Imagine if Cirque du Soleil hosted your cousin’s wedding—and your cousin was an extra in Eyes Wide Shut. That just scratches the surface of Queen of the Night, a dinner-and-a-show party. It’s hosted in the once legendary burlesque club the Diamond Horseshoe, under the Paramount Hotel, which was only recently restored. Unsurprisingly, it comes from the minds behind The Box, the infamous “theatre of varieties” on the Lower East Side. With a “food performance director” in charge of setting the bar with the right number of bubbling beakers and choosing the birdcages in which to serve the main-course lobsters, it’s guaranteed to get you out of your comfort zone and onto another plane.
