For twelve straight days, the fifth annual Film Feast offers VIP access to the top libations and dining offerings throughout Santa Barbara, from Jan. 27 to Feb. 7, 2015. Santa Barbara’s Film Feast offerings provide a unique opportunity to savor special dinners and sips before and after SBIFF movies and special events.
Participating partner Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara have designed a flight of movie inspired cocktails to be enjoyed in their Ty Lounge during the SBIFF Film Festival. These masterful mixology cocktails include a Birdman Martini for the Modern Master Award honoring Michael Keaton; the Outstanding Carrell Collins for Outstanding Performance Award honoring Steve Carell, and The Cousteau Margarita for the Attenborough Award honoring the Cousteau Family. The elegant and delicious trio of cocktails is $21.00, and individual cocktails may be enjoyed for $16.00. They can all be savored with delicious Tapas or small plates on the Ty Lounge menu.
The newly renovated and inviting Ty Lounge is a warm and wonderful place to meet with friends and celebrate this year’s award winners, or slip into a bee seat at the colorful bar and spoil yourself. For additional Film Feast dining, beverage and hotel presentations being predsented visit: www.SBFilmFeast.com.
Santa Barbara’s century-long career as a movie backdrop and getaway for top Hollywood talent started during the silent era, and the Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara opened in 1927 and was a hub for the rich and famous of the day where Santa Barbara was California’s original film making hub. Whether scouting sites dating back to Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments (1923), sipping pinot noir on the Sideways (2004) wine trail or watching cutting-edge cinema in historic theatres during the Film Festival, visitors will discover that Santa Barbara looks as good in real life as she does on the big screen.
