It's the longest day of the year, and we're celebrating the sun with an evening of ritualistic partying, featuring food and drink from dozens of the city’s best restaurants and bars. Enter a mystical world courtesy of Event Architect Thommy Conroy, and commune with other-worldly beings on the dance floor, as Beauty Slap brings the funk with their signature brass-infused sound. DJ Samuel Andres will keep the party going as we dance the night away with fairies, druids and centaurs! And if you dare to leave the revelry of the main floor behind, don’t forget our lower level, where Bad Custer will rock out in our magical underground.
