To welcome the holiday season, The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa in Denver hosted its 32nd Annual Champagne Cascade on Nov. 24. The champagne cascade is a two-story pyramid made up of 6,000 glasses. Using a napoleonic saber, a master swordsman severs open bottles of Moet and Chandon to pour into the uppermost glass of the pyramid to create a cascading waterfall of Champagne that is then distributed into the rest of the glasses below. The cost of attendance varied from $25 for adult general admission and $20 for children. For a VIP viewing experience, individuals could purchase tickets for $175.

A champagne dinner was held the evening before for a total of 32 guests, no doubt to symbolize the 32nd year of the elegant event. Guests were served a four-course meal from a five-star menu prepared by Executive Chef, Rodney Herwerth. Meals were of course paired with champagne, Dom Perignon, Moet and white glove service. For an all-inclusive experience, tickets were sold at $275 each.

Along with the awe-inspiring champagne cascade and dinner a handful of other seasonal festivities were made available, including a guest appearance by Santa Clause himself, accompanied by the “Grand Dame” of Denver, a dazzling display of Christmas trees and twinkling lights that sets the scene for a wintery wonderland.

A portion of the proceeds from this event were donated to the non-profit, Make-A-Wish Colorado, an organization dedicated to granting children who suffer from critical illness life-changing wishes. The organization has granted more than 5,000 wishes to children across Colorado, and this year The Brown Palace Hotel graciously donated $10,000 to the cause.

“The Cascade is a Denver mainstay and one of The Brown’s most time-honored traditions. There truly is no better way to begin the holiday season then with a glass of Champagne, Santa and the most dazzling holiday decor in the area. This is the first year The Brown has hosted a dinner the night prior to the Cascade though we're sure this will become a tradition of elegance to go hand-in-hand with the Champagne Cascade itself,” says Tim Wolfe, general manager of the Brown Palace Hotel & Spa.

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino is completing the second phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, resulting in new guest rooms, an adults-only pool and private outdoor event space.

Formerly known as the Blackstone Hotel, the property will reopen as the Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel in spring 2020. Located in the Blackstone District, the oldest neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska, the lively area is home to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and nightlife. Its new name, Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel pays tribute to the original Blackstone Hotel’s Cottonwood Room bar that housed a Cottonwood tree growing from the center of the circular bar.
