Las Iguanas launches bespoke experiences on Airbnb

Jun 07th

Las Iguanas, the South American-inspired restaurant brand owned by Casual Dining Group, has partnered with Airbnb to offer experiences through its accommodation platform.

The brand is offering a monthly “chef’s table” in Bloomsbury hosted by its head of food development Glenn Evans, and cocktail masterclasses at its flagship restaurant at the Southbank Centre.

Participants in the chef’s table will sample dishes from across Latin America, learn about the cuisine in detail and try making their own dish. Head of bar development Luke Neale will host cocktail masterclasses, where participants can make classic cocktails ahead of a three-course meal in the restaurant.

Evans said: “We’ve found so much inspiration on our travels and I enjoy the challenge of translating our discoveries into delicious dishes that taste just as great in the UK as they did on the beach in Rio or on the banks of the Amazon in north west Brazil.”
