Inspired By The East At The British Museum
with Two Course Set Menu At Charlotte Street Hotel
available 10 October 2019 - 26 January 2020

This autumn, enjoy a two course menu and bespoke cocktail at Charlotte Street Hotel’s Oscar Bar & Restaurant before or after a visit to The British Museum, just a 10 minute walk away from the hotel, to see their current exhibition Inspired by the East.

Charting the fascinating history of cultural and artistic interactions between East and West, this exhibition explores the impact the Islamic world has had on Western art for centuries. Objects from Europe, North America, the Middle East and North Africa highlight a centuries-old tradition of influence and exchange from East to West.

The diverse selection of objects includes ceramics, photography, glass, jewellery and clothing, as well as contemporary art, showcasing how artistic exchange influenced a variety of visual and decorative arts. The exhibition concludes with a 21st-century perspective, through the eyes of four female artists from the Middle East and North Africa who continue to question and subvert the idea of Orientalism in their work.

The talented Oscar bartenders have created a special Ambrosia cocktail created with Ketel One vodka, cardamom and pomegranate grenadine with fresh mint and Pierre Mignon Champagne to be enjoyed alongside a seasonal two-course lunch or dinner.

£45 per person including tickets for the exhibition with a two-course set menu and Ambrosia cocktail at Oscar Bar & Restaurant.
