"The hedonistic frenzy of the Jazz Age can still be experienced today in high style at The Salon..."
"Five days after the premiere of MAD MEN's final season, vintage fete The Salon throws a bash likely to be the most envied of all the send-off parties for the show. Through some dark magic they got their hands on the unopened antique 1960s booze bottles used as props on set... there's more than enough for a full night of Draper-worthy cocktails."
“well-turned-out young couples danced among the crowd. It was about 11 hours into the second New York Hot Jazz Festival, and the energy was far from flagging... In case you weren’t aware, these are boom times for throwback jazz in New York City... this move- ment has lately had an infusion of precocious youth and fresh enthusiasm, with an eager, style-conscious audience to match... ”
“If you can't be in New Orleans this week, The Salon is making every effort to capture all the madness and gaiety of the French quarter and deposit it on Delancey Street. Following the format of its highly enjoyable New Year's Eve blowout, the Salon will fill each of the DL's three floors with a different band... highly recommended.”
“The Retro Nouveau scene, whose events combine traditional jazz and swing bands with social dancing, vintage costumes, burlesque and vaudeville, reaches its pinnacle in summer... the biggest event in Manhattan is the July 4 Spectacular..”
"The three bands alone make it worth your while to skip the Hamptons for this event..."
