LONDON, England – The stars of Momentum Pictures’ latest film were joined by A-list friends and VIPs as they celebrated the world premiere of the stylish new, art heist caper, Gambit.
After walking the red carpet at the Empire Leicester Square, the filmmakers and their famous fans made the short journey to the beautiful Massimo Restaurant&Oyster Bar at Corinthia Hotel London.
On arrival, the star cast was greeted with a special Gambit cocktail made with eucalyptus-infused gin blended with orange bitters, wormwood bitters, and acacia honey. Created by the expert mixologist team at Bassoon, Corinthia London’s chic cocktail bar, “Gambit,” will be on the cocktail menu for a limited period for hotel guests and visitors to try.
Bets are on to see if the cocktail will be as popular as The King’s Speech, a Champagne and Chambord concoction created to celebrate the multiple BAFTA and Academy Award winning British film. The cocktail became a firm favorite with guests and was made a permanent fixture on Bassoon’s cocktail menu due to popular demand.
Guests at the after party were also treated to delicious warm and cold canapes including Monmouthshire pork and apple sausage roll with mustard sauce, baby asparagus tart with Beenleigh Blue cheese, and risotto beignet with Jerusalem artichoke and parsley.
“Last summer before shooting began, an intimate dinner for the cast and filmmakers was held in the private dining room of Massimo Restaurant&Oyster Bar. We are delighted that they have returned to toast the world premiere of the film,” said Matthew Dixon, General Manager, Corinthia Hotel London.
GAMBIT will be released in cinemas cross the UK&Ireland on November 21 by Momentum Pictures.
