Saturday May 18th @ 3pm Hibernia Bar NYC will be streaming the Eurovision Song Contest live. The Eurovision Song Contest 2013 will be the 58th annual Eurovision Song Contest. The contest will take place in Malmö, Sweden, following Loreen‘s win in the 2012 Contest with the song “Euphoria“. This is the fifth time that Sweden will host the Contest. The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. It was on the 24th of May, 1956, that Europe saw the first ever Eurovision Song Contest. After 56 runnings, the contest is one of the most typical European traditions and without doubt, Europe’s favorite TV show! After more than five decades featuring some 1,100 songs, the contest has become a modern classic, strongly embedded into Europe’s collective mind. “Did you know that not only stars like ABBA, Celine Dion, Cliff Richard and Julio Iglesias took part, but also dance act Riverdance thanks its fame to the Eurovision Song Contest?”. We hope to have an amazing party, we will have our now famous balloon drop, we will have a prize for the best scorecard and also the random flag picking pool. Here at Hibernia we are proud to be one of the very few to celebrate the ESC in NYC. It’s glam, it’s eurotrash and we love it, come join the party. Please remember that we have communal tables for everyone to enjoy and get involved with the show so unfortunately we cannot reserve or let people hog long tables.
