When Jakarta Meets Lon­don – Bring­ing in the Her­itage of The Savoy to the City is an ex­cit­ing se­ries of events that took place be­tween 24th to 27th Au­gust at Fair­mont Jakarta fea­tur­ing the best of the best from The Savoy in Lon­don.

Jakarta's fash­ion­istas and glit­terati flocked to events such as the daz­zling Be a Bond Girl at K22 Bar, which saw The Savoy's award-win­ning mixol­o­gist, Witek Wo­jaczek, from the leg­endary Beau­fort Bar keep­ing the crowd busy with his spe­cially cre­ated free-flow cock­tails. Ser­e­naded with iconic James Bond songs and mu­sic from a pump­ing DJ, the best­dressed Bond Girl won a grand prize from The Savoy, Lon­don. Witek also took over Barong Bar on 25th Au­gust, pre­sent­ing sig­na­ture Beau­fort Bar cock­tails like the Hanky Panky, while guests received red car­pet treat­ment.

For the more culi­nary minded, a leg­endary Bri­tish af­ter­noon tea, as served in The Savoy's famed Thames Foyer, fea­tured at Pea­cock Lounge, pre­pared by Pas­try Chef Luc Bigeard from 24th Au­gust to 6th Septem­ber.

Mean­while, a unique Royal Sun­day Brunch took over Spec­trum, with The Savoy chefs team­ing up with Fair­mont Jakarta's team to present a spe­cial Bri­tish menu, in­clud­ing hot smoked trout with horse­rad­ish, “The Savoy” Prawn and Brown Shrimp Cock­tail, var­i­ous se­lec­tions of fish and chips, and but­ter­milk pan­cakes. The most el­e­gant of the events took place on the evenings of 26th and 27th Au­gust at VIEW Restau­rant & Bar with the Ex­quis­ite Bri­tish Gourmet Din­ner, fea­tur­ing Ex­ec­u­tive Sous Chef Fran­cisco Her­nan­dez from The Savoy col­lab­o­rat­ing with VIEW'S Chef de Cui­sine Hans Chris­tian, who pre­sented the best of Britain in a five­course wine-paired ex­trav­a­ganza.

This was a re­mark­able op­por­tu­nity to in­dulge in over 125 years of The Savoy her­itage. The ho­tel is one of the most cel­e­brated Lon­don land­marks and one of Lon­don's finest lux­ury des­ti­na­tions, where his­tory is made and in­no­va­tion hap­pens. fair­
