‘High energy dance party’ to celebrate ‘new’ Grotto
Union Street Grill and Grotto has re-opened after a transformative week behind closed doors and is inviting the public to a day of celebration at its official unveiling on Saturday, May 12.
Union Street’s “Engagement Party” will feature contests and giveaways all day long, beer and wine tastings between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. and live music from the Jilli Martini Band starting at 8 p.m. Jet FM will be broadcasting live from the event, and guests will enjoy a 15 per cent discount on all food, all day long.
Along with the Grotto’s funky new look, which features sleek leather bucket chairs and comfortable leather benches, fans of Union Street will enjoy a brand new menu that’s available on both sides of the restaurant.
“We’d been hearing from our customers that they want to be able choose between the more classic, full-service restaurant experience of Union Street Grill and the more casual, lounge-type milieu of the Grotto without having to choose one menu or the other,” explains Danielle Duncan, who owns Union Street Grill & Grotto with her husband Mark, who’s also the chef. “So now we have one menu for both venues. It has everything that’s been on offer at the Grill, plus a few of the most popular items from the Grotto.”
Daytime celebrations, which will also feature games, toys and a “kids corner” for youngsters, kick off at 11 a.m. and run until 4 p.m. Dinner-time festivities begin at 5 p.m. and will feature great deals on Phillips beers and Vincor wines. The party culminates with the Jilli Martini Band from “8 ‘til late.”
“We’re looking forward to rocking the Grotto like it’s never been rocked before,” warns Martini. “Be warned, this will be a high energy dance party to celebrate the grand opening of the new Grotto!”
Tickets for the Jilli Martini Band are available for $15 at the Grotto.
The Union Street Grill and Grotto is located at 477 Fifth Street. For more information, call 250-897-0081
