THE LUXE LIFE
Event Review: Altaneve hosts Ice Skating at Brookfield Place



Dressed in their very best, made their way to Brookfield Place on Tuesday evening to celebrate with Altaneve Prosecco, as they hosted a black tie affair-- complete with delightful drinks and ice skating. Brookfield Place is still in the midst of heavy construction, and the bulk of the building will only open as of Spring 2015. On the night of the event, one could walk through gaping expanses of marble and glass and without seeing another person. The quiet corner of Manhattan and early darkness of winter evening completed the feeling that one was creeping illicitly through the halls of a luxurious office building, closed up for the night.
