Recently, Atlanta R&B singer Monica and lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns hosted the first stop for the Grey Goose “Hotel Noir” national tour. “Hotel Noir” is the formal launch for Cherry Noir, the first new Grey Goose flavored vodka since 2009. The spectacular event was held at the plush W Hotel Buckhead, a place where Atlanta’s urban sophisticates congregate regularly.
Monica hosted “Hotel Noir” in conjunction with the release of her latest CD that’s getting all the buzz, New Life. As usual, Kenny Burns came with his distinguished swag and the party was on. The bartenders poured three Grey Goose Cherry Noir featured cocktails all night long — the Cherry Moon, the Midnight Martinez and the Cherry Collins. The drinks, the ambiance and the venue, had guests imagining the days of prohibition when this event would have been comparable to a night at the most palatial speakeasy in town. That’s the “Hotel Noir” experience in a nutshell. If you received the invitation and didn’t RSVP, or you missed it — shame on you. It was a hot affair with sexy R&B singer Monica, DJ Baby Yu on the ones and twos and free signature Grey Goose cocktails flowing all night. There is no better way to kick off a weekend. –al weems
