Lots of choice for New Year’s celebrations
Some Barbadians may be paying a pretty penny to bring in the New Year in style.
From earlier this month and beyond some hotels and restaurants announced their events and they have been well received.
And one of the hot spots come “Old Year’s Night” will be in the north of Barbados at Nikki Beach, Port Ferdinand Retreat. General Marie-Claire Holthuizen told THE NATION they are expecting to cater to hundreds of people.
“We announced it and within a week or so, we were 50 percent booked and now we can announce we have a few tickets left. But all the dinner tables have been sold out and we also have VIP sofas and I think we have two left out of those, so we are expecting about 400 people to come tomorrow,” she said.
Packages start at $200 and patrons can expect to receive value for money as they take in entertainment provided by a live band, two deejays, seven performers, an aerial acrobatics displays and hand balancing show.
During the evening there will be a lavish five-course dinner and the best champagnes including brands such as Salmanazar of Perrier-Jouët, Grand Brut Dom Perignon & Ace of Spades and a Methuselah of Cristal.
Similarly, the Cliff, in Durants, St James is also offering all-inclusive event. During the Space Cowboys event, there will be a premium bar, entertainment and fantastic fireworks shooting off from nearby. Their package is $1 700.
In the south, the Hilton Barbados Resort is staging an event entitled Spellbound: A Night Under The Stars, where patrons can treat themselves to a buffet along with unlimited beverages, a dazzling fireworks display and entertainment provided by Barbadian entertainer Elan Trotman.
While a Hilton representative disclosed that the event at the resort is fully booked according to their social media pages, the $350 tickets are selling like “hot cakes” for New Years Eve.
For those who prefer to fete, the staple Old-Years event Elevate Suit and Tie is back, and this year the event heads to Bellevue Polo Field. Tickets are $200 and $220 for women and men respectively. (TG)
