The historic Minton's Restaurant in Harlem served as a special welcoming home for one of Harlem's most precious gems last week as they helped celebrate Tenor Noah Stewart as he treated celebrity guest and tastemakers to a live performance presented by Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege.
The renowned artist whose musical development started in Harlem where he studied classical music at the Harlem School of the Arts took a break from touring and returned home where he wowed the crowd with an intimate live performance that was so impressive it garnered a standing ovation and encore performance!
In attendance was Actress Vanessa Bell Calloway, TV personality Star Jones and Opera Diva Jessye Norman just to name a few.
Guest spent the evening enjoying specialty Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege cocktails while dining on delicious Hor d'oeures. Our favorite cocktails of the evening were the "Perfect Pitch Punch" a sweet treat which consisted of Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege, Apricot Nectar, Blood Orange, Lemon Pomegranate, Old Fashioned Bitters and Chandon Brut and in at a close second was the also delicious and crisp Hennessy Privilege Sweet Tenor Sidecar; the concoction made with Hennessy Privilege, Grand Marnier Raspberry Peach, Raspberry Puree and Lemon, seemingly one of the most popular cocktails served all night amongst guest, including us.
A great time was had by all. A perfect summer night uptown filled with fantastic music and more than satisfying spirits!
