SARDI’S DAY OR NIGHT

Sardi’s Daytime is THE place to see and be seen. It’s an area to gather with other starlets and leading men to regroup and hang out, taking a break from the day’s events. Grab a table and chat with friends, or choose from our menu of delectable, informative programs. After the curtain goes down, it’s time for Sardi’s Nighttime. This is the place to let your hair down, grab a cocktail from the cash bar and watch the stars come to life.
