Dancing into the Next Decade: New Year's Eve at Soho Grand

back to list

It’s been a little over five decades since Truman Capote invited a glittering array of his friends to the Plaza Hotel’s Grand Ballroom for one of the most legendary parties New York has ever known. A run of photographs preserves the moment: guests dressed to the nines in a monochrome color palette, their identities concealed behind ornate masks as they kick up their heels amid the glow of candelabras in a landmark New York setting.

Each New Year’s Eve, Soho Grand picks up where Capote left off, transforming the hotel’s entire lobby floor into a black and white gala complete with masks, black tie dress, and free-flowing champagne. In keeping with the theme of Capote’s glamorous soiree, guests are invited to mingle incognito, disguised with a mask of their choosing as they ring in the New Year to the sounds of Wade Crescent, Ashley Smith, Dras DJ, Justin Miller & Jacques Renault.

Esteemed guests will enjoy an evening hosted by Brianna Lance, Niko Liakaris,  Mike Freko, Jayme Wisneski and LCR (more to be announced) with tiers of hors d’oeuvres and a premium open bar, equipped with Laurent Perrier Champagne. Come 1am, Blind Dragon of L.A. will host. an open Karaoke floor until the early hours of 2020.

Attire is black tie, masks are mandatory, and dancing is obligatory.

Tickets start at $199 and are available at www.sohograndnye.com
