Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow presents: "Masters of Magic" as a scenario of the New Year’s Eve Celebration 2018

The festive New Year’s Eve, the battle of the chiming clock in the Spassky Tower, the enchanting atmosphere, the picturesque salute above Red Square, camera flashes, magical images and exquisite treats will be part of the New Year 2018 "Masters of Magic" scenario, whose participants, thanks to the plan of Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow, will feel like heroes of a fairy-tale.

You can make the most cherished wishes near the magic Christmas tree in the hotel’s lobby: it is decorated with handmade toys created in partnership with the Life Line charity foundation. Each of them reflects one of the world-famous symbols of Russia or recalls nostalgic memories of past-century toys. Your favourite toys can be purchased at the gift shop in the hotel’s lobby for a charitable donation.

To start the pre-New Year season, Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow offers a series of Sunday family brunches, a landmark tradition of the hotel, already in December. The main attributes of the festive meal are the royal buffet at the Baltschug Grill restaurant, more than 100 menu items, Ruinart French champagne and other free-flowing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, live music, and the breathtaking winter panorama of the Kremlin outside the window. For the youngest guests during the brunch, there is a children’s room with a set of treats and entertainments for every taste and age. Winter brunches will be held on 10, 17 and 24 December from 12:30 to 16:30.

Any preparations for the New Year’s Eve can be pleasant and joyful. The beauty centre Baltschug will help ladies to create an impeccable image: an ideal styling and festive make-up. The Truefitt&Hill barbershop is located in the hotel and offers royal shaving, a manicure and haircuts for men. Among the famous customers of the privileged brand of the British royal court with more than 200 years of history are Frank Sinatra, Winston Churchill, Charles Dickens, John Wayne, diplomats and politicians.

For the celebration of New Year’s Eve 2018, Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow offers several magic options. The most fabulous scenario of the celebration will be a party in the Library room with a view of the Kremlin: here on the open terrace with a glass of champagne you can live the countdown on the main chiming clock of the country, admire the panorama of Red Square and take the most memorable shots with a view of the fireworks! Guests of the Baltschug can also choose a New Year’s feast in the Baltschug Grill restaurant or Café Kranzler, an exquisite New Year’s Eve dinner in the banquet rooms with views of the Kremlin, a leisurely dinner in the cosy Lobby Lounge bar before a walk through Red Square, or a bright children’s New Year with a round dance around the festive Christmas tree and a magical show, treats and gifts for young guests! An unchanging accompaniment to all celebrations is an exquisite festive menu from Executive Chef Maxim Maksakov, Ruinart sparkling French champagne and dances all night! For those who prefer privacy and true home comfort, it is possible to order a special festive set menu in the room or suite, designed for two or more guests.

On 1 January 2018, guests of the hotel can have an unforgettable New Year’s "Kremlin" breakfast with prosecco from 9:00 to 13:00. The winter panorama of the Kremlin outside the window will create a New Year’s mood for whole families from small to large.

The abundant programme of the holiday deserves a generous gift, which Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow has prepared for the guests!
