The Telegraph CC&FC Xmas Eve Was An ‘Absolut’ Success!

Mood & music: Gary Lawyer kicked off the evening with Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline and New York New York. His set list included a lot of Elvis Presley classics including All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes, Jailhouse Rock and Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, which drew the members to the dance floor. Queen classics Crazy Little Thing Called Love and I Want To Break Free also drew the cheers. The wintry chill ensured that people either warmed up on the dance floor or by the bonfires dotting the grounds. Later when DJ Vicky hit the console with Chinta ta ta from Rowdy Rathore and Fevicol se from Dabangg 2, the members got grooving some more. The crowd swelled past 1,800, a “record number” for Christmas Eve at CC&FC.

She was wearing: Some braved the winter chill in strapless dresses and short skirts. Others layered up with stockings, boots and jackets or knitwear, causing much heartache to the boys. While Pamela Singh Bhutoria refused to let go of her black jacket that she wore over her tangerine bodycon, Madhu Singh layered up in stockings and a three- quarter sleeve dress. Pallavi Chatterjee was in Christmas gear in metallic leggings, knee-high leather boots and a red tunic with woollens. “I do hope it isn’t this cold on New Year’s Eve. It’s so hard to dress up!” smiled Nisha Agarwal who was partying with her pals at the club.

He was wearing: The men happily layered up fully in jackets and trousers, scarves and caps though some preferred to brave the cold in just a single layer of knitwear.

Brightest star: The original Little Master, Sunil Manohar Gavaskar, in a sleeveless sweater over a full-sleeve T-shirt, and a benign smile.

Food & beverage: Arsalan’s kebabs and biryani were the pop picks with lots of liquor through the evening. The Gupta Brothers’ stall with all kinds of vegetarian goodies was a big hit as well, especially the mini samosas and pastas. Red wine and whisky were the pop picks in alcohol.

Clubspeak: “It was a magical ambience with bonfires and special lighting. We were happy that so many people chose to bring in Christmas with us at CC&FC,” said club CEO Deepankar Nandi.
