Aria’s interlude – 24.09.2003
Prague has a new upscale hotel in Malá Strana – Aria Hotel. The hotel’s motif is based on music, so music was also the theme of the launch reception. The event hosted many celebrities, and food was prepared by the team of Nils Jebens, who operates the hotel restaurant Coda.
