We recently introduced the new event space at Andina, but have since gotten this great photo.

A Gathering Space
Tupai, borrowed from the Quechua word for “gathering space,” will accommodate up to 60 guests for a seated dinner and 100 guests for a stand-up reception or cocktail party. The menu will feature Andina’s NovoAndean cuisine, which combines traditional flavors and ingredients native to Peru with a global reach that draws from Spanish, Japanese and Cantonese culinary influences. Dishes are prepared using modern technique and presented with finesse and flair. The full bar will deliver both Andina’s classic and NovoAndean cocktails – from the Pisco Sour and Caipirinha to the Sacsayhuamán and Granada de Amor. Wines will be chosen from Andina’s award-winning list with the help of wine director Ken Collura.

Tupai features include:

* Fully stocked cocktail and wine bar

* Dedicated state-of-the-art kitchen

* Mezzanine space for musical performances or VIP seating

* Incan design motifs carved into a backlit floor-to-ceiling wall; hand-made oversized pendants

* Natural elements ranging from natural light to exposed brick, 20 foot ceilings and original wooden beams

* Prix-fixe and custom menus featuring Andina’s nationally recognized NovoAndean cuisine

* High-speed internet access, in-house projection and screens

Asscher Cut Diamonds are extremely popular. It may surprise you to learn that this cut is actually a vintage style with a modern update. The modern asscher cut diamonds have more facets, a larger table, and smaller clipped corners than their vintage counterparts.

You can find a large selection of Asscher Cut Diamonds at Judith Arnell Jewelers in the Pearl District.

You’ve worked so hard to look good in your dress. You’ve been sweating, tanning, dieting.. ahhh! Why not celebrate your amazing self with a photo shoot focused on you?! The Peek-a-Boo album, at only 2″x 3″, is a cute little book that has a certain sense of nostalgia about it. Reminiscent of pin-up postcards, the Peek-a-Boo album is the perfect thing to slip into his coat pocket before a business trip. 😉 wink wink!

Schedule an appointment to see a few Peek-a-Boo options and pricing.
