We are so stoked for the first edition of The Night Market, an exciting collaboration between Anchor & Den and The Mercantile, taking place tonight from 6pm. It is going to be the ultimate shopping experience that includes live music, delicious street food, handcrafted cocktails, family activities and lots of retail inspiration just in time for Father’s Day weekend!
The Night Market will offer our now famous G&T pop-up bar, a Don Julio bar with yummy tequila-based cocktails and an array of irresistible street food stalls that will feature Indian food, a special Boulangerie stall with homemade tartines and quiches, a Wine and Charcuterie station, plus so much more. Food purchased at the Night Market can also be packaged to take home so that it can be enjoyed for breakfast or lunch over the weekend.
Another fun addition to the evening is our special guest, Alice Saunders from Forestbound. Her fabulous ‘Grand Cayman’ and ‘Endless Summer’ canvas bags have been a huge hit on the island! During the Night Market, Alice will be taking over one of our retail stalls, showcasing some exclusive Forestbound items and offering a complimentary monogramming service for guests who have purchased one of her bags from The Mercantile.
We asked Alice to tell us the story of Forestbound and what her inspiration was for creating this wonderful company. She told us: “To be honest, Forestbound kind of happened by accident! About 10 years ago I decided to sell the canvas and leather handbags that I was making on the side while working 2 full time jobs and people loved the bags so much that it quickly turned into a thriving full time business. I’ve always loved sewing and working with my hands and to have it now be my full time job is something that I am thankful for every single day.” We are so excited to have Alice with us tonight!
Other cool brands that will showcased in the retail stalls are: Rhone (men’s active wear), Men’s swimwear by Retromarine, Wild & Wolf (Gentlemen’s Hardware), Etnia sunglasses and Candylab wooden toy cars.
Last but not least, we will be offering a complimentary wrapping station to beautifully package all the gifts that are purchased at the event.
Entrance to the Night Market is complimentary but to purchase food and drinks, guests will be invited to buy tickets at our dedicated Ticket Station. All retail items can be purchased with cash or credit card.
The restaurant, bar and lounge are open as usual, but reservations for tables are highly recommended. Reservations can be made on www.AnchorAndDen.com via OpenTable.
