Party fever at Grand Casino Beograd

Party fever reigned at Grand Casino Beograd from 8-9 February 2008 as guests gathered for a gala weekend of events to celebrate South East Europe’s newest and most stylish casino and entertainment complex.

Belgrade, 12.02.2008 – There was a real party atmosphere in the Serbian capital last weekend as guests flocked to Grand Casino Beograd for a two-day gala extravaganza at Casinos Austria International’s newest casino and entertainment venue.

Following a packed Press Conference on Friday evening in the Parada function room, 1,150 invited guests were treated to one of the best parties ever to be held in Belgrade. The festivities began with a spectacular dance and acrobatic performance to introduce the event’s „Colors of the Night“ theme: red for passion, blue for the sky, green for fun, food and feast, black for the night and gold for fortune.

Guests were welcomed by representatives of the Grand Casino Beograd partners, who ceremoniously cut the red ribbon, before moving in procession with the performers to the Roulette tables, where they each spun a Golden Roulette Ball to mark the official launch of Belgrade’s casino. The „winnings“ (over 1 million Dinar) were donated to a local charity.

A live DJ and dance party in Parada and superb performances by star guest Severina and Serbian jazz and folk band, Gyass, rounded off Friday night’s fantastic entertainment.

And there was more still to come. Saturday night saw Grand Casino Beograd host a second spectacular party for the general public. Word had definitely spread, and around 1,800 happy guests filled the casino and Parada for a second night of partying, fun and another rousing performance by Severina.

All catering was provided by the venue’s three restaurants, offering guests a fabulous taste of what they each have to offer: gourmet international cuisine from the exclusive Diva, spectacular Asian creations from the buffet-style Ginger and French and Italian delicacies from Chameleon. The excellent service and high quality, variety and presentation of the food met with resounding approval. The restaurants are now open for business and are already creating a stir on the Belgrade dining scene.

Completed in a record time of just one year, Belgrade’s casino enjoys an enviable location on the Danube Promenade. The new complex provides an unmatched selection of gaming, dining, entertainment and event facilities. In addition to state-of-the-art gaming at 25 tables and 222 of the latest slot machines, Grand Casino Beograd also features a VIP gaming area for high rollers, three top class restaurants, an elegant Piano Bar, a stylish Roulette Bar Lounge and Terrace, the multifunctional Parada event room and a Vicky M store, Serbia’s only outlet for Michalis Jewelry’s fine new line for the young and fashionable, offering a range of designer jewelry and Valentino accessories.
