Alaïa: Richmond’s newest champagne and caviar lounge at Versante Hotel opening October 28

On Friday, October 28, Club Versante unveils Alaïa, the latest addition to its collection of dining destinations, during an enchanting evening of dancing, dress-up, and imbibing. The Halloween-inspired occasion is the first in a series of monthly event concepts to be hosted in the penthouse lounge.

Alaïa’s Celestial Halloween event kicks off at 9pm and features a live DJ and dancers, caviar by Royal Caviar Club, champagne, sake, and more. An elevated experience is available (at an additional charge) for those who wish to receive private table service and order from an exclusive tasting menu developed by Executive Chef William Lew.

Situated on the 12th floor of Versante Hotel, Alaïa’s striking interior with sky-high ceiling, pin-striped feature wall, and bold décor inspire a wandering imagination, while a wrap-around patio offers sweeping views of the city’s multi-faceted surroundings.

As Alaïa is an Arabic term for “sublime,” the dining destination aims to evoke these sentiments through food, art, music and fashion. While the venue will be exclusively open to Club Versante members and Versante Hotel guests regularly, Alaïa will host themed monthly events (such as the Celestial Halloween event) open for all members of the public to enjoy.

After dancing the night away at Alaïa, retreat to one of Versante Hotel’s artfully-decorated guestrooms by booking the Celestial Halloween overnight stay package. This offer includes two tickets to attend Alaïa’s Celestial Halloween event, an exclusive room rate (starting at $254), and complimentary valet parking. Each contemporary room features in-app room controls and spa-like bathrooms with freestanding soaker tubs, rainforest showers, Dyson hair dryers, and Red Flower wellness products. Other Versante Hotel highlights include a heated rooftop pool and jacuzzi, and 24-hour fitness studio with Peloton bikes and MIRROR workout technology. Take advantage of this limited-time offer to experience TripAdvisor travellers’ top choice for accommodations in Richmond, BC.

Alaïa is open to hotel guests and Club Versante members (19+) Tuesday through Saturday, 3 to 11pm.
