Red Tie Cocktail Event in Jerusalem

Red Tie Cocktail Event in Jerusalem

The Red Tie Cocktail Event in Jerusalem’s Light Rail at the Ammunition Hill train station was mesmerizing, a night of elegant magic. It was the opening event for Jerusalem’s Open Restaurant Festival. The week long festival from November 22-26, includes a vast array of restaurants participating. Dinners, cooking demonstrations, kids workshops are some of the experiences the guests will have the opportunity to enjoy.

The guests began the Red Tie Cocktail Event evening with a glass of sparkling champagne in hand to set the mood. They were given red paraphernalia as dress up for their formal attire to symbolize their “ticket” to ride the train. Feathers in hair, glittery hats, ties and bowties, and necklaces were just some of the fashions on display for all the locals observing from a distance, mouths agape.

The guests were from all around the world, local and tourists, journalists, photographers, travel bloggers from India and Germany, and even government officials, such as Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat.

The Open Restaurants team thought of every detail. Meirav Oren, founder of Open Restaurants and Revit Chabakuk, social media manager of Open Restaurants, were there to answer questions and insure everyone was enjoying themselves. Ilanit Melchior, Jerusalem’s Tourism Director, seemed very pleased with the success of the evening. The train was adorned in red ambiance and glowing lights. It was transformed from a regular commuter train into a special venue to celebrate Jerusalem’s enchanting charm.
