The Shakes, a live party band, provided the bottom floor’s evening entertainment. Chef Niko Romito created a special menu of small snacks, which included the Vitello Tonnato, Pappa al Pomodoro, and Tortelli with scampi and tarragon.
Visitors also got private tours of a number of the hotel’s prominent locations, including as the lavish 300 sq m Bulgari Suite, the exquisite Spa, the renowned Bulgari Bar and La Terrazza, which offers panoramic city views from its seventh level.
