Last month, all roads led to the valley for the 20th year of the highly celebrated Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. F10 Creative and Plymouth Gin joined forces to host the “Early Bird Special” to entertain tastemakers from Miami, New York and LA at Mr. Lyons before everyone let loose at the festival over the weekend. As the sun was setting, Plymouth Gin’s Global Ambassador, Sebastian Hamilton-Mudge treated guests to Plymouth Gin 50/50 martinis, the cocktail's beautiful pale pink matched the sky perfectly.
Mr. Lyons’ Executive Chef Erik Dandee and F10 Culinary Director Eddie Moran teamed up to create the perfect 3-course classic steakhouse menu, which included menu favorites such as oysters, shrimp cocktail, prime rib and Mr. Lyons special homemade hot fudge mint ice cream sundae.
Following dinner, guests joined the bumping after-party that had already started at Seymour’s, where special guest Andy Shannon of the Punch Room (The London EDITION) was preparing distinctive Plymouth Gin cocktails, including his famous punchbowl concoctions. The party went on into the wee hours of the night, as great evenings fueled by delicious cocktails and amazing company tend to do.
