Revelers target Soho House party in Cannes

Fete offered partygoers a decadent feast

Like hungry rebels attempting to storm the palace, would-be Soho House party revelers pulled every trick in the book to get inside the castle-like Chateau La Napoule walls Friday night. You’d think the long, slow lines wrapped around the stone perimeter would mean it’s every-man-for-himself, but there were acts of kindness: like CAA agents rescuing other tenpercentary employees. “This is Josh Lieberman,” one CAA-er, pointing to an ICM agent (clearly not Lieberman), told a list-minder.

Inside, it was bacchanalian, as Lakeshore’s David Dinerstein described it — a decadent feast of roast pig, lobster and fountains of iced magnums of Mumm’s. While the vast majority of those who did penetrate the walls were Brits, Yanks such as Par Vantage’s John Lesher and producer Lawrence Bender still managed find their way in and enjoy the view of the Mediterranean off the Chateau’s back terrace.
