When you think of Christmas, a party often comes to mind. Hey, it also gives us a legit reason to unwind and catch up with the homies before the year ends. Such social gatherings are intimate and exclusive (boo you, nobody should be left out). Motivated by the spirit of Christmas, we've gone all out and hosted the IMV Christmas Party with our publishing brethren, Buro 24/7 Singapore and Robb Report Singapore, at the swanky Bar Rouge.

Perched on the 72nd floor of Swissôtel The Stamford, the newly-opened lounge was the perfect venue (the Shanghai flagship is reputed to be the club of choice for China's glitterati) for our guests to take a breather and marvel at the stunning civic district view (An excellent conversation starter - "Oh, my office is THERE.").

One might expect Christmas food staples like roast turkey, log cake, and eggnog at the party. Instead, Asian-inspired flavours like crispy mantou dipped in chilli crab sauce and zesty yuzu pop replaced the usual suspects. Drinks-wise, each publication from the IMV media family was represented by a cocktail created exclusively for the party too.

No yuletide party is complete without gifts and presents, so we held a special lucky draw that comprises of a rare 30-year-old single cask Caol Ila Scotch Whisky from B28 Whisky Fund and a return ticket for two to Vienna from Thai Airways. #noreindeersandsleighsinvolved

Friends of Esky and a handful of lucky guests were also presented with the IMV Christmas Gift Box that's loaded with goodies to survive the festive season — from Banyan Tree spa essentials, Venchi chocolates, Rémy Champagne Cognac, Kiehl’s facial combo, Freia scalp care shampoo, Kusmi tea, a Pineider leather stationery set, and many more. Nobody leaves empty-handed as everyone gets Buro's brand new card game, Double Tap, that breaks the ice and encourages a meaningful conversation.

The party may be over, but carry on the smiles and laughter into the new year and we hope you'll keep your Santa hat throughout Twelvetide.

Bar Rouge is located at The Swissôtel The Stamford level 71 and 72, 2 Stamford Road. For reservations and more information, call 9177 7307.
