La Dolce Vita | LIBERTINE at Le Winch

The LIBERTINE event "La Dolce Vita" on 1 Feb 2012 was close to my heart: the iconic Fellini movie playing in the background, Martini/Ultra-lounge mood music on the hi-fi, Phuket's bon vivant, libertine-set in a convivial state of mind and Chef Vincent's delicious interpretation of Italian & Roman classics.
