The #100doCopa celebrations kicked off on New Year’s Eve with a legendary “White & Gold” party. This year’s theme honoured the Brazilian custom of wearing white at the turn of the year to bring good fortune, whilst gold is a nod to the pioneering party spirit of Copa.
One of the most celebrated décor artists in the city, Patrícia Vaks, adorned the landmark hotel’s fabulous halls and pool area with seasonal flowers and a light show of colours. Local bands, Jazz com Bossa and Studio Pop played in the Golden Room, followed by a line-up of up-and-coming DJs, including Ronnie Borges, Vincent Chicha and Marisa D’Amato. At midnight, the hotel’s terraces welcomed guests to catch the glittering view of the fireworks.
