Guests also mingled through interactive elements that brought the new dining and travel benefits of the Gold Card to life. They enjoyed cocktails in an imagined airplane cabin, dined in a pop-up-version of Grand Central Oyster Bar, and enjoyed captivating views in a gold-tufted seating area on the breezy, outdoor terrace.

The American Express Gold Card Celebration

When it arrived on the scene nearly 50 years ago, the Amex Gold Card set the standard for credit cards and also brought with it a cache. Now, Amex celebrates the Card Members who set the gold standard today, embodying values such as hard work, resilience and creativity that define success.
Throughout the year, Amex will showcase creative collaborations by notable Card Members—all to celebrate the new Gold Card– including Alexander Wang (who custom designed a dress out of 500+ Amex Gold Cards); Gabrielle Hamilton, head chef of Prune (who will be providing original cocktails and menu items for the party); Cole Rise, travel photographer; and Jack Sutter, creator of TGT wallets.
