Just in time for the holiday season, the Eloise Rawther Sweet Shop is opening its doors at The Plaza on Friday, November 23. Eloises favorite treats will be available for purchase at the brand new pop-up shop and in typical Eloise style, the candies will match the precocious six year olds color palette of choice: pink, black, and white!
The Plaza Santa will also make his debut appearance at The Plaza the same day. This year is particularly special, as the hotel will be one of only two locations in the city where Santa will sit on his perch (or sleigh). He will be ho-ho-hoing at the legendary hotel Wednesdays through Saturdays, 12:00pm until 7:00pm, and Sundays from 12:00pm until 6:00pm. Extended hours and daily seatings will commence December 10 through Christmas Eve, when The Plaza Santa will be spreading holiday cheer from 12:00pm until 7:00pm. The Plaza Santa can be found on the Concourse Level in The Plaza Food Hall, conveniently across from the Eloise Rawther Sweet Shop. Photo packages range from à la carte photos (starting at $29) to the Santas Plaza Sampler (starting at $99), which includes Plaza postcards, Christmas cards, a calendar, and additional prints.
Guests young and old can skidder on over to The Plaza for the last Eloise events of the year, hosted by the Eloise at The Plaza Shop. Details of Chanukah Arts & Crafts, Rawther Fancy Tea with Santa, Gingerbread House Decorating, and Cookies for Santa are included below as well.
