Londres 126 comes alive with a sensory dining experience inspired by Frida Kahlo
The latest jewel of the Milpa Collective hospitality group, Londres 126 speaks opulence, indulgence, and style. Meticulously designed in a heritage building on Loftus Street, the 1940s inspired venue is rich in timeless detail. Its namesake – the residency of Frida Kahlo.
Inspired by Frida Kahlo’s infamous parties of yore, Londres 126 will be premiering a lavish variety show, “VIVA LA FRIDA – THE REVOLUTION” on Saturday 26th March, which combines a 5-piece performance with a carefully curated set menu and a late-night dance party.
Set over two seatings, the event caters to those of all ages and party inclinations. The earlier seating follows a more traditional ‘dinner and a show’ format, where guests can enjoy a 3-course menu of Frida’s favourites dishes while being taken on a journey of discovery and history through performance art by Sydney’s most talented and diverse performers.
The menu will feature dishes that habitually made it onto Ms Kahlo’s dinner party menu, including Guacamole, chicharron crackling and chips, 8 hour Braised chamorro osso bucco, Mexican gnocchi chochoyotes, Jicama Salad with radicchio and butter lettuce, Crushed potatoes with duck fat and garlic chips, plus a special traditional Mexican dessert, buñuelos with pineapple sorbet infused with Milpa’s in-house Mezcal. The five performance acts will showcase different elements of Frida’s life – from her emotional and physical pain experienced from a young age, her turbulent relationship with Diego Rivera, her involvement in communism, the rejection of her own sexual identification and most of all, her revolutionary art.
After 10:30pm the dining room will transform into a dance floor, with 1940’s electronic booty swing beats playing non-stop until 2am, allowing guests to feast and truly party like Frida.
Director of Milpa Collective, Pablo Galindo Vargas, says: “We want to treat our guests to an experience like none other currently available in Sydney. VIVA LA FRIDA is so much more than dinner and a show, it’s a multi-sensory dining experience that will take our diners on a journey of hedonistic pleasure and late-night revelry”.
“Sydney’s nightlife is going to change dramatically within the next year, and we’re so excited that we’re playing a role in bringing it back to its former glory,” Pablo added.
