Music Hall’s Cars and Stars

Because the vintage Music Hall elevator stops short of the roof, leaving a steep flight of stairs to climb to the hall’s rooftop 3Fifty Terrace, we agreed with the fellow passenger who opined, “I think Vince needs to raise money for a new, glass-enclosed exterior elevator to go all the way to the top.” Once up there, the 180 VIPs ($600-tickets) enjoyed an idyllic midsummer evening in the Secret Rooftop Garden. Views of the Madison Avenue neighborhood, vignettes with live “muses”, and socializing highlighted the cocktail hour before dinner in the white festival tent. There, long tables were accented with colorful flowers, small garden stone place cards painted with guests’ names and individual loaves of crusty French bread in a paper wrapper printed with the event sponsors names – “Our bread and butter.”
