Dinner by Design is back this June, bringing together world renowned designers and Calgary talent to create three-dimensional, delectable dining installations.

For the first time, the lavish design event will take place at the Chinese Cultural Centre, on Thursday, June 1 and Friday, June 2.

Diners will be surrounded by extraordinary dining environments — from the romantic to the whimsical with unique and fantastical tablescapes that will be the backdrop for the two day affair.

Helping to transform the centre is Calgary’s finest design talent, including LeAnne Bunell Interiors, Nyla Free Designs Inc and DADE LOFT.

Cocktail art and gala dinner

The Cocktail Art session on Thursday is sure to be a highlight, featuring more mixologists than ever before, as guests take in innovative table designs and installations.

Designers and guests mingle during this dazzling display of tablescapes while sampling gourmet canapés by Duncan Ly and Foreign Concept.

The cocktail cruising and tablehopping will be followed on Friday by a VIP Gala Dinner, featuring multiple courses paired with wine, accompanied by live music.

Cocktail tickets are $75 and include a complimentary welcome drink, canapés by Calgary’s finest chefs, and live entertainment.

Dinner tickets are $300 and include all drinks, from specialty cocktails or beers at the open bar, to the dining wine pairings. Live entertainment will also be on offer.

If you’d simply like to explore the tablescapes with cocktails or dinner, there will be a free public viewing session on Friday, June 2.
