Venkadesh stands tall in 2nd position at the Global Sake Sommelier Competition!

Venkadesh Sake Competition 2nd Place

He’s done it! Congratulations to Venkadesh, our Healey’s Bar & Terrace Manager, for achieving an outstanding 2nd place in the recent Global Sake Sommelier of the Year competition! For more details about the competition, read our previous blog post here.

Venkadesh was one of six semi-finalists, who battled it out at the final, which was held in London on 23rd November 2015.

We’re all very proud that one of our team-members represented us and the UAE at this prestigious annual event and finished in the top two!

We wish Venkadesh all the very best for the future! Who knows, he might just grab the trophy for us at next year’s Sake Sommelier competition!

It’s definitely a great start to the festive season. If you’re looking to celebrate, we’ve got some great offers and events at the Bonnington. Check out the details here.

You have experienced the Cavendish taste indoors, now experience it outdoors on the newly opened Cavendish Terrace. Located under the shade of the impressive Bonnington Tower and set amongst lush greenery and water features, you can now lunch, brunch, or dine al fresco at the Cavendish.

Enjoy breakfast in the sun, a quick lunch with colleagues outdoors, or a romantic dinner by candlelight, all while experiencing the same great food and service you have come to expect from the Cavendish, but with added fresh air and views of the bustling Almas Tower neighbourhood in JLT.

Why not pop in this month & try the Cavendish dessert of the month?
