‘The Garden’ At Oreya Hosts Party With a Purpose

A cocktail party with Simple Vodka closes out the summer

This weekend closed out another summer for the books. To celebrate, The Independent hosted a cocktail party at “The Garden” at Oreya along with Simple Vodka on Friday, August 31. “The Garden” is located at the Capri Hotel in Southampton.

For the past month, the venue has housed the Brooklyn Chop House pop-up restaurant, which will open its permanent location in the Financial District this week. The dinner menu offered a variety of dumplings and homemade noodles, small plates, and entrees. The menu lent itself nicely to shared plates, making this a great place to go with a group. The winner of the meal was the French onion soup dumpling. But the Peking duck taco, chicken satay, and rock shrimp tempura were all contenders. The new restaurant will also offer lunch and brunch.

The great thing about hosting a party with Simple Vodka is that for every drink served, a meal is donated to someone in need in the U.S. One drink equals one meal, making it a party with a purpose. Simple also won the Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition the past two years. This can be credited to vodka with no added sugar, flavors, or preservatives, created in a fully sustainable distillery.
