For the fourth year, Le Diner en Blanc will be hosting their annual dinner in Nairobi; offering consumers an exclusive all-white dining experience and entertainment at a secret pre-determined location.
Bystanders will witness groups of guests all dressed in white gathering all across the city. Guided by Diner en Blanc volunteers, these groups will then converge in one of the city’s most beautiful setting. Every guest brings their own gourmet feast, table, chairs and table setting.

Participation to this unique event happens in three stages: Phase 1 is for members who attended the previous year, Phase 2 is for new members who are referred by Phase 1 attendees; and Phase 3 is for people who signed up on the waiting list.
We are excited to create a one-of-a-kind experience with Cîroc for the Diner en Blanc afterparty. We believe this partnership will go a long way to create new exciting experiences for our consumers and bringing out the spirit of magical entertainment, said Chepkorir Koech, EABL Reserve Brand Manager.
The evening is filled with visually breath-taking moments including the waving of a cloth napkin to mark the beginning of the dinner and the lighting of sparklers to let guests know they are now free to mingle and dance. At the end of the evening, guests will pack up all of their belongings, pick up all their litter and head back into the night, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
