What perfect way to end a tiring week than to spend some time under the glowing night sky. Though, like the rest of the world, we have an unpredictable weather, still, that does not stop us from having fun after a week of deadlines and meetings. And fun we need.
Damosa is not just a foodie compound of flavours and eats. At Damosa, celebrations also include a night of acoustic music from local talents. Damosa Nights Payday Fridays transforms the Damosa Complex to an awesome outdoor venue of music, flavours and celebrations. What’s more, you get to enjoy dishes from your favourite restaurants — al fresco dining style.
Participating restaurants include Burgers and Board Games, Haruno Isakaya, Open Table, Caffe Firenzo and Ristorante Spirale. Music under the moonlight has never been this fun. Gather your friends and enjoy munching on some grilled-to-perfection burgers or plates of colourful Japanese dishes as you sing your hearts out. If fusion dishes and wines are your thing, then you can go all out with Open Table’s delicious menu or have an interesting antipasti night from Ristorante Spirale. If coffee and pastries is your cup of tea, then go ahead and make it a Caffe Firenzo kind of night at Damosa.
