Cafe Carlyle reopened!
After a three-month renovation, New York's legendary Cafe Carlyle will reopened on Sept 19. The ceiling has been raised by two feet, LED lighting has been installed, the stage became a bit larger and the sound system a bit more professional. The murals by Marcel Vertes have been freshened up and in parts even added to - for instance by a tribute to the pianist and singer Bobby Short who used to perform in the room for decades. Eartha Kitt was chosen to open the season, then the singer Barbara Cook will follow, and on Monday evenings Woody Allen's jazz band will perform.
