For your "last" night in NYC: Where would you go to get all decked out? (Black Tie)
It's looking like I might spend two-three months in the Philippines for work, and sort of would like to plan one of those *perfect* NYC nights on the town where my sweetie and I can get all decked out and have a night on the town to remember.
Normally I love the $5 Hallal cart and sitting on a stoop, eating gelato from Il Lab, but I do have a lovely vintage Dior ball gown that I practically leveraged my tutition to afford three years ago when I was broke, and would love to bust that out for a wonderful upscale evening.
So here's my request:
- pre-dinner drinks
-dinner somewhere great that you could wear such an outfit (sweetie will be in suit I guess)
- perhaps dancing?
This isn't really my scene so I am entirely not sure of where would be appropriate, although some thoughts are perhaps: The Rainbow Room (does that even exist?), drinks at the Pierre, perhaps somewhere in the Time Warner Center?
Also, think more "old new york" and less "touristy trendy" ie, please nowhere like Buddakan or Pastis/mpd standbys.
Thank you very much!
Yep - the Rainbow Room exists. I brought some out of towners there for a drink last month. From what I understand you have to partake in the prix fixe dinner of about $200/pp in order to enter dining room. The lounge was packed with tourists but we did peak into the dining room - big band playing, lots of couples dancing and black tie. I think it's only open on the weekends, though.
Hmm... I'd say any part of town, and open to any cuisine, we are both very adventurous eaters.
And to be honest, it might not even have to be a crazy dinner, I'm not looking to go a zillion dollars into the hole here (haha barely have recovered from the dress!). So even just somewhere for cocktails would be fun.
So more just somewhere fun for drinks and possibly dancing... anywhere else besides the Rainbow room that you can think of?
