The monsoon has well and truly arrived, and what better way to accompany the sounds of rain and thunder than to mix-in a little jazz. Take shelter at La Planteur and enjoy Bamboo Trio’s jazz performance. The rainy season blues will be blown away by the jazzy melodies.
There will be tapas with duck rillettes, cheese, stuffed mussels and homemade ham, and much, much more. Buy 5 tapas and you’ll receive 1 free tapas of your choice.
There will be wine – an exceptional selection of 32 wines priced from US$5 per glass from La Planteur’s Enomatic machine. To be eligible for your wine, you must follow these 2 easy steps:
Step 1 – Get yourself an Enomatic card and charge the amount you wish.
If you charge US$30 on your card, La Planteur will give you an extra US$10.
Step 2 – Enjoy free access to the wine machine, as you can use this card at any time at Le Planteur.
If getting a glass of wine does not float your boat then you can get a bottle of wine from $39. You can also share it with your friends, as you enjoy the grooves (and the rain outside).
