It’s said that real estate holiday parties are a good barometer of how the market fared over the year. Judging by Madison Realty Capital’s fête at the Standard Hotel, 2015 was off the chain.

More than 1,000 people gathered at the Top of the Standard + Le Bain for an evening of nibbles, cocktails and showboating. Variations of  “it’s unreal how much business we did this year,” were heard throughout the party, which stretched well past midnight as guests, taking advantage of the unusually warm December evening, moved upstairs to puff on cigars and smoke hookahs with the hosts, Josh Zegen, Brian Shatz and Adam Tantleff. Check out some of the highlights above.
