Champagne Ritual at the St. Regis

It’s seven o’clock and the mood for happy hour strikes. I decide to treat myself to something different than the usual bar and go to a place with extra class, so I head to try out the famous Champagne Ritual at the St. Regis Hotel.
I’m ready to see the “sabrage” ritual — opening the champagne bottle with a saber!

This is a place brimming with feeling — that’s the only way I can think to describe the relaxing atmosphere enjoyed on the comfortable sofas in their winter garden.
A talented pianist accompanies the soft patter of guests’ talking and the reception is truly worthy of its 5 stars.

Gianni seats us and brings us three mixed plates and a small plate with an oyster. But it’s Andrea who acts as master of the house, opening a bottle of champagne with a single strike of a saber, after a moment’s concentration. With a full glass, my evening of fun and luxury can get underway.

Definitely an experience to be had! Afterwards you might want to stop for dinner at their restaurant “Winter Garden by Caino,” which just earned a Michelin star in January.
