DEC 1ST – You are invited to an exclusive Swallow Tail pop-up dinner at the Arts Factory. Experience a private collaboration between four star Vancouver chefs and four cutting edge contemporary artists. Each chef is partnered with one artist and will create mouth watering tapas inspired by the artwork. Guests will meet the chef artist teams for an intimate talk about how their work is created as they sip and taste the evening away. Our mixologists are designing fabulous cocktails for the evening, making this one of the most creative and surprising culinary pop-ups of the year.
