The very first time we met she looked deeply into my doubting eyes with a cheeky grin which revealed her intention to read between my lines. “Let me prepare my suggestion and if you don’t like it, you can always order something else” she concluded convincingly and waited eagerly for my confirmation.
Her personalized cocktail was far from a miss. After my first sip of that attractive crystal clear pinkish concoction which had been decorated with romantic floating flower petals, Hannah Van Ongevalle rose to my eyes as something more than the best bartender in Belgium. Her exceptional social skills and captivating looks unfold a communicative and impressively perceptive person who can grasp the very essence of her co-speaker.
She elevates the cocktail as not merely a combination of ingredients. It is a true pairing, a mingling process of tastes, colors, textures and aromas that reflect emotions, attitudes and moods. They can even evoke feelings and alter your state of mind. It is truly a wonder how this young, classy yet nothing but classic lady has managed to set my mind off shoes and on cocktails for more than once.
I am delighted to invite you to meet Hannah in person at the La Greca launch event “The Art of Mingling” in Knokke, Belgium, on 28 May 2015. The Antique Shop, a brand new concept that is bound to become one of the coziest and atmospheric event venues in the region, will host Hannah Van Ongevallefrom 20:00 till 23:00, who will spend time and mingle with every person in the room to create personalized cocktails for every single guest. The venue will also be decorated with artworks by artist and Doctor of Chemistry Jorg Schelfhout, who mixes materials in a sophisticated and innovative way in order to create landscapes and portraits of unique aesthetic.
Meet, drink and feast your eyes on the “Art of Mingling”.
