(Venice, Italy) Since its inauguration, the list of celebrities who have turned up and danced on the tables at PalazzinaG reads like a who's who of Vanity Fair cover stars. Madonna has taken to the decks, George Clooney has popped in, and couples Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie -- along with Johnny Deep and Vanessa Paradis -- have stayed in. Queen of New York nightlife, Amy Sacco, has hosted a series of legendary parties, James Franco threw a dinner and Al Pacino didn't want to leave...
That is from the press release sent over by the glam gals at Meredith Bespoke, the luxury events agency in London. PalazzinaG is not only one of my favorite hotels in Venice, but on the planet itself, so I am happy to let you know what they are up to during Carnevale. The renowned Philippe Starck designed PalazzinaG, mixing the contemporary with the ancient, the sensual with the cozy. Located on the Grand Canal right next to Palazzo Grassi, it will be The Place to Be during the opening Carnival weekend, so book now, especially if you want to sleep in -- there are only 16 rooms and six suite apartments. And the mirrors... the mirrors... the mirrors... the mirrors will take you right through the Looking Glass.
There will be a VIP masquerade opening party on Friday night at 11:00PM with cocktails mixed by Nardini Grappa, nominated as Harrod's February 2012 "Spirit of the Month." Entrance is 35 euros, including one cocktail; tables are 600 euros and includes two bottles of Krug or spirits.
On Saturday night at 8:00PM, it's the Veuve Clicquot Gala, the champagne of nobility, with a five-course decadent dinner and luxurious libations at 250 euros per person. The VIP Masquerade Afterparty featuring international DJ Anthony Scott-Lee kicks off at 11:30PM. Entrance is 35 euros; tables start at 600 euros.
For all events the dress is code is impulsive elegance and deconstructed glamor. Now, doesn't that sound delicious? Reservations are essential. The full invitation is below.
