It was brilliant to see the way that the guests used the dress theme, stylish dresses along with modern statement accessories; The night quickly became busy, as a long outstretched table with freshly caught sushi cleverly positioned upon it, it was definitely center of attention. 


Staff would come around offering delicious canapes of intense flavours, That can only make me wonder what their full menu would be like, as we mingled and conversed; It was great to see a lot of the East Midlands blogging ladies there too as it gave us time to catch up and enjoy the night together.

Within the reception area we were then surprised by their very own Chinese dancing dragon! The dragon dance had to be my own personal highlight of the evening, the live music was so powerful and strong. The costume itself was fantastic, with batting eyelids and moving mouth; Telling a story through it's movements and emotion, it was spectacular.



The dance then led us through to Chino Latino's main dinning and cocktail area; a colourful selection of cocktails to try on trays, was presented on the bar. A DJ then took over so that they could take the party deep into the early hours, and yes it was the best time to throw a few dance moves out there!


At the far end of the room, there was a miraculous display.. Think of it as the supreme dessert table; Fresh melon fruit, spelling out Chino Latino as surrounding it were mini desserts, a tower of profiteroles with thick cream filling and drizzled in milk chocolate. It was ideal to take a few pictures of this masterpiece before the actual unveil.


It was seriously one of the most amazing Birthday celebrations I've been invited to; and it was a complete honour! Thank you to the lovely Cartwright Communications for the invitation, and to Chino Latino's hospitality. I'll be heading back again soon to try out their dinner and tasting menu, and shall report back on my thoughts!
