After mingling, a few toasts and cocktails you and your guests can be seated outdoors on the heated terrace for a more casual affair or inside at a private table. The indoor atmosphere provides a nice intimate vibe from the dim lights and luxurious table setups.

During dinner, guests can feel free to take a seat at the Chef’s counter and watch him work! It’s truly astonishing.
Be sure to save room for dessert because Sabaka has the most decadent items on the menu from soy ice cream to miso creme brulee. Finally, to end this unforgettable evening, sip on a nightcap or decaf coffee or head out outside to enjoy the after-hours cigar lounge.
