Plant Riverside District is pleased to host the Wednesday Night Social Club on April 5 at District Live, located at 400 W.

“We want to offer the opportunity to enjoy incredible live music as well as perfectly prepared small plates and buzzworthy cocktails in a sultry, candle-lit atmosphere,” said Scotty Henley, Director of Entertainment at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. “We invite everyone to experience an incredible performance by the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra and to sample exceptional food and drink at District Live.”
Culinary highlights will include Ahi Tuna Crudo with Soy Ponzu and Fresno Chili, Assorted Charcuterie and Imported Cheeses, Fresh Ricotta Gnocchi with Bolognese and District Macarons prepared by Plant Riverside District’s Executive Chef Shahin Afsharian, a Michelin Star recipient who has been honored as the JW Marriott Leader of the Year.
Trained by international master chefs including Joël Robuchon, Takeo Yamazaki and Christophe Cussac, Afsharian served as a popular contestant on The Food Network’s hit television show, “Chopped,” where he impressed judges with his versatility, culinary talent and international influences. Originally from Mexico City, Afsharian brings a unique international flair to his culinary projects and is dedicated to creating unforgettable experiences for each and every guest.
On the musical front, the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra will offer a magical mingling of Southern sophistication and sultry, sexy swagger, performing familiar melodies from renowned superstars like Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, Georgia artists including Ray Charles and Otis Redding and Savannah’s own GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter Johnny Mercer. Attendees will enjoy favorite contemporary hits with a generous dose of Motown, country, folk and rock.
Described by Broadway World as “Great American Music at its finest” and by the Savannah Morning News as “one of the hottest tickets in the city,” the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra is led by accomplished musicians Jeremy Davis and Clay Johnson. This popular local Southern big band has been inspired by Rat Pack sophistication and Highwaymen style.
Signature Wednesday Night Social Club cocktails include Est 75 featuring Taittinger Champagne, a Courvoisier-inspired Sidecar, Down, Dirty and Spicy featuring Absolut Elyx and Hidden Treasure featuring Eagle Rare 10.
