Each hotel allows hosts to personalise their event from themed and custom-designed menu options, including a Flamenco-inspired gastronomic journey at Thompson Madrid with bespoke additions like a personal photographer to capture the evening and the option to “take the elevator home” with a special guestroom option for the evening; an Asian-Pacific Northwest fusion menu complete with a whole tomahawk steak to be shared at Thompson Seattle; and a “La Parota,” or “Dinner in the Wild” at Thompson Zihuatanejo, featuring a menu that takes patrons on a culinary adventure through Latin America.

“We see dinner parties as more than just gatherings – they’re a canvas for creativity, a glimpse into the

soul of a destination, and above all, a beautiful way to bring people together,” said Crystal Vinisse, Thomas VP and Global Brand Leader of Hyatt’s lifestyle & luxury brands.

“As an extension of our ongoing Culture Lives Here programming, ‘A Taste of Thompson’ Dinner Parties aims to go beyond the expected, combining Thompson Hotels’ distinctive vibe and elevated culinary approach with the memorable and meaningful connections we often experience when hosting at home.
