Any news about Oak Room/Bar in Plaza Hotel

Does anyone have any inside scoop on when they'll reopen? I heard a couple from France were thinking about taking it over. I'm coming for my Christmas trip next week and it will be so strange not to go to the Oak Bar and have a glass of champagne ........

  1. Doesn't look good for you. I think it is only open for private events in December.
    Truly evil, I know. I spent last xmas eve there.

    1. It is sad because it was always a "must" for us during the hustle and bustle of Christmas, great place to sit for a glass of Champagne or a Manhattan or two and escape the madding crowds. I will say though I am glad it finally closed until they sort things out because the last time we were in just prior to it closing was quite a let down. You could substitute Bemelmans Bar, similar vibe and old school charm.
