Arts & Culture

Creativity is in our DNA. Hyam Plutzik, father of The Betsy’s owner, Jonathan, was a three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist in poetry, and continues to inspire our love for literature today. We have hosted more than 800 artists in our Writers’ Room who often host meet & greets and readings in the Library. The Plutzik family personally curates the visual art exhibits with emphasis on photography from emerging and established artists. (Insider-tip – check our calendar for monthly art docent tours.) Where art and literature end, music begins - take in nightly live jazz, chamber music performances and curated playlists that set the tone throughout your stay. The Betsy serves as the community’s artistic oasis, it’s the perfect place for both cocktails and culture.
