Since opening at the end of April this year, Charlotte’s In The Pantiles has enjoyed huge success thanks to its quality cocktails, delicious sharing plates and welcoming ambience. It recently announced that it will end its first year in business with a Cuban-themed New Year’s Eve party – tickets for which are currently on sale. Eileen Leahy discovers more about this special occasion that promises to be a great way to see in 2024…
Having only opened its polished monogrammed glass doors at the end of April, Charlotte’s In The Pantiles has been a runaway success and certainly secured itself a top spot as one of Tunbridge Wells’ best food and drink venues given the support it’s had since it launched.
Its Operations Director is Adam Peters-Ennis (pictured top left), who has been in the drinks industry all of his life. Firstly this was at the sharp end, working in some of London’s most prestigious and famous bars: think Hakkasan, Isola, Nobu Berkeley St and The Connaught – and latterly on the corporate side of things.
“I think in essence we have created a high-end hospitality offering,” says Adam,
It’s no wonder that Charlotte’s founder and Creative Director Emma Wright, was able to turn the vision she had of creating an upmarket cocktail bar in Tunbridge Wells into a reality courtesy of Adam’s expert knowledge. But both credit Charlotte’s overall team, its loyal clients and also a slew of excellent local suppliers for the success of the business.
And to celebrate such a successful 2023 Charlotte’s is hosting a special New Year’s Eve party which will have a Cuban theme.
Tickets are priced at £75 per person and will include a glass of Drappier Premier Cru Champagne on arrival, as well as two Cuban-style cocktails from the Charlotte’s menu. There will also be two servings of Cuban-inspired light bites at 8pm and 11pm as well as access to The Pantiles’ New Year’s celebrations to which tickets usually cost £15 per person.
“So, why not see the New Year in with us at Charlotte’s for a night of Cuban-inspired cocktails and food,” suggests Adam before adding: “As W.B. Yeats famously said… There are no strangers here, only friends you haven’t met yet…”
