Looking for some glitz in the darkness of winter? Couldn't find a sitter for New Year's Eve? Slip away for an evening of glamor and intrigue at 123 Speakeasy! Join your friends or take your date to our 2nd Annual Masquerade Ball. Dance lesson begins at 5:30pm, door prizes will be drawn throughout the evening.
Dress Code: This is a formal event; guests should get creative with our “Black and Gold” theme. While tuxedos are not required, we always encourage them! This is a fun opportunity to get as glitzed-and-glammed-out as your wildest dreams--have a dress with a train? Want to sport that hat or fur coat that might seem over-the-top elsewhere? Need an excuse to grab that sequin flapper dress you’ve been eyeing on Amazon? Tonight is your night to shine! Do try to stay in black and gold colors (with white accents if necessary)--it will make for amazing pictures, trust us.
If you're looking for mask ideas, we recommend a hands-free mask (as opposed to one you hold up with a stick) so you can dance while looking mysterious ;)
Minimum Age: The masquerade is held within a speakeasy bar/restaurant. All attendees must be above 21 in age to enter. IDs will be checked at the door. (Keyholders may skip the line as usual.)
Check-In Policy: Guests should arrive between 5:00 and 5:30pm. Later arrival may result in guests missing the dance lesson or tasty food!
Over-serving: We reserve the right to refuse service to any guests that are visibly intoxicated or disruptive. If asked to leave, guests will not receive a refund.
What to expect: Our “Black and Gold” themed masquerade takes place inside 123 Speakeasy. If you have not visited the speakeasy before, we encourage you to drop by to check us out! The interior is filled with +100 year old antiques, crystal chandeliers, glowing candlelight, and Depression-Era glasses and serving ware. While we do not usually have a dress code, for this event, we invite our guests to wear their fanciest! As part of your package, we’ll be kicking off the evening with a dance lesson so you can show off your outfits and masks on the dance floor!
The masquerade takes place throughout the speakeasy, including the Gold and Peacock Lounges. You choose the degree to which you participate in the dancing and festivities; you always have the option of lounging with friends, nibbling at dinner and elegantly sipping out of our cut crystal glassware.
The dance lesson will begin at 5:30pm, but guests are free to lounge, mingle, or explore our photo booth (with props!) during that time. Later in the evening we’ll be raffling off prizes worth $70 - $200 including cocktail kits, gift certificates, and tickets to local art and entertainment events.
