Diamond Horseshoe Nightclub to Open at The Paramount Hotel on New Year's Eve
The Paramount Hotel, near Times Square, is capping off a rather good year for the hotel--multimillion dollar renovation and a new management company--by opening the Diamond Horseshoe nightclub on New Year's Eve.
Located in the basement, the Horseshoe originally opened at the hotel in 1938 by eccentric theater impresario, Billy Rose, as a supper club that featured dinner theaters, vaudeville-style revues and a chorus of showgirls called, "Billy Rose's long-stemmed beauties." Seventy-five years later, the Diamond Horseshoe will now feature a show called, Queen of the Night, from Randy Weiner of Variety Worldwide, and who also produced "Sleep No More." Here's how a release describes the new show:
Queen of The Night is a unique theatrical experience that integrates food, music, dance, fashion, theater and circus performances, as well as an impressive creative team that includes Giovanna Battaglia for the creative vision, fashion designer Thom Browne for the costumes, and Jennifer Rubell for a curated food experience, to name a few.
The show will have four multiple entry times each night but it will only run for six weeks at the Diamond Horseshoe. Tickets can be bought here and start at $125 a person. That price includes a welcome cocktail from the Mad Distillery Bar, artfully sculpted canapés and "a sit-down feast complete with flowing decanters of wine." Other more expensive tickets can be bought and which include unlimited drinks from the bar.
The New Year's Eve opening night show will start a little bit later than usual and will run until 2am with an open bar, music, dancing and a countdown to the New Year. Those tickets will start at $300 a person and already, the 9:30pm showing is sold-out. But if you're looking for a hotel room to go with your show ticket, the hotel is already sold-out.
