Friday, November 30- Saturday, December 1
The Great Gatsby Party
Capitale, 130 Bowery, New York, New York 10013
9PM-2AM
Since December 2015, The Great Gatsby Party® has transformed the gilded halls of New York City’s Capitale. Every year, more than 3,000 guests turn up for the sold-out event, outfitted in the fashion of the Roaring Twenties–flapper dresses, silk gloves, tuxedos, top hats–to revel the night away under swinging aerialists and the glitter of disco balls. This year, by popular demand, the Great Gatsby Party returns for the fourth time, for a two-night affair of the cocktails, fanfare, and decadence that so defined Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel.

2018’s Great Gatsby Party will take place on the evenings of November 30th and December 1st from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Capitale will once again play host to the event, bedecked in the elegant grandeur of the era. Similarly inspired by the 1920s, entertainment is scheduled throughout the night, with live music, theatrical acts, dancers, contortionists, showgirls, stilt walkers, and more.

The evening is sure to be a celebration of all the senses, with champagne flowing, spirits well-stocked, and an array of sweet treats specially prepared by a local bakery. So get ready to put on your black tie finery and hit the town with us. Everyone will be talking about this Great Gatsby Party well after the lights come up.
