STYLEetc were lucky enough to be present at the official launch event for Aubaine Le Café and Restaurant at Selfridges Exchange Square.
This VIP event with guests including Michelle Collins and Antony Cotton, featured hosts of savoury and sweet treats from this renowned French restaurant and patisserie, which has come to Selfridges in Manchester in its first move outside of London.
The party began in Le Café, located on the Lower Ground Floor, where we enjoyed stunning canapés and a lavender infused Gin cocktail. This gave us an opportunity to experience the sheer grandeur of the refurbishments that have taken place to create a stylish art-deco inspired look including chequer board flooring, mirrors and soft lighting.
After about an hour, the entire party made there way upstairs to sample more gorgeous dishes ranging from substantial canapés, adapted from the A La Carte menu including a delicious mini Roquefort Salad to mini desserts which feature in the main restaurant. These included mini éclairs, coffee and chocolate, mini lemon meringues, pistachio fanciers and mini carrot pistachio and vanilla macaroons.
After indulging in a crepe too many it was time to enjoy the DJ’s efforts and dance away!
