Now Lounge presents: Italian Summer Party
Join us as we celebrate the summer, Italian-style! Returning to the stylish Granada Suite, which offers spectacular night-time views of the city, the next Now Lounge will bring the very best of the Mediterranean right into the heart of Fukuoka. With a display of some of Ducati’s most powerful motorcycles, fine Italian wines, mouth-watering pizza, delicious gelato and a whole array of other treats, this is a party not to be missed!
Jean-Christian Bouvier and his band kick off the night with a sneak peak at this year’s “World CM Festival” featuring a selection of outrageous award-winning Italian television commercials. Then, MC and wine expert Dominic will coordinate a massive group taste-testing of some choice Italian wines. This is free but limited to 300 persons, so don’t be late! Then, Tiempo Iberoamericano’s professional dancers take over with a sizzling salsa dance performance guaranteed to pack the floor. Following that, our special “secret” guest performs live on stage! Finally, DJ H turns up the volume and keeps the dance floor filled until the end of the night.
With nearly 800 guests in attendance, the last Now Lounge was a blast – and this time will be even better! Book your tickets online now for speedy entry on the night. First 300 booked tickets get free Italian gelato!
