At the VIBE Agency, we are always talking about new products, cool events and great ideas. Today, we’re going to focus on another aspect that serves many purposes during an event or even stands on its own. Entertainment. Entertainment wears many faces in the event realm, sometimes it is a background performer at a cocktail, or doubles for décor, pushes your product or content, gets the dance floor going…or is the focal point of the event. Today, let’s focus on entertainment as a standalone focal point of an evening.
Picture this. A small group in New York City needs an evening out and they want great food and entertainment but don’t have the budget to buy out a space, deck it out and get a headline act. What to do?
With so many great dining and entertainment options available in New York, why not give them a Night on Broadway? There are so many different scenarios that can be put together to create a wonderful experience out on the town in the Big Apple.
DB Bistro Moderne is four-star chef Daniel Boulud’s modern French-American bistro where the traditions of French cuisine meet the flavors of the American market. The menu reflects the changing seasons and a focus on the simplicity of fine ingredients. DB promises dining that is as easy-going and convivial as it is delicious, in a casual and contemporary setting. Located in midtown, at the crossroads of fashion and theater, it is the perfect spot for pre- and post-theatre dining.
Sister Act: Direct from London and based on the hilarious hit film, Sister Act features an original score by 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast) and direction by 4-time Tony® winner Jerry Zaks (La Cage aux Folles, Guys and Dolls.). When disco diva Deloris witnesses a crime, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the power of friendship, Sister Act is reason for Broadway to rejoice!
“Irresistible! One big, spirit-soaring joyful noise!” –The Times of London
After Theater Stop:
Stone Rose, a lounge by brothers and founders of the Gerber Group, Rande and Scott Gerber, fuses cutting edge interiors, exclusivity and signature cocktails to create an ambiance of style and comfort. Located on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center, the lounge was conceptualized to echo the posh atmosphere of a classically timeless hotel lounge, coupled with a new extensive small bites menu, an in-house sushi chef and breathtaking views of Central Park. The lounge’s décor is designed to emphasize the unique art piece showcased in the venue and the seating areas are constructed to provide both a feeling of intimacy, as well as an open atmosphere made for stylish Manhattan-ites.
There’s nothing better than a great night of great food, great music and late night fun in the glamor and glitz of New York City. Why not give your clients an experience they’ll never forget? It’s a clever option that fits in with smaller budgets we are seeing these days, yet gives guests an experience in NYC that they are likely to never forget.
Take note, that while it’s top of mind idea for NYC, there are many other similar experiences that can be created that highlight entertainment as the focal point of the evening – no matter what town you’re in.
