The holidays. A time for giving. A time for togetherness. A time to... rent out some extravagant place and
throw an over-the-top party in it. Below: five of those such places. Yeah, we thought you might like that.
You Require: Somewhere you can make a dramatic entrance. You’ll Receive: A 15th-floor penthouse with floor-to-ceiling windows... that’s attached
to a fire-pit-equipped outdoor patio... that’s all attached to a helipad. Get to the
THE EMERGENCY EXIT
You Require: Something within stone-throwing distance of a raw bar and a mini-golf
course. You’ll Receive: Exactly that. You’ll have total reign over the Optimist’s
curtain-enclosed area. And hey, feel free to slip out after a few toasts for some bivalves and putt-putt out
back. No one has to know.
THE MILKY WAY
The Star Gallery at Fernbank Museum
You Require: A prime spot for cocktailing under the stars. You’ll Receive: An oval room with a fiber-optic, constellation-filled ceiling. Some would
call it a planetarium. You’ll call it... a really good-looking place to drink eggnog.
THE DEN OF COCKTAILERY
You Require: Barkeeps who make a mean Old Fashioned. You’ll Receive: The entire low-lit restaurant to do what you want with. And you want a
room full of your tackiest-sweater-wearing comrades. They’ll clear out all the wooden tables, open up the
bar and start chiseling ice for sculptures. Kidding, it’s for your drinks.
THE BED ROOM
The Farmhouse at the Inn at Serenbe
You Require: An off-the-grid retreat with overnight potential. You’ll Receive: Dinner: consisting of wine flights, chocolate bourbon pecan pie and
whatever you want (the menu’s fully customizable). And accommodations: consisting of marshmallow roasting,
hayrides and a room at the Inn. So go ahead, have another slice of the bourbon pie.
