The Most Decadent Private Parties of St-Tropez

The Parties of St-Tropez France

Friday afternoon we traveled from Monaco to St-Tropez France for the Eyes Wide Shut Party we were invited to. Life in St-Tropez is glamorous but surreal. The party was in a villa of a prominent French wealthy man.

All the guests were fully dressed, many wore masks. There were many prominent guests at the event, tech billionaires, private equity moguls etc. Some of the richest people in the World participated in the event. The waiters and the entertainers were mostly topless.

It was a very beautifully designed party with some wonderful performances. The party was around a swimming pool of a beautiful villa. By the swimming pool  two naked lesbian girls were giving each other pleasure in a bathtub. I happened to sit next to a plastic surgeon who analyzed the bob-job of each girl. I thought it was very funny. Occupational hazard – I thought. The party was decadent. We left with a couple of guys and went to the night club the Caves afterwards. The guys were buying Cristal. One of the guys (a well-known tech billionaire) asked me to go up to his suite at the Byblos Hotel to do drugs with him and his two girls. I told him I was not into drugs. He said I was boring and walked away.

After this party, I spent the next three weeks in St-Tropez and every night we were at a different villa party or yacht party. A couple of days after the decadent Eyes Wide Shot party, we were invited to a White Party in a villa, where the Gypsy Kings were playing. The Gypsy Kings put up a good performance, however everyone was very unhappy at the party because there was no food. Apparently the chef quit just a few hours before the party started. So they were trying to cook something up very quickly, but the guests were not happy.

The best party of the week was Dennis Rich’s Circus themed party on the port. Many prominent guests showed up again such as Jerry Hall, Ivana Trump and many others. The party was amazing. There were dancers dressed up as circus entertainers. Some entertainers were playing with fire.

The party was absolutely superb. The food they served was high quality street food, like you would get if you were going to the circus. This party was absolutely the best party of July in St-Tropez. Dennis Rich always throws the best parties in town.

We usually spent our days having lunch at Club 55. There is no better place if you want to see celebrities than that place. We saw Uma Thurman with her baby, Roberto Cavalli.

The best surprise was when we ran into Woody Allen.

He certainly loved the attention he was getting from girls. He was with his Asian daughter/wife. Bardot Beach and Bagatelle were other popular places to have lunch at.

My favorite was Bardot Beach, because everything was pink and each table had a big buquet of pink roses.

After lunch, we usually headed over to Nikki Beach to party. On Sundays, the place was usually very busy. People were usually buying up champagne like crazy and spraying it on each other. By the end of the day everything was covered with bottles. The best party at Nikki Beach took place on Bastille Day, when entertainers were dressed up in funky costumes to create an amazing atmosphere.

One of the best parties of St-Tropez, was at the Villa Octupussy in a 50 million euro villa in the Parc de St-Tropez.

The rumor was that the owner was trying to sell the villa, therefore he threw an amazing party to show everyone what an amazing place he had for sale. The villa had a private port and a helicopter deck. Everything inside was white. It was one of the most beautiful villas I have ever seen. The food and the drinks were amazing too. They would serve salmon and caviar, as well as risotto with truffles. The champagne was flowing all night.

 Carol Asher’s pink party in her villa was also amazing. Everything inside of her house was pink. The party was in the garden around the pool. There was a band and the party was rocking until late at night. It was a super elegant party. The villa was very beautiful inside.

Another one of my favorite parties were the Byblos Party.

Every year the hotel celebrates its birthday by inviting a famous singer and giving a big party on the terrace of the Byblos Hotel. The terrace was all lit up in funky colors. It was a great night. They even had a concert. Later, my friend arrived for a weekend and we stayed at the Hotel des Paris for a few days. The rooftop of the hotel was amazing. The view from up there was superb. The rooms were colorful with bright funky colors. While Hotel de Paris in Monaco is old and traditional, this hotel was the opposite. It is young, modern and colorful with beautiful art works everywhere in the lobby. We also attended Amir’s Famous BBQ Party that took place in the spectacular villa of Michael Saylor in the Parc de St-Tropez. The best thing about the villa was an infinity pool.
