NYC&G's VIP Tasting & Green Room Opening This Fall at the Bedford Playhouse
NYC&G (New York Cottages & Gardens) is proud to announce the NYC&G VIP Tasting and Green Room at the newly renovated Bedford Playhouse opening this October. The expansive 6-million-dollar plan to save and reinvent the playhouse was spearheaded by a passionate groundswell of community supporters and donors. The project was brought to the finish line by the generosity of legendary music producer Clive Davis, now the namesake for the Clive Davis Arts Center within the Bedford Playhouse. The new playhouse will feature three state-of-the-art theaters and spacious café with full bar and offer a variety of rich programming including film releases, art exhibits, music events and more. NYC&G partnered with Brittany Bromley Interiors and RC Torre Construction to transform the 200 sq. foot blank space into a hidden gem within the Playhouse which will become a luxury VIP Tasting and Green Room to host intimate wine tastings and events.
“We are so excited and honored that the Bedford Playhouse VIP Tasting & Green Room was selected for this incredible renovation opportunity by NYC&G,” said Sarah Long, Bedford Playhouse Board Chairman. “This will be a very important room for us where special guests, celebrities and speakers can relax before going on stage. Each of the venues in the new Playhouse has its own warm and wonderful personality. Thanks to NYC&G and Brittany Bromley’s creative stamp, our most elegant and intimate room yet is coming to fruition.
“We were delighted to see the enormous support and effort from the community to save this historic playhouse,” said C&G Media Group CEO and Publication Director, Marianne Howatson. We pulled our resources to make the room wonderful. We are grateful to Brittany Bromley, JWH Design & Cabinetry, R.C. Torre and all our sponsors for helping us create this unique and exquisite space.
The room will feature a custom wet bar designed by Jennifer Howard of JWH Design & Cabinetry that includes a 70-bottle wine preservation, double drawer refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher provided by Thermador as well as a Carrera marble counter top by Neolith, installed by Infinity Stone. Fordham Marble will provide a black and white mosaic tile floor. The Tailored Home built a custom, rich caramel leather banquette and occasional chairs designed just for the room.
“We were inspired by the concept of a VIP Tasting room that felt more like a library- moody, dark and elegant,” says Brittany Bromley. “Instead of a classic dark brown or navy high gloss cabinetry, we reimagined the traditional library feel, with mercury glass, leather, brass, marble and high gloss deep green millwork. The deep green millwork and gold leaf ceiling is provided by Ressource House of Paints all adorned with crystal chandeliers and sconces by Vaughan. Other sponsors include Aitoro Appliance, Bender and SA Baxter.
The Bedford Playhouse is planning a Grand Opening September 28-30. The three-day celebration will include parties, family films, wine tastings, entertainment and a special discussion with Clive Davis and Paul Schaffer. Guests of the Saturday night evening will also get a sneak peak of NYC&G’s VIP Tasting and Green Room. The full completion of the room will be revealed at an exclusive event by invitation only on October 18th, following an intimate wine tasting event hosted by Martha Stewart,who will be the first to use the newly designed space.
