A great way to end the year

A great way to end the year

It was an exciting night of music, dance, free-flowing alcohol and tasty food at The Lalit Ashok, which hosted a party on New Year’s Eve. Spread across various locations in the hotel, close to 2500 Bangaloreans were in for a treat. With packages for couples, stags and children starting at Rs 3000, nobody went home without a smile on their face.

‘Rhythm Rendezvous 2014’ at ‘Kalinga’ saw both families and couples dancing to the tunes of the City’s Bollywood baadshah DJ Mohasin and DJ Sanjay Datta, popularly known as the godfather of house music.

The spacious hall was packed with people shaking a leg to item numbers, commercial house music and classics. Hindi remixes of yesteryear Bollywood numbers were also quite a big hit with the crowd. Meanwhile, other guests of the hotel enjoyed the beats of DJ Nash and Ash at the ‘Splurge 2014’ party at Oko and DJ Ryan Beck’s energetic set at ‘The Last Party’ at ‘Sutra’.

“Choosing to party here is the best choice I’ve made in 2013. On the last day of this great year, I’m just glad that I’m with my loved ones.

We’re having a lovely time,” said Shashi, who attended the party.

For couples who wanted to bring in the New Year with their children, a special section was dedicated to kids at ‘Siddhartha’. Another point worth noting was the glamour side to the party. Not only were the men and women wearing their suits and little black dresses, the little ones too had a gala time in their Sunday best!

Meenakshi, a 12-year-old, said that she and her mother decided to wear the same outfit for the party. “When my mother went shopping to buy her dress, I went along with her. We ended up liking the same dress in different sizes!” she says, adding, “A lot of my parents’ friends have brought their kids along. So it’s a fun night for all of us.”

Complementing the music and alcohol was an elaborate buffet served by the poolside. “Everything is special tonight, especially the choice of meats that we are offering. We have rabbit, quail, emu and turkey in unique preparations. We also have live counters and cuisines like Thai, Mongolian, Indian and Japanese,” informed chef Subodh Goyal.
And then there were the cocktails which were the highlight of the party. From colourful shooters to drinks with flames, it was a night worth remembering for all those who attended.

“My New Year resolution is to drink and party less. But I’m going to start that only after 2014 arrives. There is no better way to bring in the New Year than to be here, enjoying the vibe of Bangalore,” said Monica, an expatriate from USA.
