Saturday May 10th @ 3pm Hibernia Bar NYC and our new location the Winslow NYC will be streaming the Eurovision Song Contest live.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2014 will be the 59th annual Eurovision Song Contest.
The contest will take place at the B&W Hallerne, in Copenhagen, Denmark, following Emmelie de Forest‘s win in the 2013 contest with the song “Only Teardrops“. The shows will be presented by Lise Rønne, Nikolaj Koppel and Pilou Asbæk. For the first time in the history of the contest, the trio of presenters will comprise of two men and one woman. This will be the third time that Denmark will host the contest, the previous time being in 2001.
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 and now the Winslow 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.
