Join us as we travel back in time to the turn of the century, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street).

We will begin the night with an informal reception, where banquet guests can enjoy delightful spiced punch and a guided tour through the garden and beautifully preserved mansion. At 8pm, we open the doors to the secret ballroom and invite you to a historically accurate banquet, featuring multiple courses and wine, and a small lecture on Victorian dining from our chef and expert Rebecca Leigh Silverman.

Ball-only guests can arrive at 9pm for their own spiced punch reception, house and grounds tours. At 10pm, the ball officially begins with Retro Remix Orchestra: classic songs and current pop hits performed in orchestral, hot jazz and swing arrangements, interspersed with 19th century dance music.  the orchestra will strike up a waltz, and everyone will twirl in candlelight until 1am.

Dinner tickets include banquet food and drink and the ball, and are very limited. Partial menu TBA two weeks before the event.

Dress code:
1800s through 1919 ballroom, formal or military (for men)--or as close as you can get with modern formal. Men: tuxes or tails. Ladies: corsets and long gowns. Costume inspiration Pinterest board (not ours): http://bit.ly/1WvlVyB - and ours for banquet/ball/tea research: http://bit.ly/29n5fZm

About our chef:
Culinary historian Rebecca Leigh Silverman has over 20 years experience working in living history museums as an historic culinary expert. She specializes in period hearthside cooking and libations. When not cooking in the past, she's a Brooklyn based bartender, trying odd old recipes out on her modern day customers and talking about the perfect sazerac.

About our venue:
Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.
