Events Highlight



VIP Prive Party – Hosted by JM Lexus

The Prive is a more intimate gathering held from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the beautiful Stranahan House. Guests will be offered appetizers provided by Capital Grille and Publix Aprons Catering, special wines as well as entertainment. There will even be an engraver selling personalized bottles of William Hill wine, the perfect gift! In addition, guests will receive their tasting glass and plate upon arrival which means when the Street Festival officially opens at 7:30pm, they are among the very first to participate!

Specialty Lounges

Bombay Sapphire Lounge: As a staple of the Las Olas Wine & Food Festival, the lounge is where festival guests go to experience custom cocktails like the Bombay Sapphire Raspberry Collins. The Sapphire Raspberry Collins is a modern twist on an old favorite that incorporates freshly squeezed lemons, ripe raspberries, and delicious Bombay Sapphire Gin. At Bombay, they are passionate about producing the finest gin possible. Distilled with 10 precious botanicals, Bombay Sapphire Gin is a complex aromatic liquid that delivers a broader, more balanced flavor.

New Amsterdam Shave Lounge: For the first time at the LOWFF, guests will experience the New Amsterdam Shave Lounge, an early 1900s-style barbershop / bar setup that will offer free straight-razor shaves, shoe shines, and of course cocktails. The 10-foot by 20-foot experience features a dark wood bar, shaving stations and a shoe shine chair.

LaMarca Prosecco:  For the first time at the LOWFF, there will be an area solely designated to the HOTTEST Prosecco on the market, La Marca. This is the perfect opportunity to try the #1 Prosecco nationwide in volume sales.  This Italian sparkling wine is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit. The finish is light and refreshing, perfect for any occasion.

Shellback Caribbean Rum Hut: For the 2nd year now, the Shellback Caribbean Hut will have an offering of delicious rum cocktails to sample. Sourced from the finest Caribbean sugarcane, and blended with twelve spices and other natural flavors, Shellback is a modern rum for discerning palates.

After Party: The celebration will continue after the festival ends at the annual Bombay Sapphire after party, taking place at Vibe Las Olas. Beginning at 10pm, Vibe will be the place to be for a night of Sapphire cocktails, music and fun!
