The weather has been quite icky lately but the idea that it is suppose to be getting hotter soon gets people out the doors every night. After work parties are the best things about summer as it’s usually free and most people make it since it’s early enough so if you are tired, you still can make it home at a decent time.
A new after-work spot that started a couple of weeks ago is The Upstairs with DJ Dhundee and DJ Moni at Renaissance Hotel in Times Square, every Wednesday from 6pm-10pm. With Fiona Bloom as the party hostess, there’s no shortage of smiles and good energy going around. I have yet to check it but have heard great reviews and Pharoahe Monch even showed up for the first party. Will definitely be making it this Wednesday. For reviews of the last party, peep the excerpt below:
Going to The Upstairs and then to Atlanta
May 7th, 2008
It’s a gorgeous Springtime day indeed!
Except- the allergies are kicking in and the pollen is so high- as I sit here sniffling and talking through my noise and my head feels light- oh boy but that doesn’t stop a girl like me from going out. Hell no!
I’m off to ‘The Upstairs’ at The Renaissance Hotel Times Square. The classy hotel lounge/bar and restaurant – very swanky and it’s great to entertain your clients or take a meeting or impress someone.
Sagatiba Brazilian White Spirit signature cocktails all night- and light fare from Chop Suey.
Musical treats provided by MONI and DHUNDEE– my favorite pairing. Come out and you’ll see why.
Last week we kicked it off- April 30th and it was jumping from beginning till end.
Let’s keep it up….It’s a residency- 10 weeks– if it does well and they decide to extend it– we’ll all be happy!!” — Fiona Bloom
