For generations of savvy Houstonians have made the December pilgrimage to New York City not only for decorations, but also for the elegant party music scene at the iconic Cafe Carlyle. Think champagne, caviar and antics. The pandemic may have put coffee on ice last year and this year, but Tilman Fertitta brings the experience to Houston with ‘Steve Tyrell, Home for the Holidays’ evenings in an intimate dining setting in the one of the private rooms of his Post Oak Hotel.
I’m so ready to pull out my party dresses, dress my husband in a dark suit, and live our best life one of five nights (or maybe Sunday brunch) that Tyrell from Grammy Award-winning Houston will resume from its 15-year run (to continue after New York’s COVID restrictions, of course) at Café Carlyle.
Houston December 14-18 options include a three-course dinner and show, late-night lounge and Sunday brunch, each with Tyrell and his combo playing his favorite Great American Songbook and familiar holiday tunes. .
This is a rare opportunity to experience at the Post Oak Hotel the holiday magic that permeates the Carlyle Cafe each season with talent spanning more than five decades in the music industry as a singer, producer and music supervisor. .
Fans will remember Steve Tyrell’s performances in Father of the bride and Father of the Bride II. He has a dozen American Standards albums that have Top 5 status on Billboard’s Jazz charts while his debut album, A new standard, was among the best-selling jazz albums for over five years. Tyrell released his 13th album, Shades of Ray, his tribute to Ray Charles, earlier this month.
From December 14 to 18, dinner reservations are available between 6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m., with the show starting at 8:30 p.m. Tickets start at $ 200 per person, taxes and fees not included.
On December 17-18, Steve Tyrell and his friends will perform for a seat from 10:15 p.m. with the live performance at 10:45 p.m. The price of $ 135, before taxes and fees, includes festive cocktails and handmade appetizers. Sunday brunch with a holiday-inspired menu has seating from 11:30 am with the live show at 12:30 pm. Tickets start at $ 175, taxes and fees not included.
