Celebrate Chinese New Year in style at Ivy Asia, the opulent second floor of The Ivy Spinningfields. In true Ivy Asia style, the bar and restaurant will add a delicious golden twist to tradition with a decadent dessert – a giant, golden fortune cookie, offering guests the chance of winning a meal for two. Throughout the celebrations, a collection of brand-new inspired cocktails will launch, and there will be performances taking place in homage to the Chinese tradition.
Ivy Asia will kick-start the celebrations from Wednesday, 22 January, and to mark the New Year, will launch a special menu of three expertly crafted cocktails available until Wednesday, 5 February. Creations include Gan Bei (£13.50) featuring Midori, Yuzu Juice, Monin Matcha Green Tea Syrup, Fee Brothers Plum Bitters, Ivy Champagne, and Monin Hibiscus, Shanghai Sour (£9.75) with Amaro Montenegro, Lemon Juice, Egg White, Monin Sugar Syrup, Angostura Bitters, finished with Changyu Moser XV Cabernet Sauvignon and The Victor and the Violet (£9.50) which showcases Zymurgorium Sweet Violet, Beefeater Pink Gin, Briottet Creme de Cassis, Yuzu Juice, Monin Lavender and Rubicon Lychee Juice.
Following tradition, from Wednesday, 22 January – Saturday, 25 January, Ivy Asia will serve up a giant golden fortune cookie, with Valrhona Guanaja dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream and chocolate pearls (£9.50). On 25th, lucky guests will be in with the chance of winning a complimentary lunch or dinner for two, revealed only in lucky fortune cookie notes.
On the night of Chinese New Year itself, Ivy Asia will also play host to a special evening of inspired entertainment, complete with live performances and fine cuisine.
Ivy Asia serves Asian-inspired cocktails alongside dishes such as Wagyu beef with truffle sauce, salmon fillet teriyaki, and avocado, crispy tofu, lime and ginger dressing. The entire floor is illuminated with a show-stopping green, semi-precious stone floor, set against a striking antique gold mirrored bar, gold-gilt ceiling and luxurious Asian fabrics. The Geisha Room, a stunning private room with bespoke mirrored artwork, is also available to hire privately.
