We are delighted to bring the art of sabrage front and center for both guests and visitors this summer at our hotels and resorts. There is no more glamorous way to celebrate a soiree, toast to a milestone, or bond with friends than sabering a bottle of champage. We look forward to raising a glass to the time-honored tradition of sabrage with a new era of St. Regis guests. – George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts
The St. Regis Sabrage Masterclasses can be tailored to a variety of group sizes and are available to both hotel guests and locals. The classes will let each participant discover the history and technique before allowing them to try their hand at the cherished St. Regis ritual.
The art of sabrage dates back more than 200 years. In 1904, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts’ founder John Jacob Astor IV nightly had a bottle sabered on-property to celebrate the transition from day to night. Astor was inspired by the glamour of sabrage, an act which had been made famous by Napoleon Bonaparte, who opened champagne with his saber and said, “Champagne: in victory, one deserves it; in defeat, one needs it.” St. Regis Hotels & Resorts’ properties around the world continue the tradition with nightly and celebratory sabering rituals performed regularly across the global portfolio.
For those looking to take the art of sabrage home with them, The St. Regis Atlanta, The St. Regis Aspen Resort, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, The St. Regis Deer Valley, The St. Regis New York, The St. Regis San Francisco, The St. Regis Toronto, and The St. Regis Washington D.C. will offer private sabrage masterclasses upon request. Available for groups of up to four people, the experience will include a 30-minute masterclass, a bottle of champagne, and canapés with additional add-ons that vary from property to property.
