CEO’S from around the world disguised as Dapper Dans and their Molls, gathered in secret at our vintage Loft venue for a night of cocktails, fine dining and dancing. A true Chicago-style Speak-Easy themed corporate dinner for 150 at Loft on Lake!
This event was so secret, that the VIP guests, dolled up in flapper gowns and double breasted suits complete with spats, were only allowed past the bouncers with Tommy guns if they uttered the correct password! Art of Imagination took Event Production to a new level, by transforming our contemporary urban loft back to a 1920′s era gangster hide-away. The look was complete with vintage props and decor, backdrops of Old Chicago, walls of shimmery red fabrics and mood lighting. We loved seeing the bold red and black color combination – it really popped against our exposed brick walls.
No detail was spared or overlooked for this corporate event – even “Some Like it Hot” was silently playing in the background as the guests dined! Stitley Entertainment provided the swanky live band with a guest appearance by the Blues Brothers! Dinner was delish, and service impeccable, care of the Limelight Catering.
Our entry hallway was lined with vibrant red fabric, and a stunning display made of black fabric was elegantly swagged open, as entry into the main space.
Art of Imagination partnered with Cattleya Floral Design, who created the stunning Ostrich feather centerpieces. Art of Imagination even brought in these mobsters to greet the guests.
Limelight Catering provided impeccable service and food for the evening.
Each chair was draped with either a boa for the ladies, or a fedora for the gents. We have never seen so many feather boas!
This stunning black bar with a candlelit mirror backdrop was a great addition.
The bar was, of course, well stocked. The bartenders mixed old fashioned, authentic period drinks for the guests.
Art of Imagination’s attention to detail really shone in this event – we loved the props they brought in that really completed the look of the event.
The Stitely Band really put on a show!
There were no wet blankets at our gin joint and a SWELL time was had by all!
