“The Astor Room Celebrates 2011’s Best Films at its First Anniversary Soiree & Oscar Night Celebration”


The Astor Room located in the Kaufman Astoria Studios campus is hosting an elegant First Anniversary Oscar soiree on Sunday, February 26, 2012. Celebrate the year’s best films at a supper club filled with memories of a bygone film era. Guests can walk the red carpet before entering the Astor Room’s birthday celebration at the first anniversary cocktail hour where servers will be waiting with a champagne toast to thank patrons for their loyalty to the Astor Room.


Following the red carpet arrivals and cocktail hour, guests will be seated for a $60 pre fixe dinner while enjoying the live Oscar telecast. Menu items feature classics such as Oyster Astor and Short Rib Stroganoff as well as prohibition-era cocktails such as the Mary Pickford.


The Astor Room, celebrating its first anniversary this month, was the former private , commissary for Kaufman Astoria Studios and was often visited by film stars Rudolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson, the Marx Brothers, the Gish sisters and W.C. Fields. With a nod to one of New York’s founding families, as well as to its bustling Astoria location, The Astor Room, has been restored to its former old-New York film era glory and is now a Supper Club destination serving up decadent old-school New York fare, flawlessly executed classic New York inspired cocktails at the “Beaver Bar” and live music nightly.
