In Celebration of the Season 7 Finale of HBO's "Game of Thrones"

San Francisco's Hottest Pop-Up Dinner
Comes to Silicon Valley!

An Art of Flavor Experience

The Silicon Valley Edition
An "Enhanced" Thematic Immersive Experience

After 7 weeks of sell-out dinners in San Francisco, our last date selling out in less than
3 HOURS after publicly announcing, Art of Flavor is very excited to bring our "Taste of Thrones" experience down the peninsula to Silicon Valley's historical landmark: Corinthian Grand Ballroom showcasing the talents of Chef Arturo Barragan and his own culinary interpretation of the HBO television show phenomenon "Game of Thrones". 

We will be taking everything we have learned and refined after 6 weeks of executed dinners and incredible customer feedback, to deliver the ultimate culminating experience.  And it wouldn't be in the spirit of Silicon Valley without an upgrade, right?  So to build upon our San Francisco event, we will be dramatically "enhancing" the Silicon Valley experience with costumed actors, live entertainment, additional theatrics & decor!  And what more appropriate time for this unique dinner experience than the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Finale Weekend?  

So come eat like a Stark and drink like a Lannister!

Born and raised in Mexico's Guadalajara, Jalisco, Executive Chef Arturo Barragan decided he wanted to make something of his life. That's when he immigrated to the United States at the age of 15. He got his first job and began his career in the restaurant industry as a dishwasher at restaurant Hoolligan, where he began to watch closely and became passionate about culinary artistry. In 1987, He went on to become a Sous Chef at Fairmont Hotel's Lés Saisons Restaurant and Lounge for 9 years. During these years he also worked at the Silicon Valley Capital Club until he was offered the Executive Chef position at Capitol Club Athletics, which later became Corinthian Grand Ballroom.  Barragan also now serves as Executive Chef for Silicon Valley's other premier event space: The GlassHouse.   During his long culinary career, Barragan has had the pleasure to serve many famous names such as Clint Eastwood, Jerry Rice and former 49ers coach Bill Walsh. He's cooked for many other famous NFL players, politicians, and senior executives from well known company's such as Cisco Systems, Google, Universal Records and many more.  Being a huge GoT fan, Barragan is delighted to apply his culinary artistry towards a "Game of Thrones" inspired dinner!



Paul Abbey brings over 18 years experience in the wine and spirits industry.  He is a certified sommelier, certified wine specialist, as well as a wine & spirits education trust.  Currently, Abbey is the sommelier for the SAP Center and San Jose Sharks and has hosted high-end wine-tasting events for some of Silicon Valley's top senior executives in the tech industry.  Abbey has previously served as sommelier for Art of Flavor's extremely successful pop-up wine bar & live music lounge "Oak & Barrel" in 2016.  His incredible knowledge of wine, his very talented public speaking skills and his witty sense of humor make him the perfect candidate to curate and lead our "Taste of Thrones" Tyrion Lannister wine-pairing experience!



Jason Seele is considered one of the top mixologists in the Bay Area. He is most famous for skyrocketing to stardom the handcrafted cocktail bar “Jack Rose Libation House” in Los Gatos. Under his creative direction, Jack Rose has won multiple awards for its bar program, including Best Cocktail Bar in the South Bay.  Seele has also had great success in national and international cocktail competitions, competing and winning King of the Stick, Master of the Mule, The Real McCoy, finishing in the top of the Woodford Reserve Manhattan Experience, the International Bacardi Legacy, and one of 15 best West Coast bartenders at the most prestigious cocktail competition in the world: World Class.  Seele's tremendous knowledge of bourbons makes him the perfect candidate to curate and lead our "Taste of Thrones" Jon Snow bourbon-pairing experience!


196 N 3rd St, San Jose, CA 95112

Located in the heart of historic downtown San Jose, this 1924 landmark was originally built as a Scottish Rite Temple serving the Masonic Order.  Today it serves as one of the most breathtaking event spaces in Silicon Valley.  As guests walk up its broad granite steps, past the enormous urns and soaring columns, they'll be impressed by the stately elegance of its neoclassic design. That sense of awe only increases as you enter the Grand Ballroom, designed with majestic features such as a 60-foot ceiling has massive wood beams and is inset with alternating panes of blue glass and intricately detailed panels of gold leaf grillwork. Six extraordinary wrought-iron and glass lanterns hang from the ceiling like giant luminous earrings.  At one end of the room is a stage with a carved stone proscenium framed by red velvet curtains. At the other end is a carved granite balcony.  The extraordinary building also hosts a gorgeous bar lounge with hand-painted mural ceilings, wrought-iron chandeliers, a fireplace, candles and ornate wood fixtures to give a lot of warmth to the room.  A fun Hollywood trivia fact: Corinthian Grand Ballroom was featured in the 1997 film "Mad City" starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta!
