Last Thursday, patrons experienced a tantalising Steak and Wine Night at the ROK Hotel in downtown Kingston.

With a promise to redefine Thursday nights, this delectable getaway has become one to look forward to, setting a new standard for evening indulgence. Hosted at the hotel's enchanting rustic-chic restaurant, Palate, the event offered a perfect blend of sophistication and relaxation.

Guests were treated to a sumptuous feast featuring the finest cuts of steak, expertly prepared to perfection by executive chef Volae Williams and thoughtfully paired with an exquisite selection of wines. The ambience was nothing short of magical, with dimmed lights, cosy corners, and acoustic melodies creating an intimate and welcoming atmosphere.

As the sun set over Kingston, the Steak and Wine Night at ROK Hotel's Palate proved that it's more than just a meal; it's an experience that leaves a lasting imprint on the soul, ensuring that Thursday nights will never be the same again.
