Mid-Century Soirée & Vintage Fashion Show at the Los Angeles Athletic Club

Join us for an exceptional evening at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, created in 1880 by forty prominent Angelinos; sons of pioneers, adventurers and athletes.  Meet us at the new bar 'Invention', an homage paid to the inventions of the club members over time that were found in the Club’s archives.  Stylishly redesigned by Tracy Beckmann, the private cocktail bar's surroundings and luxuriously appointed furnishings reinforce the traditions and history which have made the Club such an enduring landmark in the City of Angels.  With an expertly crafted cocktails list and a decadent menu of gourmet bites, this space will transport you back into the private-club tradition.

During this unique soiree, models will be strolling in a mid-century style fashion show.  Produced by Dave Temple of
Clever Vintage Clothing, downtown LA's renown suppliers of the most sought after vintage products to the entertainment industry (including Madmen TV show), innovative fashions from mid-century America will be presented. The 1950s were a high point in design led by the United States.  Rediscover the daytime and evening looks that helped make the US the home to fashion innovators.  Athletic outfits will also be included.  These rare outstanding vintage fashion pieces from the 1950's and 1960's will be available for sale.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to mingle and unwind at a really amazing historic location normally reserved to members only.  1950's music will be curated by Mark Governor of Honey Noir.

Each admission ticket includes one glass of wine and complimentary appetizers for the 1st hour.  Additional glasses and gourmet bites can be purchased at the bar throughout the evening.  Discover the Invention bar menu
here. Your ticket also includes a day pass at the Los Angeles Athletic Club and your chance to win a one-month membership.  All details below.

Oh by the way, don't worry about taking your car...  and take
Lyft to the Athletic Club!  Your ticket includes a $20 credit for new users.  All details below.**
