The Council of Fashion Designers of America and W Magazine are sponsoring Movie Night Monday at Bar Basque, the restaurant in the Eventi Hotel designed by Syd Mead, the visionary designer behind such iconic sci-fi films as Blade Runner, Aliens, and Tron. On Monday, July 25, partygoers will enjoy Pedro Almodovar’s critically acclaimed Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown on the large screen directly across from the terrace at Bar Basque. Fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg and W Magazine Editor in Chief Stefano Tonchi are hosts for the evening and guests will include Robert Geller, Melissa George, Nanette Lepore, Johan Lindeberg, Nicole Miller, Monique Pean, Marcus Wainwright and more.
Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is considered Almodovar’s breakthrough hit and stars Carmen Maura, Julieta Serrano and a very youthful Antonio Banderas. Bar Basque Chef de Cuisine Yuhi Fujinaga will create special tapas and menu choices inspired by the evening’s movie, and specialty cocktails will be whipped up by Bar Basque’s resident mixologists.
