From 1938 through 1951, if you passed through Times Square, you would most probably stop by the Diamond Horseshoe – a dinner theater and club in the basement of the Paramount Hotel.

After 62 years of being closed down it experiencing a millionaire restoration that costed $20million. Finally, the place reopened the New Years Eve of 2014 with a breathtaking and surprising night for guests.

We know…it’s in Times Square! But, this is maybe one of the very few posts you’ll ever see with recommendations of things to do there. This is surely a worthy exception!

The talented Fashion Editor we adore, Giovanna Battaglia, is the Creative Director of this theatrical dinner named today as the “Queen of the Night”.

Is was reborn as a mixture of theater, music, circus, culinary experience, design and nightlife. It offers guests an interactive entertainment experience with a complete sit-down dinner.

Cocktail or gala attire is required! So, as they say: “Dress for the Queen”!
