We’ve all gawked at viral videos of uber-cool people sabering a Champagne bottle. And now it’s your chance to shine and give your TikTok followers a real show.

St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has a long-standing tradition of sabrage. The ritual began at the hotel in 1904 when John Jacob Astor IV, the founder of the chain, would put on a show every evening to close out the day and welcome the night — in style.
