CALGARY — Fairmont Palliser has named Jean-Michel Buffard as its new director of Food and Beverage. Buffard will be bringing live music and events back to the hotel’s Hawthorn Dining Room and Bar this spring.
Following the success of pop-up events such as Tipsy Parrot Rum Shack, a Caribbean-inspired pop-up bar and holiday pop-up Tipsy Elf, Fairmont Palliser will be welcoming guests back to enjoy DJ J every Friday night and live jazz on Saturdays and Sundays from Michelle Joly Trio, Chance Devlin and SallieMae.
“We are extremely excited to be able to re-energize the hotel with live music and events,” says Buffard. “Hawthorn Dining Room and Bar provides the perfect opportunity for people to let loose after the difficulties of the last two years. We invite everyone to come, be entertained and allow us to take care of you.”
