Since 1907 New York’s famed The Plaza Hotel has been the symbol of class, elegance and pure luxury. The dream of three of Manhattan’s elite, this classic hotel came to life when the three men purchased the property with the hotel of the same name and turned it into one of the most iconic hotels in all the world. With nothing but decadence and opulence in mind, the men spared no expense or detail in developing this Midtown marvel.
Fast forward to modern day and The Plaza Hotel is still as beautiful and fabulous as ever. It has been the set for many movie scenes, the locale for plenty of swanky soirees and of course, one of New York City’s most visited landmarks. Dignitaries, celebrities and socialites alike have all graced the floors of this 19 story building spanning the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street, directly across from Central Park.
Wanting to gather like the gliterrati, I’ve always wanted to host a party there. So when I was considering location options for my haute holiday fete, this gorgeous Gotham destination was my first choice. I wanted somewhere my friends and I could dress up, feel fancy and share some lifelong memories and The Plaza Hotel fit the profile.
But how would I be able to afford such a lavish affair? After all, parties at The Plaza have been known to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars! The answer – the Rose Club just a flight above the Champagne Club in the hotel lobby.
After some research, I learned the formerly known Persian Room offered live jazz, an epicurean menu and an incomparable cocktail list. What could be more fabulous than that?
As soon as I made my decision, I sent out a Facebook invite letting my friends know this season’s fancy fete would soon be underway at this New York City landmark. The response was overwhelming and more than 40 people attended this swanky soiree. And while it didn’t all happen without a couple of hiccups (make sure you get in touch with the manager, Scott, prior to attending as reservations are typically not accepted), it was a beautiful night to remember filled with the loveliest of libations, marvelous music and most of all unforgettable memories.
If you’re looking to plan an event that doesn’t require too much effort but has the look and feel of a party fit for a princess, The Rose Club at the Plaza Hotel is the way to go!
Happy party planning!
