Making your Celebration simpler: Christmas & New Year’s in Jaipur

New-Year-2014

As 2013 nears its close and as we head close to the last week, and indeed the most happening and most celebrated one, of December and this year, the excitement is palpable. Everybody we know is busy making plans and hunting the best party destination in the Pink City. We thought we could help and make your search a little simpler.

Christmas Celebrations 2013

For starters you must know that every hang-out, hotel and restaurant has something planned for Christmas and New Year’s. There is a Christmas carnival and bash and un-ending number of events planned for kids, families, singles and couples at The Fern Hotel, on December 24th, December 25th in the morning and in the afternoon. There will be Christmas carols, candy floss, face painters, a gala Christmas-special buffet dinner and lunch and much more! It is going to be thrilling for your kids, nieces or nephews as well; they are going to love you for it! Oh, and they have a Christmas special Turkey Station on the Christmas eve; now that’s something new 🙂

Christmas-180x300The Hotel Park Inn in Bani Park has organised a rooftop Christmas-theme party for the Christmas eve, December 24th, in the late evening. It is strictly for couples; now that seems interesting 😉 A celebrity DJ of the town would be playing foot-tapping music, not to mention the unlimited drinks and a delectable dinner.

As the New Year comes close are we all not looking back at the year and rating it in our head? The Facebook yearbook that features your highlights of the ending year, which you updated about, sums it perfectly. Anyhow, arrive the New Year’s evening and we are all set for the last and definitely not the least happening event of the year. If a classic pre-planned party is your idea, then The Lalit has two great parties to offer, for two very different kinds of audiences! The one at their Central Courtyard is all about soothing ghazals and stirring Qawwalis this New Year’s Eve with the performances by Nizami Bandhu who take you into the beautiful tradition of Sufism. The other one is of course where you have to buckle up your party shoes with DJ Kartech playing Bollywood and pop tracks. Teenagers, young adults or adults, if your idea of welcoming New Year’s is in a big group of friends and if something less expensive would be something more suitable 😉 then we have good ideas for you too.

Forresta

You could guzzle up the drinks and devour the gourmet food amidst a romantic and welcoming ambiance at The Forresta Kitchen & Bar. Here you pay for what you order; nothing more and nothing less!

Alsisar HAveli jb

For some New Year’s has appeal when you are away from most of the city and its hustle-bustle. If that’s so, we would strongly recommend the heritage Alsisar Hotel on the Sansar Chand road in Jaipur. One of the up-town royal places, where you would find a selective few of the city. The good part of all these places is the chance to over-stay and it would always be welcome 😉 What we mean is that one could book suites for the night if they choose.

Before we wish you a happy week, here are a few smart things we want you to know and keep in mind! One, there are some interesting online shopping sites like Groupon that have awesome discounts and party deals on offer, to some of the posh places of Jaipur! Two, prepare for you and your friends’/family’s safety well in advance. When you are going to drive back home, let your sober friend drive. If it is an all girls’ gang you are in, arrange for a chauffeur or book yourselves a cab for the late night. It might sound very banal right now, but it would do you a lot of good to be cautious. Only if we could prove it with statistics!

Have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year’s Jaipur! We want you to bid farewell to the ending year singing and dancing, make resolutions for the coming one and tell us all the New Year gossip of the Pink City!!
