Harlequin, the UAE based office, of Arena Middle East & Asia created a memorable bespoke hospitality environment when it was contracted by Tonique Consultancy on behalf of Chivas Regal at the fifth annual edition of the Chivas Legends Dinner.

Held in the opulent surroundings of The Palm hotel in Dubai, actor Jeremy Irons was honoured at the Chivas Legends Dinner. The event was attended by 250 guests representing a range of the industries in the region from business to media.

Harlequin was required to create a luxurious and intimate setting for the guests that incorporated the brand aspirations of Chivas Regal. Led by Event Designer Amy Hawke, the team created a stunning enclosed space within the large Asateer Tent by installing 4m high freestanding walls. Full interior design and fit out with branding was provided throughout.

Guests enjoyed an evening of indulgence in the opulent surrounding as Harlequin created all decorative elements from bespoke bars and food stations to furniture rental. This included bespoke elements such as the stage, an 8m long illuminated bar, and custom dining tables with black leather table tops.

The dining area was presented to guests with the opening of a 10m x 5m red velvet drape reveal. Creative red lighting and live music from a five piece jazz band further infused the exclusive atmosphere as guests were served a five course meal food and blended Chivas Regal cocktails.
