Premiering in February 2009, and presented by Diane Naegel and Don Spiro, Wit’s End is a celebration of Jazz Age lifestyle, music and aesthetics. We like to think that enjoying fine cocktails, dancing the night away and dressing in your finest is not a lost art in New york City. And so we offer you Wit’s End with our signature cocktails, new vintage and special drinks to try each month, and music to keep your toes tapping! Charleston, jitterbug, and Balboa to live hot jazz, and enjoy an elegant and jaunty evening with us!
Wit’s End presents our jazz-filled events on the last Saturday of each month (January-October) at Flute, 205 West 54th Street, New York City. Flute was once the speakeasy Clube Intime run by the infamous Texas Guinan! Celebrate with us from 7pm til midnight. Bands we have featured include Grandpa Musselman & his Syncopators, Baby Soda, The Red Hook Ramblers, Gelber and Manning, Cynthia Sayer, Brian Newman and the Moonlighters.
Our name comes from the nickname that Dorothy Parker gave to Aleck Woollcott’s East Side apartment which became a somewhat infamous hangout for the Round Tablers and others in the New York social set.
We hope to see you soon. Join our Facebook Group for more information.
