Celebrate New Year’s in 1960s Mad Men Style

If you’re looking for a different party this New Year’s eve that might be a bit reminiscent of what your parents might have experienced during the Frank Sinatra era, check out New Years Eve at The Carlyle Club in Washington, DC.

Washington Monument fireworks Washington DCNew York’s jazz/pop vocalist and trumpeter Rob Zappulla and his 7 piece orchestra will be the featured act at the elegant Carlyle Club in nearby Alexandria, Virginia.

Zappulla highly entertaining nightclub-style act includes traditional pop tunes, classic big band hits and updated versions of American standards.  He’s been the featured singer with The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and opened for classic Motown groups such as The Temptations, The Drifters, and The Shirelles.

His rich baritone voice smoothly covers classic standards such as “Going out of My Head,” “You Made Me so Very Happy,” and his personal tribute to Frank Sinatra, “Here’s to Frank”.

Request one of their classic black leather booths or a table near the large dance floor and spend a night in a fashion that would make ol’ Blue Eyes proud.  Just remember, if you’re planning on smoking just like the guys in Mad Men, that Virginia restaurants and bars are now non-smoking.

The evening includes a 5-course dinner, dancing, New Year’s party favors and the classic midnight champagne toast.   A bar only cocktail package is also available.

    That really sounds like a night out in style! Especially with the complimentary valet parking and the 5 course dinner. Sounds great.
