Celebs Hit Up St. Barts for the Holidays


The stars are out in force in the Caribbean, especially on St. Barts. “People are still drinking magnums of Domaines Ott and spending 500 euros for lunch,” the New York Post’s spy on the former French West Indies island colony reports. “Nikki Beach Club, Isle de France and Taiwana are the hot lunch spots. Larry Gagosian had a party that included 007 Daniel Craig.” Craig and his girlfriend, American film producer Satsuki Mitchell, have been seen spending time on both Petit Cul de Sac and Grande Saline beach with friends. Also relaxing seaside are Beyonce and Jay-Z, Eddie Murphy, Giorgio Armani, Jon Bon Jovi, Russell Simmons, Stephen Dorff, Tony Shafrazi, Roger Waters, Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymour. “David Letterman was spotted grocery shopping, but has avoided the clubs and restaurants. At night, everyone is at the Strand, Casa Nikki or the Yacht Club. The harbor is filled with yachts, including Ultima III, Ronald Perelman’s 188-footer, and The Octopus, Paul Allen’s 414-foot ship, where rival New Year’s Eve bashes are to be held. Perelman’s is more exclusive, but Allen’s party draws the most interesting young women.” St. Barts is an extremely popular holiday spot for stars, celebs and bigwigs, as it’s relatively quiet and offers great properties as well as beautiful weather.
