The “Grand Dame of Madison Avenue” is gearing up to celebrate its 86th birthday, and what better way is there to do it then to share the celebration with all!
As you may or may not already know, the Roosevelt Hotel opened up its doors for the first time on September 22, 1924. In the midst of the roaring 20’s, The Roosevelt rose and became a New York City icon that remained throughout the ages. It’s interior, which has been restored to its original grandeur, radiates the rich American History that has set apart The Roosevelt from other hotels. Such history includes Guy Lombardo’s first show, which then followed with 30 years of legendary performances including the first concert featuring “Auld Lang Sang” on New Year’s Eve. The Roosevelt holds such a dignified presence in New York , that it has been the backdrop of choice for filming many motion pictures including The Boiler Room, Wall Street, Quiz Show, Presumed Innocent, Malcolm X, Monday Night Mayhem, The French Connection, Hanky Panky, Maid in Manhattan, The Hoax and 1408.
To commemorate the hotel’s 86th year, lunch specials for $19.24 (year the hotel opened) will be featured at Roosevelt’s exclusive dining locations, Madison Club Lounge and VanderBar whenever “Happy Birthday” is mentioned. The lunch includes your choice of two select entrees and two non-alcoholic beverages, so you and a friend can enjoy a delicious meal at a special price.
Entree choices at Madison Club Lounge include an Asian Chicken Wrap, Madison Burger, Chicken Caesar Salad or Chicken Penne Pasta. VanderBar, which is the best place to grab a quick bite with its convenient location on the street and right near Grand Central Station, will be offering a Cobb Salad, Turkey Reuben and the Vander Burger as entree choices.
