Metropolitan Room Presents THE SOPHISTICATES Bi-Weekly
The Metropolitan Room is proud to announce that they now have a bi-weekly Ole Fashioned Burlesque Show at The Metropolitan Room - THE BEST IN NYC. It's Sophisticated. It's Exciting. It's Entertaining. It's a MUST SEE. A guaranteed memorable experience.
“The Sophisticates” has the distinction of being the only show to have been evicted from the Plaza Hotel. Specializing in classic burlesque, “The Sophisticates,” is a retroglam ride into a thrilling nightclub reality that nods to the past while winking to the present.
Each night features a new line-up of four highly distinguished striptease artists performing two numbers each throughout the evening. (That’s more strips in one show than can be counted on one hand.) Keeping the festivities inching along at an appropriately brisk pace is Bastard Keith, a showman with a soft spot for tradition combined with a yen for brainy postmodern conceptual humor. Called “a variety favorite” by Time Out NY he’s MC’d for Revealed Burlesque (entire run), Floating Kabarette, Rhinestone Follies, Pink Room Burlesque, D20 Burlesque, the Slipper Room, Wasabassco, Burlesque Nouveau, and Le Scandal Cabaret.
Madame Rosebud has performed coast to coast and overseas with stops at the London Burlesque Festival, the New York Burlesque Festival, and competing at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. The flowers blooming with Rosebud on August 10, 24 and September 14 will include none other than Bea B. Heart, JubiLee Diamond, Dirty Martini, Perle Noire, Tansy, Bettina May, Maine Attraction and Kristina Nekyia
“The Sophisticates” plays the second and fourth Friday of the month, all at 11:30pm, until more shows need to be added. The entertainment cover charge is $30, plus a two-drink minimum. Rated "Best of New York" by New York Magazine, the Nightlife and Bistro Award-winning Metropolitan Room is at 34 West 22nd Street.
