Product Description

This colorful image showing a stylish couple riding a white horse on a merry-go-round is from a 1947 menu from the iconic Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.

The hotel was an oasis of glamour and luxury when it first opened in midtown Manhattan in 1931 and its famed Art Deco interiors were the backdrop of countless celebrations for the upper crust.

The Wedgewood Room – where this menu came from – had a nightclub atmosphere and Frank Sinatra was one of many famous entertainers who performed here.

 At age 29, Ol’ Blue Eyes already had legions of young fans and hotel management were worried that the young singer might be too ‘modern’ for the Waldorf’s rich and sedate clientele.

His first show in 1944 was a hit, however, and the legendary singer returned to the Waldorf time and again. In 1964 he and his wife Barbara moved into The Cole Porter Suite – suite 33a in The Towers – and resided there till 1988.

The Waldorf Astoria closed its doors for $1billion of renovations in 2017 and has re-opened with 375 hotel rooms. 

This menu epitomizes a carefree night out and is dated New Year’s Eve in 1947.

Gallery quality Giclée print on natural white, matte, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using Epson archival inks. Custom printed with border for matting and framing.
