Per Marriott,

Honoring St. Regis Hotels & Resorts’ long-standing tradition of sabrage, the brand is delighted to announce the launch of private champagne sabrage masterclasses at all properties across North America. Launching this summer, guests and locals alike will have the opportunity to book a private champagne sabering masterclass led by an expertly trained St. Regis Butler.

The art of sabrage has an illustrious history that stretches back more than 200 years. For St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, the ritual dates back to 1904 when hotel founder John Jacob Astor IV would nightly have 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 notably said, “Champagne: in victory, one deserves it; in defeat, one needs it.” Today, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts around the world continue the tradition with a nightly and celebratory sabering rituals performed regularly across the global portfolio.

The masterclass will be 30-minutes and includes a bottle of champagne, and canapés with additional add-ons that vary property to property. Pricing isn’t available yet and those interested should reach out directly to the properties.
