Tralee is killing it these days with venues opening up left, right and centre, which is wonderful for tourists eager to experience all kinds of hot spots and great for locals too, who we know are always up for a good night out.
The latest addition is Lottie’s, the freshly refurbished, sumptuous eating space at the four-star Ashe Hotel. This place is simply gorgeous; somewhere Gatsby himself might choose to eat if he ever came to Tralee. The décor is decadent, sophisticated and chic, the perfect setting for watching the world go by as you lounge in one of their velvet, scalloped chairs, sipping a cocktail created by mixologists Nicole Sugrue and Diana O’Keeffe who, incidentally, have designed a selection of their own original cocktails and mocktails especially for Lottie’s.
Hotel Stylist Jane Boyle was the woman in charge of design and she’s pretty much nailed it. “We have created a special space for people to dine, celebrate and entertain, a room for a sense of occasion, to toast those beautiful moments in our lives.” Here, here.
Lottie’s cater for such beautiful moments as weddings, christenings, anniversaries, baby showers, retirements and birthdays. Or a boy’s night out. Or indeed a girl’s night out. Everyone’s welcome. Naomi McDonnell, Operations Manager of Food and Beverage says, “We love hosting celebrations, and being part of a family’s special occasion is such a privilege.”
Keeping with the Twenties theme, give ‘The Birdcage’ a whirl (it looks like a period-piece birdcage). This is the hands-on, dining experience ideal for sharing while you chat and catch up with friends. Each ‘Birdcage’ contains three layers of savoury nibbles, with ingredients specially sourced by Head Chef Alex DeGlorie who knows a thing or two about tempting platters. The ‘Birdcages’ launch on Friday 18th March, St. Patrick’s Bank Holiday weekend. Bookings are open and advisable.
