Peace Child International x Experimental Group

SEEN loves a good cause as much as we love good food. And now the two are gloriously combined! Global hospitality collective Experimental Group is delighted to be hosting a very special event for one night only to raise funds for Peace Child International. Taking place at Covent Garden’s Henrietta Hotel on Tuesday 30th January, Experimental Group will bring together four renowned chefs from their venues in London and Paris: Ollie Dabbous of Henrietta Hotel, Jackson Boxer of Chess Club, and Assaf Granit and Uri Navon of Balagan Paris. Priced at £95 per person, the evening will include a Champagne reception followed by an exquisite six course set menu with wine pairings, featuring dishes created on the night by each of the chefs. A silent auction will also take place featuring incredible, money can’t buy weekends in London, Paris and Ibiza where their venues provide the ultimate in luxury food and drink experiences.

“Over the last ten years, we’ve always donated to charity auctions, but this year we wanted to do something that was close to our own hearts by bringing together the chefs we already work with in London and Paris,” said Xavier Padovani. “Jackson, Ollie, Uri and Assaf have never shared a kitchen, so it’ll be a fun night of amazing food and wine all in the name of a good cause.”

Experimental Group is the independent, pioneering collective behind ECC, Grand Pigalle Hotel, Balagan, Experimental Beach and Henrietta. With 20 cocktail bars, restaurants, wine bars and now hotels globally, Experimental Group – founded by childhood friends Romée de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros and Olivier Bon, and joined by Xavier Padovani in 2010 – changed the face of Parisian hospitality with the launch of Experimental Cocktail Club Paris; an establishment that has since become a legend on the global cocktail bar scene. Experimental Cocktail Club opened in London’s Chinatown in 2010.

Peace Child International believe in the power of youth-led development. Through innovative employability and entrepreneurship programmes they work to improve jobs and livelihoods for thousands of young people around the world. They encourage young people to get informed and give them all the tools and support they need to create positive change in their own lives and that of their communities. A worthy initiative indeed.
