Event Details

Gather at stunning No.10, a hidden gem on Court Square, for an intimate screening of The Genius of the Place, an acclaimed 2023 documentary celebrating the magic of Sri Lanka’s legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa. Director Afdhel Aziz will answer questions about the making of the film, as expert mixologists from Smoke & Bitters craft cracking cocktails – some of which include Rockland dry gin, reputedly a favourite drink of Bawa himself.

Drinks included in ticket price.

With special thanks to Wine World for kindly sponsoring this event.

No.10 is also playing host to an exhibition curated by Curado Art Space. Her Vision, Her Voice: Celebrating Female Artists of Sri Lanka includes a selection of thought-provoking works from across the island.

About your host…

Voted one of the 50 Best Bars in Asia for 2022 & 2023, Smoke & Bitters is undoubtedly Hiriketiya’s favourite cocktail spot. This bar and smokehouse’s fame has spread far beyond the horseshoe bay, and we’re thrilled to have the team join us in Galle Fort over the Festival weekend. With an ever-changing menu crafted from house-made bitters, syrups and local spirits, you can expect sensational cocktails – and a real taste of Sri Lanka.
