The Rembrandt Hotel Bangkok will host a black tie Gala Dinner of Confrrie du Sabre, Where Sword Meets Bottle on Tuesday, 1 April 2014, at 7:00pm.

The art of Sabrage, an act which became popular in Napoleonic times, is the technique of severing the top off a Champagne bottle with a swords blade.

The saber is slid along the body of the bottle to break the entire neck away from the bottle. The blunt side of the sword is used to separate the collar from the neck of the bottle, and an experienced sommelier can open the bottle with little loss of Champagne.

The special evening at the Rembrandt Hotel will begin with the traditional Sabrage ceremony conducted by Jean-Claude Jalloux, the founder of la Confrrie du Sabre dOr at the lobby, and will be followed with a Gala Dinner at Da Vinci restaurant, the fine dining restaurant on the hotel's 4th floor.

A sumptuous five-course menu awaits, with highlights such as Smoked Oyster, Foie-gras, Tiger Prawn, Suckling Pig and Caviar paired with signature Champagnes from G.H. Mumm and wines from Vinum Lector.

The price for the dinner it THB 3,600 net per person, and THB 5,700 net per person if you also wish to try Sabrage on a bottle of Champagne yourself.

Availability is limited, so advanced reservations are highly recommended.
