CARATS & COCKTAILS AT BALTHAZAR
Date: 29th September - 29th October
Flirting and seduction come together in cocktails and rings.
Balthazar Champagne Bar's universe of luxury and quality is matched by rings, made especially for the Carat & Cocktails exhibition:
From September 29 to October 29, Balthazar Champagne Bar puts on a fantastic room and a special cabinet for the exhibition "Carats & Cocktails". Here, the audience can experience 31 cocktail rings from some of Denmark's best goldsmiths and Jewelery designers. Each ring is inspired by and color coordinated with one iconic Balthazar cocktail, for example Dry Martini, Gin & Tonic, Margarita, Espresso Martini and Aperol Spritz.
A cocktail ring is brightly colored thanks to beautiful gemstones. Originally, these types of rings were worn during illegal drinking parties held in the middle of the American Prohibition era (1920-1933), where alcohol was banned. When you finally got the opportunity to party freely, your ring should also be seen. Today, the rings are a glamorous hit on the red carpets at film premieres and award ceremonies. Curator Nina Hald states: "The 31 goldsmiths and Jewelery designers have been inspired by 31 iconic drinks, and each presents a fantastic unique ring for the exhibition. During Prohibition in the 1920s, the extravagant cocktail ring was invented, and today's artists have been inspired by it. The cocktail rings immortalize the tasty and intoxicating in noble materials, and the rings illustrate a century's iconic drink story”.
Balthazar opening hours: Wednesday 6pm - 12pm
Thursday & Friday 4pm - 2am
Saturday 2pm - 2am
