Russian Old New Year at The Marbella Club Hotel
The Marbella Champagne Room was awash with the sound of smashing glass as Russian Old new Year revelers downed neat vodka shots and hurled their glasses to the floor in the time honoured glass breaking ceremony, На здоровье or cheers I all hear you cry.
Krug champagne accompanied by canapés, and a show by traditional Russian dancers followed swiftly and after the performance, diners took their seats in the Grill Room for an exquisite Russian menu started with traditional Russian blinis and black caviar. During the dinner, guests were treated to a surprise visit by Ded Moroz (Father Frost – Russia’s Santa Claus) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden), who handed out presents including custom-made Swiss chocolates specially made by David & Marketa´s Chocolate Manufacture delicacies.
