Richmonde Hotel Iloilo recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary event “From 3 to Z!”. This celebration also marked Zabana Rum’s launch in Iloilo City, and the opening of the hotel’s new Zabana Bar.
It was where Richmonde Iloilo, Emperador Distillers Inc., and Megaworld Corporation’s Iloilo Business Park treated clients, guests, and friends to exciting entertainment, fine food and cocktails.
The party kicked off with a warm welcome from Richmonde Hotel Iloilo’s very own Resident Manager, Natalie U. Lim. He gave thanks to the attendees for embracing Richmonde into the community, and for their continued support and patronage of the hotel from the time it began operations 3 years ago.
Launch of Zabana Bar
Pablo A. Sim, the Assistant Brand Manager for Brown Spirits of Emperador Distillers, Inc., also introduced Zabana Rum – the newest, Philippine-made liquor.
It was fitting to launch the “Real Rum of the Philippines” in Iloilo City. After all, Panay Island is one of the country’s top producers of sugarcane, the drink’s main ingredient.
The guests also had a taste of Zabana Rum’s different variants immediately after the unveiling of Zabana Bar. This outlet specializes in Filipino-inspired, Zabana Rum-based cocktails with ingredients that include calamansi, mangoes, and coconut.
The drinks kept on pouring all night long courtesy of special guest mixologists, Kenneth Alonso and Mike Valero, as the crowd grooved to the rhythm and drumbeats of DJ Lean Zayco and the Patikeros.
Zabana Bar is now open at Richmonde Hotel Iloilo’s 7th floor pool deck from 12:00nn until 9:00pm (except during inclement weather).
Richmonde Hotel Iloilo’s Fashion Show
Representing the style, sophistication, and elegance of Richmonde Hotel was a one-of-a-kind fashion show on water. The hotel’s picturesque pool was transformed into a runway with a finale at the indoor banquet venue, becoming a backdrop for the show.
Chic street wear styled by Ryan Hinayhinay, the trendy tropical collection of PJ Arandor, and the formal wear designed by Sidney Eculla and Paolo Conte were all exhibited.
It was a night to remember as the hotel journeyed “From 3 to Z” on its anniversary. This success was a clear indication of better things to come for Richmonde Hotel Iloilo and its clients, friends, and partners.
