Music and dancing on the world-famous Croisette in Cannes… We can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year than on the French Riviera. The Hotel Martinez- a favorite crash pad for Hollywood stars during the annual film festival-- has organized a lively soirée sure to have you kicking off your stilettos to groove on the dance floor. They’ve invited Barry White to perform in the Salon Royal Galuchat! Accompanied by his orchestra, he’ll be performing the top hits from the 60’s & 70’s by Nat King Cole, En Vogue, Family Stand, The Temptations, The O’Jays and, of course, The Platters, with whom he sang for more than 20 years. He’ll also cover a more recent range of pop music.
New Year’s Eve at the Martinez also involves a culinary show. Star chef Christian Sinicropi is putting on a gala feast with refined culinary delicacies prepared with the noblest French ingredients. The starters alone sound mouthwatering: Profiteroles stuffed with an artichoke mousse, seasoned with splits of black truffle; Lollipops of smoked salmon and jelly of combawa; Lollipops of Parma ham and preserved duck foie gras. This NYE party costs 495 EUR per person and includes: the Gala dinner with Champagne, wine and mineral water, the concert-show, dancing, DJ. Stay at the Martinez from 150 euros/night on December 31, 2011 for two people in a Superior Category room, breakfasts included.
