Beginning tonight, Bond 45, now located next to Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, will host an after-party following every performance of Summer: The Donna Summer Musical. The celebration will continue downstairs at Bond 45 with dancing to Donna Summer's greatest hits and a themed menu of signature Summer cocktails including "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls," and "Last Dance."

"We are thrilled to welcome the cast and audiences of Summer to continue the celebration next door at Bond 45 putting our own special spin on the party," said Shelly Fireman, owner of Bond 45 and president of Fireman Hospitality Group, "We are so thankful to have been embraced so warmly by the Broadway community in our new location, from producers to casts to crew members to theater audiences from around the world. Hosting the Summer after-party is exactly the kind of fun and community we hope to be bringing to the heart of the theater district."

Directed by Des McAnuff, Summer opened on April 23 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The biomusical features a book by Colman Domingo, Robert Cary, and Des McAnuff, with songs by Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, Paul Jabara, and others.
