    A Great Gatsby Redesign at the Plaza

    Amping up excitement for the new film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the Plaza hotel in New York is bringing back the glitz and glamor of the Roaring ‘20s. Eighteen floors above the hustle and bustle of Fifth Avenue, Catherine Martin, the Oscar-winning production designer of the film Moulin Rouge!, led the redesign of the new Fitzgerald Suite, now named after the author and frequent Plaza patron.

    The bedroom in the Plaza's Fitzgerald Suite.

    Furnished exclusively by Restoration Hardware, the room channels the Jazz Age with dramatic art-deco detailing and period-inspired pieces. At 900 square-feet, the room probably couldn’t contain Jay Gatsby's lavish, jam-packed West Egg fêtes, but it's more than enough to welcome guests starting May 10, the same day as the movie release.

    The living area of the Plaza's Fitzgerald Suite.

    Prior to the opening of the Fitzgerald Suite, the hotel is celebrating with other luxurious, on-theme affairs. The iconic Champagne Bar has become a Moët pop-up, a space which promises to conjure images of the bacchanalian soirees at the Gatsby mansion. The Rose Club will feature a live jazz band and a signature cocktail served in a not-so-inconspicuous flask. Several dishes with a 1920’s twist will be introduced throughout the Plaza restaurants and food court. And starting April 24, the hotel is hosting an exhibition of props and costumes from the film.

    The study.
