TAO Uptown Event Description
Nightlife legend TAO Uptown is hosting New York City’s party of the year this New Year’s Eve. TAO Group is the powerhouse behind NYC’s finest nightlife establishments such as Marquee, Avenue, Beauty & Essex, and LAVO. In TAO Uptown they deliver something special, though, and this triple threat has been a staple in the nightlife scene for almost twenty years. A popular Asian bistro by day and sultry lounge by night, TAO Uptown easily has top bragging rights as a premier mega-restaurant, sophisticated cocktail lounge, and full throttle nitery in one. Join us for an amenity-packed event this NYE.
Stroll into TAO Uptown’s oasis and be met by a stocked bar full of your favorite spirits. It’s yours for the taking this New Year’s Eve because TAO is offering a five hour premium open bar with a ticket to this event. A live DJ will send sound waves of the year’s best Top 40, house, and hip hop beats throughout, and the energy of the crowd here will be as contagious as always. Soak it in as the DJ leads you in a live countdown and when the clock hits the golden hour, clink glasses of complimentary champagne and toast to an explosive launch into the New Year. VIP tickets deliver unthinkable luxuries like white-glove bottle service, reserved seating, and access to a VIP Mezzanine.
This warmly lit, tri-level space combines sensual décor and premium amenities to deliver parties that are talked about for months after they occur. A 16-foot Buddha instantly impresses – hovering above a reflecting pool of swimming Japanese carp. Candles twinkle behind him and plush greenery, silk screens, and woven light fixtures add zen to the entertainment citadel. TAO Group boasts that TAO Uptown is “the largest and most popular Asian restaurant in New York City.” That’s a bold statement to make, but we’d wager that’s the truth. Frequented by celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, Ricky Martin, Robert DeNiro, and Sir Anthony Hopkins and members of the Yankees and Giants, it’s clear that New York’s elite rely on TAO for an unparalleled experience. Nestled between Midtown and the Upper East Side, right off of the elite Fifth Avenue, TAO Uptown is in the prime location to live up to its iconic status. Impressive square footage aside – this space is nothing short of grand. Originally built in the 19th century as a stable for the Vanderbilt family, Restaurant Business’s Top 100 restaurant has been turned into “an Asian temple-like space.”
TAO Uptown cannot be outdone, especially not on New Year’s Eve. Head uptown, New Yorkers, an experience awaits you that you’ll never forget.
