Weekend Getaway

A private charter to a city you may have known and love before, seen now through the eyes of the DreamMaker in a way you’ve never experienced. Go from outsider to insider in less time than it takes to step from the jet to your private limousine. And yes, while you may depart and return from your 3 night weekend as planned, your private jet is a true DreamMaker upgrade.

"In life, everything to excess! Of life, take large and luscious bites the better to enjoy its variety. Moderation is best left in the monasteries for monks; and specialization, ‘tis for the insects. Live well, good men. ‘Tis thy best revenge!”

Robert A. Heintein

Fancy sipping Pimms on the banks of the Thames with an Earlbefore being escorted into the House of Commons? You’ll see first-hand how much more entertaining British aristocracy and politics are than our tame American version.

You know Annabel’s, the Mayfair haunt so up-market it is the only club the Queen has ever visited, where Prince Andrew was turned away for not having a tie? Well bring cravat, because you’ll be going.

It goes without saying that you’ll have access to the best shows in the world, the greatest restaurants in the city, and a twist on high tea like you’ve never had before.

“The best bribe which London offers to-day to the imagination, is, that, in such a vast variety of people and conditions, once can believe there is room for persons of romantic character to exist, and that the poet, the mystic, and the hero may hope to confront their counterparts.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Paris is so much more than the City of Lights. With sensual pleasures of every variety, Paris is a city best explored with a mind open to chance, romance and magic opportunities. You’ll pass through immigration like a diplomat, see the private chambers of Marie Antoinette (you’ll be one of only 20 guests out of every two million visitors with special permission), visit the cloak-and-dagger lab of a major perfurmery, and perhaps lunch with a minister. The DreamMaker Parisian getaway is modern twist on a classic weekend

“We worship not the Graces, nor the Parcae, but Fashion. She spins and weaves and cuts with full authority. The head monkey at Paris puts on a traveller’s cap, and all the monkeys in America do the same.”

Henry David Thoreau

Imagine being whisked by helicopter from Roma Airport to a private helipad at the Vatican. Imagine being taken into the Papal Closet, to see how good you look in His Holiness’s robes under the watchful eyes of the Swiss Guard, of course. Next, you will arrive at the Sistine Chapel, where you and your family will be given private access to lay on your back and study the master’s work. Imagine dinner with the exiled Princess of Burma, who will help you prepare the most incredible Italian food you have ever experienced. Imagine the High Priest of Italian fashion sending for you in his private helicopter, and the matriarch of Gucci family herself outfitting your princess after lunch at her estate. What’s your unimaginably decadent Italian fantasy? Now let the DreamMaker make it real.

“Carving is easy, you just go down to the skin and stop.”

The French Laundry? Of course. But not by default or cancellation.  8 o’clock on Saturday? Absolutely. The rare wines? You don’t even have to ask. A meal with the owners in their private cellar? Naturally. You see, there are hard places to get in and there are impossible places. We like the impossible ones.

“Wine brings to light the hidden secrets of the soul, gives being to our hopes, bids the coward flight, drives dull care away, and teaches new means for the accomplishment of our wishes.”

Horace

Twinkle, twinkle, little star. I do not wonder what you are. You are Acapulco. Twinkling day and night, Acapulco is the hidden city of stars. Like a half remembered dream of the kind of hospitality that you thought was forgotten decades ago, Acapulco will envelop you with its quiet charms. From hydrating rose mists, to personal fashion shows by your rose scented pool to private tennis courts with attentive ball boys, you’ll half expect Cary Grant and Kate Hepburn to stop by for a Daiquiri.

“But on a warn Saturday night last December, nothing about Madeiras suggested that Acalpulco remains unchanged. With a soft breeze in the air, dark-haired beauties in flouncy dresses flirted with a handsome men framed by the sweaters tied around their shoulders. As the city lights flickered in the distance, the scene felt more like a South Beach hot spot than an old Mexican resort having a midlife crisis.”

Aric Chen

Money doesn’t matter in South Beach. It’s all about connections, getting in the right groove, being with the right people. And with only a weekend to make it happen, you don’t have time to get in with the “in crowd”. The DreamMaker South Beach weekend is the difference between making the scene, and BEING the scene.

“You never know how many friends you have until you rent a villa on the beach”

It’s no secret where Miracle Mile is, or how to get your hands on yet another Fendi bag. But if you want to dine with your favourite stars of yesteryear, or get a last minute seat to the Oscars, that’s where you need the DreamMaker’s helping hand. Sure, you can have a great time with a layover in Los Angeles. But you can have memories that last if you want the DreamMaker to lift the curtain and take you behind the scenes.

“Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles”

Frank Lloyd Wright

My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of town, Chicago is
My kind of razzmatazz
And it has, all that jazz

The DreamMaker weekend is the perfect way
to wind up in the Windy City

“So if you visit Chicago, enjoy the many great courses, the Midwestern friendliness, and the cities other amenities. But if a stranger with a goofy swing wants to play for more than loose change, take a pass. It’s a long walk back to your hotel in bare feet.”

Mike Royko

The hardest part about New York City isn’t getting in, It’s getting out. The city takes on a file of its own as soon as you land, drawing you in with the best of everything and the crowds to match. With the DreamMaker New York getaway, It’s simple – whether you want to dine with a mafia Capo, take an underbelly tour with NYC Detective, or get an impossible prime time table at Per Se or Raul’s, fugheddaboutit – the DreamMaker’s got your back.

“They say life’s what happens when you’rebusy making other plans. But sometimes in New York, life is what happens when you’re waiting for a table.”
