The early 20th Century wood paneling; the diamond encrusted chandeliers; the pristinely laid, white clothed tables. None convey the mood or atmosphere one would associate with a happening music venue, and yet this dapper restored hotel is luring people in droves – and not just for chef Eric Hara’s impeccable cuisine. The Monday Night Supper Club is a popular event occurring weekly. Guest artists ranging from soul debuts, to the daughter of Billy Joel have been booked to serenade guests within the grandiose bar, while Wednesdays proffer traditional jazz and blues from the likes of Brian Newman. Weekend acts vary, however Lady Gaga recently appeared for an impromptu duet with Brian Newman in the close of 2010, and is rumored to appear quite regularly during her holiday months.
