20 Years Ago, Inside the Gotham’s 1999 Halloween Masquerade Ball

Gotham Steakhouse is celebrating their 20th year in 2019, so for this edition of our Throwback Thursday series we asked them to dig deep for any images they might have from their inaugural year.

These scanned shots were taken at the restaurant’s Halloween masquerade ball in 1999. We’re grateful to the Gotham/Hy’s of Canada family, who dug up and supplied the images for us.

You might recognize opening night GM (and current Hy’s of Canada COO) Megan Buckley; a handful of brokers and Canaccord types (eg. Mark Tompkins); one of the original bartenders, Jimmy Mac; the legendary Malcolm Parry; the bussing crew; Jacqui Cohen (President and CEO of Army & Navy); designer Feizal Virani; among others.

The keen-eyed will note the cigars! Gotham had a dedicated smoking section back then. What a different world…
