Start with Van Gogh (a famous bi-polar) Vodka & Dutch Gin, add something bubbly and something pickled, serve on the rocks and you have The Oak Room in New York City's bi-polar cocktail the Mel Gibson. It only makes sense that this hot mess of a man is named after something that can make you a hot mess as well.
The famed and fabled Oak Bar has been part of iconic New York since it first opened its doors in 1907. Originally designed as a men’s-only club, the Oak Room and Bar have played host to many of the city’s highest profile names and events, including Truman Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball, and continue to host glamorous events to this day.
The Oak Bar is shaking things up with a saucy nod to its men-only past with the introduction of a monthly burlesque show featuring The Sophisticates. Join silver-throated crooner and low comic Bastard Keith, and retro-futurist beauty Madame Rosebud in the Plaza Hotel's handsome and intimate Oak Bar. Step from the bustle of modern Central Park into your own private 1950’s cabaret, where playful chorines dance between tables and the host sips Scotch while keeping the energy up and the audience rolling. The next performance is July 25th.
There is nothing that I love more than vintage New York City! When I walk down the streets I always think of how the city used to be. People did not dare leave their apartments looking crazy. Going to a show or event meant you dressed to the nines! I would love to have things go back to the glamour of old New York. I guess that the Oak Room and Bar is a great place to start.
