Meet your new Catering Insight Awards After-Party venue

The Catering Insight Awards After-Party will now take place in Opal’s Noir bar.

Catering Insight has been forced to switch this year’s Catering Insight Awards After-Party location after the original venue, the Tropicana Beach Club, double booked the evening and was no longer able to accommodate the event on Thursday 23 November.

But with the help of official After-Party sponsor Atosa, Catering Insight has come up with an even better venue and package for this year’s award guests to party the night away until 3am.

The after-hours action will now take place at the Opal Bar on Victoria Embankment, which is literally at the end of Northumberland Avenue, where the main ceremony will be held at number 8 on that street earlier in the night.

With just a 4 minute walk and no transport required between the two venues, guests can look forward to free entry to a private area in the sultry downstairs Noir bar, while also able to mix with the general public if they wish.

Sponsor Atosa is providing a free bubbly reception to welcome all After-Party guests, plus a token for a further free drink to be exchanged at the Opal Bar for either a bottle of beer, a glass of wine, a spirit and mixer or a soft drink.

Not only that, there will be further free bottles of spirits in the dedicated area, plus free shots available at the bar too.
