What Happens During Harem Night?

Harem Night at Elie’s Tent is one of the anticipated events that happen once a month at the Lebanese-themed restaurant. It is a family affair that brings all ages together – there’s a special treat for everyone, with the parents enjoying the food and the drinks and the children playing with the belly dancers. The friendly ambience of the place, as well as the different Lebanese themed decorations in the restaurant, surely makes every Harem Night an enjoyable themed party.

The evening starts with the restaurant serving mezza from the Lebanese banquet prepared by Mona Jabbour, the matriarch of the family and head chef of the restaurant. Hummus and Tabbouleh, together with other appetisers, prepare the customers for the full Lebanese banquet that is to come.

After we serve the Mezza, the real fun begins! Performances from renowned belly dancers in Perth entertain the crowd with traditional Middle Eastern music that matches every articulation of the hips. Wearing full traditional belly dancing ensemble, the bright red, blue, green and orange colours of their garments and the golden accessories they are adorned with, stealing the sight of the people and surely open the Harem party.

As the night progresses and as every dish part of the Lebanese banquet is devoured, the entertainment also gets better with our dancers enthralling the diners with their enchanting performances by bringing out various belly dancing props like swords, veils, canes and candles. They step up to the Harem Square, a special area at Elie’s Tent to complete the experience of initially being in a Harem where women join together to practice their talents.

The dancers roam around the tables to showcase their dancing and invite the customers to stand up and dance with them. Group of friends and even people who do not know each other hold hands to form a circle and dance together as a community. Kids enjoy the presentation, especially when the dancers teach them belly dancing just for fun. Family and friends all join together to experience a night of good fun and a party ambience.
