On Wednesday 19th June we held our official launch party after a successful soft launch for Liban Tapas back in December.
We asked Big Brother contestant Simon Gross to host the event for us whilst other well-known personalities came along to help us celebrate our opening, including Towie’s James Lock, Pete Wicks and TV personality Alex Reid.
The evening started with the customary photo call against our Liban Tapas liveried wall, before guests moved towards the open restaurant and bar area for some bubbly, Lebanese wines and delicious canapés and tasty freshly prepared Lebanese bites our chefs had prepared for our guests.
Talented vocalist Jamie Lee Nelson provided the entertainment throughout the evening with a selection of popular songs.
In between a few heavy downpours of rain, well it is England after all, our enclosed Parisian Terrace proved to be popular, where guests also got the opportunity to sample our shisha.
Later in the evening our popular belly dancer popped in to also entertain the guests, who were eager to join in the fun!
As Simon Gross said: “The restaurant offers high-class Lebanese food at its best and it right on your doorstep.”
We were also delighted to have our launch featured in the local Ilford Recorder: www.ilfordrecorder.co.uk
