Feb. 8, 2019 - PRLog -- Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest introduces a new tradition, the celebration of the fall of day, at The Living Room, starting 4 February 2019. Following the hustle and bustle of daytime, we will switch on an altogether different buzz at The Living Room: we'll start the fireplace, turn down the lights, light candles, and at 18:00, we'll celebrate the passage of time by cracking open a bottle by sabrage and tasting champagne.

Every family observes some sort of rituals that reinforce a sense of belonging. IGNITE THE NIGHT is our way of creating the kind of cosy intimacy that our guests will appreciate and remember. This daily ritual will separate the active day and transition our guests to a relaxing evening time.

"Champagne! In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it." Napoleon Bonaparte

Drinking champagne is a ritual. Our IGNITE THE NIGHT partner is Bor és Más, the distributor of Premium Taittinger champagne. They will serve three varieties at The Living Room: Taittinger Brut Reserve, Taittinger Prestige Rosé and the limited vintage edition Taittinger Les Folies de la Marquetterie.

The first bottle will be opened using the virtuoso sabrage technique and shared with the guests at The Living Room.

Opening the bottle by sabrage caught on at the beginning of the 19th century at the time of the Napoleonic wars, in the circles of French light infantry. Sabrage suggests strength and nobility. Legend has it that Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, who was named Veuve Clicquot, took over the business after her husband's death. Napoleon's soldiers wanted to impress the young widow by performing sabrage, but they also celebrated their war victories with this opening technique.

The IGNITE THE NIGHT ceremony will take place at The Living Room every evening at 18:00, starting 4 February 2019.

To quote another French classic, the fox in "The Little Prince", we hope that, like us, our guests will also adorn their heart in expectation and look forward to this evening ritual.

"It would have been better if you'd come back at the same hour," said the fox. "If, for example, you come at four o'clock in the afternoon, then at three o'clock I would start feeling happy. As the minutes pass, I feel happier and happier. At four o'clock, I'm already full of excitement and worry, and understand what treasure it is to be happy. But if you just show up any time, I will never know when to get my heart adorned and ready to see you… You must observe the right rituals…" Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: "The Little Prince"
