“Dan Searing and Chantal Tseng are hosting a New Year’s Eve party in the Reading Room at Petworth Citizen. Seatings are 7pm, 9pm and 11pm. Tickets range from $50-$65. Limited seating. Tickets and more info here.”

  • We went for the James Bond “inspired” drinks, they were fantastic.

    Two drinks and a small plate. $50-$65. Yikes!!!

    I’m not paying $50-65 for two drinks and a small plate unless they’re serving Oscar Wilde Wieners.

    Honestly for NYE that’s a pretty decent deal. If I didn’t already have plans for NYE I’d totally be up for this.

    Yeah…I think their drink program is good, but the food value isn’t great. We spent $10 for a few pieces of trumpet mushrooms recently. Paying $50 for one small plate and two drinks, just to hang out for 2 hours, doesn’t seem like a great deal. If they also included more food, such as passed hors d’oeuvres, this would be more appealing. For example, you can spend $50 at Slash Run for all inclusive food and drink for NYE. Definitely a different vibe there, but an example of the value you can get in the area.

    I appreciate the feedback on the price/value but I wanted to clarify that it includes 10% tax and 20% gratuity so perhaps it will seem more fair when you think of it as 2 drinks with luxury ingredients and a small plate for $38.46. Happy New Year!
