In the candlelit space of the Café Carlyle, there is silence. The only sounds are the clinking of cutlery, hushed laughter, and the artificial “ snap” of an iPhone camera pointed at the empty stage. Everyone waits, politely, for the evening entertainment. But, even with nobody standing on that stage, it’s still got star power. Bobby Short, the 20th century's most popular cover artist, held tenure here for 35 years, so did popular session pianist George Freyer. And, nowadays, you can often spot Paul McCartney along with musical rival Mick Jagger, nodding- approvingly, we assume- at the artists performing there. Somebody breaks the silence. “It’s Woody Allen!” they say and just like that the evening’s entertainment begins. Woody Allen and his Jazz Band…nothing less than that. The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in New York. But that’s not why some of the biggest A-Listers on the planet check-in time and time again. Here it’s all about being among friends, and living a lifestyle that you can’t get anywhere else but behind these gilded doors. And what a lifestyle it is. Enjoy sweeping views of Central Park from within its elegant Art Deco rooms, sip champagne under a 24-karat gold leaf ceiling at the Bemelmans Bar, and get pampered in its Yves Durif Salon before heading out on Fifth Avenue… now that’s the high life. Kindly note that the hotel will undergo refurbishment work, taking place Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm until the end of the year. The noisier work is limited to the hours of 10:00am to 4:00pm on certain days.
