Only a very great lady could afford to be so whimsical and so disdainful of tradition.
The room is, in short, New York in the spring of 1934.
A bar and café and when the occasion demands a supper room with space for orchestra and dancing.
It overlooks the Plaza and is as modern — with concealed flood-lighting each table top is specially illuminateda white-and-red colour scheme, and a metal-and-ebony bar — as you could ask.
The lighting alone is worth going a considerable distance to see, and, if the ghost of Mr.
Urban ever walks, it might well drop in at the Persian Room and look things over: the chances are it would approve.
Many top performers appeared there in the forty-one years it was open.
But the original decor would not last even a decade.

Dreyfuss, writing in his 1955 book, Designing for People, said this about his redesign of the Persian Room: More than appearance is involved in remodeling and redecorating a night club.

We settled on a diagonal plan that would give every seat a good view.
The bandstand, therefore, was placed in one corner and everything fanned out from it.
Our design was contemporary, but with a Persian motif chosen because of the famous name of the room, and for this we visited museums and haunted the Iranian Institute, reading the lore of Iran and studying Persian temples and miniatures.
The Persian Room has eight enormous windows twenty feet high on two of its walls.
For these we had curtains woven of deep blue and green with metallic strands.
