Social Event

Unforgettable Evening at the Domaine du Lac Kir

Thursday 11, 19:00 - 23:30

Our Social event will take place at the Domaine du Lac Kir, a placed on the banks of the Kir Lake, also known as Lac Kir. The Kir Lake is a man-made lake located in Dijon, the capital city of the Burgundy region in France. It was created in the 19th century by a local politician named Felix Kir, who had a vision of transforming the area into a recreational spot for the residents. The lake is fed by the Ouche River and covers an area of around 37 hectares. It has a scenic walking trail around its circumference and offers a variety of activities such as boating, fishing, and swimming. The area around Kir Lake is also known for its vineyards, making it a popular spot for wine tasting tours.

The Lake name is a reference to the famous Kir French cocktail, wich is made with a measure of crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) topped up with white wine. In France it is usually drunk as an apéritif before a meal or snack. It was originally made with Bourgogne Aligoté, a white wine of Burgundy, but today various white wines are used throughout France, according to the region and the barkeeper. It used to be called blanc-cassis, but it is now named after Félix Kir (1876–1968), mayor of Dijon in Burgundy. Kir was a pioneer of the twinning movement in the aftermath of the Second World War, and popularized the drink by offering it at receptions to visiting delegations.


Dinner will be brightened by the presence of the "Miroir" Group, who are a local group. Sabrina performs Jazz, Swing and contemporary pieces adapted to jazz with Jérémy, Francois and Philippe. They are a group that love any kind of music and love to interpret as many genre as possible to make it their own.
