Now that mankind has managed to evade the 2012 catastrophe that the Mayans had predicted, it's time to celebrate that and gear up to welcome the new year. Clubs and bars in the Capital are leaving no stone unturned to make this a memorable and wild finale to the year 2012.
At Kitty Su in The Lalit, popular American DJ Ian Carey will spin some house tunes on December 31, alongside flowing imported liquor and dramatic food platters. A VIP section will be created for those looking for an exclusive party experience and a table for 18 in that area will cost Rs 3,30,000. "Apart from unlimited drinks and food, there will be separate entry for our VIP guests, with dedicated bouncers at their service. It's a special day and we want our guests to feel that special," says Saurabh Kumar, Assistant Manager (Revenue), The Lalit.
Jynxx too follows Kitty Su's approach of giving the ultimate, exclusive service to guests, attaching a greater importance to décor this year. "We will have vodka luges made of crystal clear ice, into which the bartender will pour the drinks and the guests can drink directly from them. The concept is quite popular in Europe and the US," says Ashutosh Sharma, Chief Communication Officer at Jynxx. Here, the VIP entry costs Rs 15,000 per couple, while Rs 8,500 gets a couple a 'normal' entry.
Themes too seem to be the toast of the year as many clubs get ready to dress up accordingly. Olive Bar and Kitchen will take the guests back to the year of the flapper girl. Inspired by epic novel The Great Gatsby, their party will have performances from the'20s such as burlesque and cabaret. "The women staff will be dressed in flapper dresses while men will wear long coats," says unit head Anshuman Vyas. The package per person costs Rs 12,000 for unlimited snacks, two buffet spreads and premium alcohol.
