FINCA-Fest - 26th August

Get your mojitos at the ready and pop on your dancing shoes; FINCA-Fest is coming on Sunday 26th August with a full Cuban party takeover of the whole Artisan restaurant, for FINCA’s leaving party.

On the day, FINCA will be serving up their famous Cuban inspired dishes and cocktails across both floors on their final day to a soundtrack of Latin beats.

Bringing the party atmosphere on the day will be renowned DJs, ‘Melodic Distraction’, who will be spinning Latin-inspired records from 3pm right through until the early hours in FINCA’s downstairs restaurant.

The entertainment doesn’t stop there; partygoers will be able to learn the history of the famous Cuban Mojito with a masterclass by one of Artisan’s expert bartenders during the day, and a live Latin band will be performing upstairs in Artisan’s bar with salsa dancers also getting guests into the swing of things.

FINCA’s Cuban takeover takes place on Sunday 26 August – with DJs and entertainment from 3pm.
