truly a midsummer night’s dream

Last night, a lucky few–hundred–headed to Chelsea to celebrate the Grand Opening of Sant and Vikram Chatwal‘s Dream Downtown hotel and its venues like the PH-D Rooftop Lounge and Marble Lane Restaurant.

Swarms of people fought their way through the crowd to try to convince the door men to let them through–some dreams came true, some didn’t.

Inside, a DJ set by Solange Knowles, Sam Ronson, Paul Sevigny, Harley Viera-Newton and Nervo provided the tunes while guests such as Eve, Charlotte Ronson, Stavros Niarchos, Vito Schnabel, Jessica White, Kimora Lee Simmons, Tika Sumpter and fellow Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford, Sanaa Lathan, Maxwell, Eric Eisner & Stacey Bendet, Ann Dexter-Jones, Amanda Setton, Greg Bello and Marcus Schenkenberg ate up hors d’oeuvres by Chef’s Ralph Scamardella and Manuel Trevino.

The night was like an upscale circus, complete with Gogo dancers, a pool full of mermaids and human fish, stilt walker and human candles. Late night at PH-D Rooftop Lounge, Lady Gaga-esque grinder girls performed on the adjacent rooftop of the presidential suite.

Sweet dreams are made of these.
