A BY FAR DINNER PARTY PLAYLIST

A BY FAR DINNER PARTY PLAYLIST

Over the weekend BY FAR’s Valentina Ignatova teamed up with none other than Parisian writer and broadcaster Camille Charrière for an intimate gathering in the founder’s home.

Taking notes from Camille’s “How to throw a chic (but not boring) dinner party” piece for Harper’s Bazaar, we opted out of pandemic talk and kept glasses full. Be it spicy, coriander-infused tequila cocktails or champagne …

Naturally, the key to any good party is great music – a playlist that sets the mood, starting off softly for when the conversation’s flowing and then moving into our favourite hits for when the lights turn low. Yes, the clubs are still closed but that doesn’t mean we didn’t do some proper dirty dancing.

And just as our co-host recommended, we’d made our own Spotify playlist the night before. Starting with some mellow tunes, through some 80s favourites and finishing with early 00s R&B, these are all the jams that give us summer vibes right now. Play it, pour a glass of your favourite drink and welcome the new season tonight.
