Super-rich party people say: Let’s go to Montenegro..Rothschilds Party Hard
Posted July 18, 2011on:
This week, it was Monte Carlo. Next week, Montenegro. Nat Rothschild, who has one of the best financial brains in a family renowned for business acumen, will be 40 next Tuesday, and intends to make this a weekend to remember.
The financier is rumoured to be splashing out £1m on a birthday bash. That is small change for a man whose personal wealth is reckoned to be about a thousand times that amount. And the little state of Montenegro is understandably delighted to be chosen as the venue.
Montenegro is a staggeringly beautiful, mountain statelet onn the c oast of the Adriatic, only just more than half the size of Wales with a population of 660,000, slightly more than that of Glasgow. It has been an independent state only since 2006, when its people voted in a referendum to sever their union with Serbia. It is probably best known to the British public as the supposed setting of the film Casino Royale, though most of it was actually shot in the Czech Republic.
Uniquely for a sovereign state, Montenegro has no currency. All transactions are conducted in euros though it is not in the EU or the eurozone. This peculiarity has made it a magnet for Russian oligarchs, and for people who want to disguise the source of their wealth, such as Irish drug barons.

Guests at the party – who were entertained until 4am by DJs flown in from the UK – drank Bellini champagne cocktails and enjoyed dinner at tables set out on each side of the vast pool.
The menu included a ham, figs and olive starter and barbecued Adriatic fish, followed by fruit panna cotta with wild berries – all teamed with £100 bottles of Bordeaux wine.
Lord Mandelson is believed to have stayed at the Aman Hotel on a private island at nearby Sveti Stefan. The hotel charges up to £2,600 per suite.
Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska arrived at the festivities on his £70 million yacht the Queen K, in an echo of the most infamous meeting between Mandelson and investment banker Nat Rothschild.
Three years ago, Lord Mandelson attended a party hosted by Mr Rothschild on Mr Deripaska’s yacht on the Greek island of Corfu. During the trip he allegedly ‘dripped pure poison’ about then Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
The source of the leak was believed to have been the then shadow chancellor George Osborne. The Chancellor was not invited to this weekend’s celebrations, according to sources close to the Rothschilds.
