Sotheby’s New York is one of the world’s leading auction houses. It has an entire building of gallery space and auction rooms with a simple charming restaurant upstairs.
Auction exhibitions are museum-quality and free. The best work tends to be offered in the evening auctions. You can attend most auctions, but some are invitation only. Register to bid.
Sotheby’s was the first auction house to fold its Latin American art auction into its general auctions, thereby increasing valuations.
The May and November art auctions are pillars of New York City’s art world. During these months, the entire building becomes a huge exhibition.
It’s a great place for a date.
