Street lights and Gondolas, rich gold drapes and chandeliers dripping in crystals set the scene as Nymphs and Nereids dance the night away under the columns and street lights of the Piazza San Marco.
This year we invite you to step inside Masquerade, our extravagant festive ball where you will be caught up in a whirl of decadence, danger and delight.
Feast all your senses on our dazzling recreation of the Venetian carnival; a towering Christmas tree twinkles and sends a soft glow over the milling guests, whilst a mask seller weaves through the crowd offering anonymity to merchants and aristocracy alike.
A stunning Venetian room complete with two metre high glittering masks greets you, enjoy a Bellini at ‘Harrys bar’ at the base of a sweeping staircase where cool and sophisticated masked entertainers perform, enjoy a beautiful canapé as you stare with wondrous awe at the flown gondolas, tumbling with crimson roses as they are lit by the night sky.
With a theatrical flourish a set of impressive velvet drapes open slowly to reveal the Palazzo Ballroom and you are invited to take your seats for dinner.
Crystal chandeliers, candlelit tables and giant ornate golden mirrors adorn the dining room. Piece after piece of stunning entertainment punctuate each course of dinner and build to the exquisite finale.
Soon, it’s time to hit the dance floor as the DJ gets guests to their feet to dance the night away, or choose to return to the bar area which has been transformed to a vibrant carnival atmosphere with Dodgem cars and waltzer.
