Since the Roosevelt Hotel’s elegant Blue Room opened in 1935, the stage welcomed some of the most famous performers of the 20th century including Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Tina Turner, Jimmy Durante and Carol Channing, among others. Now, the historic hotel will transport guests back in time for an evening of luxe dining and a show by The Great American Speakeasy on July 27.
The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a champagne toast in Teddy’s Café followed by seating in The Blue Room for a four-course dinner and incredible show. Guests are encouraged to get glam and don their dancing shoes for dinner, dancing and unforgettable performances.
The Great American Speakeasy will feature comedian and musician Joe Piscopo (“Saturday Night Live”) along with Dave Damiani and The No Vacancy Orchestra playing your favorite tunes from “The Great American Songbook.” Singer and actress Renee Olstead (“Still Standing,” “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”) joins the band for performances rich with style and swag.
The Great American Speakeasy supper club tickets are $125 each, excluding tax and gratuity. Reservations can be made by calling (504) 335-3129 or visiting http://therooseveltneworleans.com/specials-and-packages/125th-anniversary-of-the-roosevelt-new-orleans.html.
