2017 Tony Awards Gala


Following the biggest night in Broadway last Sunday, award winners, nominees and guests all made their way to the Tony Awards Gala at the Plaza.  The hotel had several rooms for attendees to eat, drink, dance and mingle.

Upon first entering the space, you’re ushered into the bar area.  We spotted many celebrities like Josh Gad, Ben Platt, Danny DeVitto, and Josh Groban waiting to get a drink or heading into the next room.  From there you can continue on into the ballroom.  There’s tables set up and food stations to grab a quick bite before hitting the dance floor.

The live band played classic hits from decades past and even passed the microphone around to let guests sing a little.  At a party celebrating the biggest stars on Broadway, you better believe they were able to hold their own and then some!

Up the stairs is another seating area and more food including a carving station.  However, the best treats were actually downstairs at the Food Hall.  If you’re unfamiliar, the Plaza hotel has an underground Food Hall where you can purchase delicious treats from Todd English, Sabi Sushi, Luke’s Lobster Rolls, Epicerie Boulud, Tartinery, Billy’s Bakery and more.  It’s a great place to stop and grab a bite any day of the week.  However, on this occasion, each restaurant offered free mini plates so that guests could roam around the food hall and nosh as they went. Like a giant cocktail party serving the very best from each establishment!

The gala is an amazing way to cap off the Tony Awards allowing everyone the chance to catch up, eat some delicious food and let loose!
