The Paramount Hotel in New York’s Theater District is in the midst of an exciting revival after a $40 million renovation by real estate mogul and patron of the arts Aby Rosen, of RFR Holding LLC.
The landmark New York property first opened in 1928, and is one of the very few hotels designed and built by prolific theater architect Thomas W. Lamb. The hotel’s aesthetic combines its art-deco heritage with modern design, creating a sexy urban atmosphere that embodies old New York glamour. Such rich history makes it a rare Times Square New York hotel with a soul.
Paramount’s transformation will be complete with the re-opening of the Diamond Horseshoe, which was first opened by eccentric theater impresario Billy Rose in 1938. The New York supper club was known for dinner theaters, vaudeville-style reviews, and a chorus of showgirls called “Billy Rose’s long-stemmed beauties.”
On December 31st, 2013, 75 years after its original opening, the Diamond Horseshoe will re-open with a variety of programming – the first of which will be a production called Queen of the Night, brought to you by Randy Weiner of Variety Worldwide LLC, which produced
Sleep No More.
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.
