Gutes Hosts Ace of Hearts Singles Party
Ahead of the most romantic night of the year, Gutes, the downtown darling behind Byline and The Drunken Canal, hosted an invite-only singles event, The Gutes List: Ace of Hearts. The party on Feb. 7 seemed to pull off the impossible — unearthing an even number of cute, eligible, and (hopefully) emotionally available bachelors and bachelorettes that weren't all from one friend group or scene. At first, it took a little while for a room full of young people used to dating apps to actually approach each other in person, but then some guy balanced a chair on his chin and soon, the whole room was chatting. Jackson Walker Lewis set the mood playing classic house music as guests mingled. The true star of the night, however, was an elusive attendee who spent her night sitting on the couch and asking potential love interests to join her in writing in her journal. Hosted at the Ace Hotel New York, there were $99 room specials available for those who hit it off, although some people admitted to actively snagging the deal just so they could enjoy the hotel alone.
