Diamond Horseshoe Reopens Tonight with QUEEN OF THE NIGHT
Billy Rose's legendary supper club, Diamond Horseshoe, reopens today, on New Year's Eve, in its original subterranean location beneath midtown's Paramount Hotel 75 years after it first opened its doors and forever changed New York nightlife. To celebrate its reemergence, Randy Weiner's newest genre-crossing, environmental experience, Queen of the Night, begins performances tonight, for six weeks only, with an official opening night on Sunday, February 2, 2014.
In 1938, Billy Rose opened Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel featuring the greatest performers, top vaudeville acts, and the most beautiful showgirls in the world. The New York Times called Diamond Horseshoe the "gayest frolic on Broadway" and it remained a vibrant, groundbreaking venue until it shuttered in 1951. It has been vacant ever since. Until now.
Diamond Horseshoe is a six-thousand square foot ballroom that will serve as not just a prime midtown nightlife destination, but also a venue for environmental theatrical experiences, events, and other unique programming. The space, having experienced a complete renovation, features two bars, a brand new kitchen, banquet style tables, and various private rooms.
