Holiday Festivities at the Lotos Club, on the Upper East Side

Lotos Club, nyc
Photo by myself at the Lotos Club, at 66th Street and Fifth Avenue.

The stunning interiors of the Lotos Club, a private literary club, were decorated for the holidays. I was lucky to have been invited to a party held there, last week.

The Club is located inside a building constructed in 1900. One can just imagine how it was when first built, with people walking about in historic dress.

The floors were oak in a herringbone pattern. The fireplace was ablaze. There were waitstaff milling about with champagne flutes, wine and hors d'oeuvres. Tables were set up, laden with cheeses, oysters, shrimp and all else. Needless to say I felt underdressed!

The immense fireplace in the library was festooned with garlands. Books line the walls and are accessed by rolling ladders.
