The Year of the Lord is coming to a close and it’s time to let your hair down and hit the party circuit hard. While some have a taken a leaf from the movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ to move down to a tourist spot, to ring-in the New Year, ot
hers seem to have a settled down for a bash with family and friends in one of the top hotels in the city. To give a fillip to the party mood, the hotels have also lined up exciting shows to give a fitting finale to the year-2007.

“The December 31 party is the mother of all parties. Year-long we have some parties or the other but this is the grandest of all, and there is no compromise,” says the Food and Beverages Manager of Taj Residency, Rajesh Chakraborty.

To light up the mood, the hotels have plans to spread lavish buffets, serve the choicest of beverages and pack the shows with sizzling item numbers. Let’s see what’s in store from the Hotels: The Park is bringing an international artist to enthuse the revellers. The hotel is flying in Spanish oriental dancer, Morgana, to set the stage ablaze. Amlan Dasgupta of The Park describes the show as ‘Intimate, sensual and pulsating’.

Apart from the oriental dancer, a dance troupe comprising ramp models from Mumbai and Kolkata will perform to the numbers belted out DJ Samy and Bollywood item girl Mamtaa Sharma promises to give sizzling performances. The show will be held on the Chess Board from 8 p.m. onwards and chef Srinath will be spreading an exotic buffet that would comprise a few turkey specials. The theme is titled as ‘Passion8’.

Hotel Grand Bay assures to be in tune with the present trend. Catching up with the latest Shahrukh Khan blockbuster ‘Om Shanti Om’, the hotel is gearing up to set the evening to the thematic 70s.

“Disco is the theme and we are calling it as ‘Dard-e disco’. Performers and a DJ from Kolkata will set the pace. The entire event is being organised by our event manager from Kolkata, Hints and Allegations,” informs the Executive Chef of the Hotel, Nambi Arooran.

He also pledges to arrange a sumptuous buffet with over 100 dishes and an exotic dessert spread. The event is going to be held on the front lawns and the hotel has launched a two-nights and three days package for the outstation revellers who stream down from places like Chattisgarh and Orissa.

A 38-member performing troupe comprising dancers, DJs and ramp models from Kolkata will be the main attraction at Hotel Dolphin. The hotel will be hosting the New Year bash across four venues within its premises: At it’s multi-cuisine restaurant- Horizon, Poolside, Garden (for stags) and the Front Lawns (only buffet spread).

The General Manager of the hotel Rajendra Prasad says that every person who buys the ticket will be eligible for the 2 nights and 3 days stay package in any of the select 80 hotels across 40 cities. “Moreover, we have a number of schemes like the Golden Key, where a couple can stay overnight and a plenty of gifts for the people,” he adds.

Hotel Green Park seems to anchor around the Bollywood theme and have aptly titled their show as ‘Bollywood Dreams’. To make it thematic, the hotel will be replicating a set that would look like a shooting arena in a studio.

“The theme hinges on retrospect effect. The dance troupe from Kolkata will be sequencing hits from the 1960s to the latest,” says the Resident Manager of the hotel, K.M. Rao.

This apart and the buffet spread the revellers are in for gifts galore. “The prizes include flat TVs, DVD players, microwave, gold rings and free stay packages at metro cities,” informs Rao.

The hotel also offers a ‘Golden Key’ package, wherein a couple could troop in on December 31, and checkout after a jumbo breakfast and sumptuous lunch on January 1.

Hotel Daspalla has roped in singers Suswati and Avishek to set the tempo for the New Year crowd at the hotel. Orchestra, dance performances and fireworks would add up to the show. Actress Soumya would pace the evening with her performances and anchoring.

So it’s time to keep aside the resolutions and party hard to usher in the New Year in style.
