    Join Us For The Centennial Celebration. Be Part of History!

    For over 100 years, The Algonquin Hotel has served the world's most prolific writers and celebrities of the stage and screen. This year it celebrates the original gathering of New York's famous wits, authors and critics who in June 1919 organized a first lunch together at the hotel for what would become known as The Round Table. Their daily lunches lasted for 10 years. The tone they set during these daily meetings set the literary style of the 1920's.
    While society columns of the time referred to them as The Algonquin Round Table, they called themselves The Vicious Circle. Most notable members were Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Alexander Woollcott and Harold Ross, who founded The New Yorker here.

    Don't Miss This Special Evening. Meet Us at The Round Table where we'll sip on "Dorothy Parker Round Table Reserve Gin" aged in Sweet Vermouth Barrels that was made especially for The Algonquin Hotel. You won't find this small batch gin anywhere but here at The Algonquin Hotel.
