Illuminated in the berrylicious colours of Chambord liqueur Cape Town’s Urban Oasis offered a premium play station for pop up pamper bars (FoxBox, Rain SA and Gorgeous2Go), decadent dining (catered by Executive Chef Tamsyn Wells), trendy tunes by Anthea Scholtz and Francesca Biancoli, and of course, a glass and a half for cocktail-o-clock. #BecauseNoReason

Chambord® is a premium, all-natural black raspberry liqueur whereby every drop is produced at a traditional French chateau situated in the Loire Valley of France following many of the same traditional processes. Today, Chambord® continues to inspire versatile cocktail creations around the world and is considered decadent, flamboyant and a real treat to add to your glass of bubbly. But you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy Chambord®. If you like it, drink it. Why. Because no reason. The Chambord® global mantra inspires women to live their best life however they choose to.
