Be a pink warrior

This October colour your friendships pink with Esplanade’s chic ritual and support a story with a humanitarian message

Bring your lady friends to the Esplanade 1925 Lounge & Cocktail bar, don a pink outfit, indulge in the sweetest pink moments, and use your influence to encourage others to get an early screening of potential life importance. 


For the second year in a row, in cooperation with non-profit association P.I.N.K. life, the iconic Esplanade Hotel is marking the global initiative Pink Ribbon Month, a humanitarian story you can take part in. Namely, the whole month of October at the Esplanade Hotel is dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer prevention and the fight against this vicious disease, which is why the chosen hue of the popular Afternoon Tea is pink. Chef of the Year 2022 Ana Grgić Tomić and award-winning pastry chef Mirjana Špoljar have joined forces and on this occasion designed several tempting snacks and pink desserts, served on a tiered stand with premium Ronnefeldt tea in a teapot. From each amount, the hotel will set aside 10%, and the money will be donated to the P.I.N.K. life association at the end of the month. Additionally, to announce the project and support for this global initiative, the façade of the Esplanade Hotel will be illuminated in pink this weekend.


Be a pink warrior
You, too, can be a part of this story. From 7th – 31st October bring a female friend or a loved one into the cosmopolitan ambiance of the Esplanade Lounge & Cocktail Bar or the Oleander Terrace and do the right thing – encourage yourself, your mothers, female friends and colleagues, but also all women, to think about the most important thing there is – their health. With a chic afternoon tea, choose a pink drink and take a selfie. Post the photo, tagged with #PinkAfternoonTea #PinkLife #PinkOctober, share the mood, and use your influence to help raise awareness through social media. In doing so, you can win an amazing weekend for two at the Esplanade Hotel!


Pink treats for a refined palate
The Esplanade’s afternoon tea ritual offers a true gourmet treat in the centre of Zagreb. In the pink edition, you will be welcomed with snacks like salmon marinated in beetroot juice, croquettes made of kulen salami and herbs, crispy baskets filled with curd mousse, followed by sweet snacks in the form of pink macarons with dried rose petals, ruby cake cubes with raspberries, lollypops with strawberries and gold dust, hibiscus cupcakes, and rosehip and white chocolate panna cotta.


Raise a toast with a pink cocktail 
Premium cocktail master and Bar Manager Vjenceslav Madić, Kishoni has created for this occasion a series of pink cocktails that perfectly round off the story and the overall experience. Villa Sandi Prosecco Rosé, Rossecco, pink gin and tonic, or the Esplanade pink fizz – we are sure that each one will delight you.
