The weekly brunch starts at 2 p.m. and is transformed from an exquisite meal of Oak Room classics to a disco nightclub soundtracked by DJ Claudius Cardinale by 4:30. Wayne was able to corner the creators of this extravagant fantasy party, Derek & Daniel Koch (pronounced "Cook" because they're from Ohio, as Wayne makes sure to clarify) to figure out how they went from mere barbacks and runners to nightlife connnoisseurs.
When asked how they came up with the concept of "Day & Night," Derek claims, "It’s a lifestyle brand, which came out of a concept. We started throwing parties at the restaurant Jour et Nuit, which literally means “Day and Night.” We ran with the concept of a Saturday-afternoon St. Tropez-style brunch. We brought it to the Plaza hotel in October." Well, props to the twins for giving New York one more much-needed weekend escape! Read the rest of the interview and Wayne's experience at the party here.
