Dario sets splendid scene for Conrad's fifth birthday

NOBODY enjoys throwing a party better than Dario Regazzoni, the tonsorially challenged supremo of the Conrad, who is one of the great characters around town.

So he was at his characteristically beaming best when he discharged rivers of champagne and hillocks of caviar to celebrate the fifth anniversary of his establishment at a well-attended bash in the ballroom.

Dario lays on all-Brazilian treat for Conrad celebration

TO the Conrad, where last night we joined 1,500 other ''close friends'' (as GM Dario Regazzoni addressed us in his invitation) for the Pacific Place hotel's third anniversary.

It was not a good night for the usual crowd of free-loaders that turn up. Strategically placed minders ensured that only the invited ''friends'' got in.

Dario dreams his way into fantasyland

CHATTING idly with veteran hotelier Dario Regazonni, I decided to take the conversation to a higher plane by asking the Conrad GM what would constitute the hotel of his dreams.

Good heavens, there was no stopping the man.

''My dream hotel is a stately home which employs no men,'' he launched.
