Safety first! Read about our special Holiday Preperations note below

A note from my friend, and one of the owners of Pangea, regarding our Covid safety protocols and revisions made so that we can enjoy a beautiful New Year's Eve together.


Dear Friends,

It is with sincere gratitude and concern for our mutual welfare that Pangea plans to celebrate a special, reduced capacity New Year’s Eve headlined by the epitome of grace and good cheer, New York’s beloved Sidney Myer.  The evening, which was previously announced with an early and late show, will feature one show only, at 10:30pm, with an extended pre-show dinner portion starting at 8:00pm. [Additional dinner music provided by Tracy Stark.] This modification will allow for distance-safe dinner seating in both the Front Dining Room and Cabaret Room, and comfortable spaced seating in the Cabaret Room for the 10:30pm show. 

The special New Year’s Eve edition of “Sidney’s Back at Pangea,” which sold out its four-week run in November, features Tracy Stark on piano.  The singer-comedienne Gretchen Reinhagen will serve as the evening’s emcee, [and will perform a short set of her own, following Sidney, to get us into our final countdown.] Tickets are just $50, and food and drink are à-la-carte with a $75 minimum. 

All of us at Pangea -- including Sidney, Gretchen and Tracy- are committed to accommodating our guests and friends in safety. And we know that enjoying the thoughtful, enriching artistry of our community is not just a luxury; it is, as we know, a necessity in these dark and stressful times. Arnoldo and I want to do everything we can to be of service, to keep our doors open and to treat our artists and our audience members with utmost respect. 

Since reopening the restaurant in the Spring and resuming ticketed shows in June, Pangea has followed strict COVID protocols for the safety and comfort of its guests, requiring proof of vaccination from the beginning. 

The current policy specifies that mask wearing is required to enter the restaurant, at your table when not eating or drinking, and when moving away from your table (including when using rest rooms). Service staff wears masks at all times. 

In addition to extra spacing in the show room we combine fresh air from the outside with strong air distribution from our new dedicated HVAC system, with UV purification. 

With love, 
Stephen Shanaghan
