Don’t You Want to Be on the Roof at St Cloud?

Sixteen-floors above Times Square is the new home of Wit’s End™ at St. Cloud in the Knickerbocker Hotel. Nobody else has outdoor space for a vintage Jazz Age party like this in New York. Plus there is a cigar lounge stocked by Nat Sherman’s. Look at these views from our January party. Our next one is Feb. 27!

Wit’s End™ presents Dandy Wellington and His Band, at the 7th anniversary party at St. Cloud in the Knickerbocker Hotel, Saturday, Feb. 27, 2016. This is the fourth straight year that Dandy has performed at our anniversary party: He’s played February 2013, 2014, and 2015. Order Tickets Online Via Brown Paper Tickets

Tonight the party is in the Knickerbocker Hotel, opened in 1906 by the legendary John Jacob Astor IV on the corner of Forty-second Street and Broadway. In 2015, following a $225-million renovation, it reopened to glowing reviews. Wit’s End will be ensconced in St. Cloud—called “New York’s greatest rooftop lounge” with sweeping views of Times Square—sixteen stories above Broadway.

Also on the bill tonight is DJ Mike Will Cut You, New York’s vintage music DJ who plays classic sounds from 80-year old recordings. He is the host of “Ragged But Right” on WFMU Radio and performs at the Jazz Age Lawn Party. The hostess is glamorous showgirl Kita St. Cyr, channeling Mae West, Yma Sumac, and a dash of Lili St. Cyr. The co-sponsor of the party is the Dorothy Parker Society, the drinking club with a book problem.
