Last night I went to a seminar with Mindy Grossman, CEO of HSN (the Home Shopping Network) and business woman extraordinare. The seminar was hosted by Cosmetic Executive Women at the historic men’s-turned-coed members-only the Harmonie Club.
Located just shy of Central Park, the Harmonie Club is one of those old school establishments. Ceilings in carved wood. Floral wallpaper. Huge, shiny chandeliers.
It feels a bit like where grandpa used to take grandma for a fancy white-gloved dinner. But in a good way. The appetizers were fancy takes on classics like chicken quesadillas and pigs in a blanket. Cocktails were good and strong.
A quick glance into the fitness facility suggests the club is home to a lot of Upper East Side 30-40yr old males (think Mr. Big ; ) ). But like most members-only clubs it seems it’s not so exclusive anymore. Non-members can enjoy private dining options too.
