Private Cellar at Club 21 by Belmond

Private Cellar at Club 21 by Belmond  |  New York, United States  |  I am lucky enough to have enjoy great dinner, cocktails and evenings at Club 21 in New York City. Either having a wonderful meal at the main room, of a glass of champagne next to the fire place during cold winters over lovely conversations. But today, for the first time, following the speakeasy legendary Prohibition-era, I join a very private group of New York leading travel agents, at the wine cellar.
Just walk through the main room, by the iconic Club 21 kitchen, and down to the cellar, to find private stocks of wine bottles under names like Nixon or  Elizabeth Taylor, regulars of Club 21.
The special occasion, the official introduction to Belmond newest property, to open soon in Santa Barbara, California (March 18th. 2013), named El Encanto. This iconic hotel is being meticulously restored to capture all the original romance and glamour that endeared it to both the Santa Barbara community and vacationers in search of seclusion and charm. Ninety-two California-style bungalows dot the lush, landscaped gardens with sweeping views of Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean. Original architectural features are being lovingly brought back to life, while modern additions include an expansive outdoor swimming pool and beautiful boutique spa. (www.elencanto.com).
We shared a lovely dinner with the management of the soon to open El Encanto, and the Belmond Regional Managing Director for the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. In such a stunning room. Low lights, vaulted walls covered with ancient wine bottles, guarded by our for private waiters.Such an unique experience, to perfectly match what El Encanto promises to offer to their guests from next March 2013 on, with the sophistication and detail that Belmond knows how to do. So stay tuned for more, cannot wait to come an visit, and I have got my invitation already YAYYYY.!!! Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
