There’s a new interactive experience in New York City that fans of the hit Netflix show Bridgerton will flock to — or anyone looking for a fun date or girl’s night out. The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience has officially opened its 10th location in Manhattan. Mediapro Manhattan Studio, an event space located at 508 West 37th Street, has been transformed into an 1800s ballroom where fans can be immersed into an environment that mimics the series’ Regency period.

Coming to NYC

The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience is presented by Shondaland, Netflix, and Fever, the ticketing app. The immersive experience began as a pop-up in various cities across the country and even in Montreal and Toronto beginning last year. Previous locations included Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.

On April 27th, The Queen’s Ball officially opened in New York City after a long month’s work of setting up and preparation. Isis Arias of Netflix’s Live Experiences spoke to The Hoboken Girl exclusively about bringing the magical world of Bridgerton to life at an exclusive press preview held the day before opening.

“New York is the best city in the world I think, from my personal opinion, but also I think as a market, it’s such a rich cultural entertainment hub for us to bring immersive entertainment and bring the Bridgerton Ball in this really interactive environment,” Isis shared. “We’re really excited to bring New Yorkers out.”

So, what can fans expect? Isis spilled, “You are really being transported into the world of 1800 Regency England. You’re here for a ball. There are sirs and madams who are here to greet you and teach you how to dance. We have a portrait studio. We have amazing cocktails and we even have things for you to take away — if you’d like to bring a tiara or some gloves or a fan home.”

A Bridgerton Experience

As the Netflix spokesperson explained, there are actors dressed in period costumes who are there to assist guests and even trained dancers who put on theatrical and acrobatic performances and teach group ballroom dances during the experience. The website teases: “Who knows…you may catch the Queen’s eye and be crowned Diamond of the evening.”

In addition, there are plenty of photo opportunities, including the chance to dress up and play with props from the 1800s and visit the royal portraits studio where you can email and print a portrait to hang up on your wall.

During the 90-minute experience, guests also have the chance to taste delicious treats and Bridgerton-inspired specialty cocktails like the Whistledown + Dirty and Lady Bridgerton. The drinks are provided by the experience’s partners: Archer Rose Wine, Sipsmith Gin, and On The Rocks Cocktails.

By the end of the interactive walking tour, guests can take away some goodies from the experience’s gift shop. There are girly products like makeup, jewelry, crowns, as well as a variety of Queen’s Cake tea, tea bundles, as well as t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Grab Your Tickets

If you’ve never watched an episode of Bridgerton, it doesn’t mean you won’t be able to experience The Queen’s Ball. “You can absolutely come whether you’ve watched the show or not. It’s truly beautiful, especially with the live music. You’re watching a romantic love story come to life right in front of you and you’re a part of the story,” Isis told HG.

“It’s really a unique night out and I think it’s an experience that you won’t find anywhere else. Whether it’s for date night, girl’s night, mom’s night out, or birthdays! We’ve hosted a ton of proposals so it does get a little romantic here, but definitely bring groups of friends or come with one person.”
