About The Event

An exclusive and limited New Year's Eve gathering in classic 1920s style for the 2020's. Proper attire required.

The evening's proceedings include a live jazz ensemble, hand-passed hors d'oeuvres, a champagne toast and classic themed cocktails - with rare selections from our extensive whiskey collection.

Specialty Cocktail Menu:

  • The Lumiérè: Martin Miller Westbourne Strength Gin, Chartreuse, St. Germain. The Lumiérè is a variation of The Last Word, a cocktail created at the Detroit Athletic Club during prohibition to tame the era's notorious, illegal bathtub gin. This variation was created at the Nitehawk Cinema, inspired by the 1930s French movie, "Hugo." Fun fact: the colour "Chartreuse," is named for the liquor, not vice versa.
  • The Federale: Dahlia Blue Agave Tequila, sweet vermouth, bitters. Created around the beginning of the 20th Century and named for the "Distrito Federale" in Mexico City. Sometimes called the "Tequila Manhattan," this cocktail actually predates the Manhattan
  • The Ramos Gin Fizz: Martin Miller Westbourne Strength Gin, lime juice, egg white, simple syrup, touch of cream, seltzer. Named for Henry Charles Ramos, bartender at The Imperial Cabinet Saloon in New Orleans in 1888.
  • The Stinger: Armagnac St Vivant, creme de menthe. The creation of this drink is somewhat murky, but was made famous by Reginald Vanderbilt (yes, THOSE Vanderbilts,) in the 1920s. James Bond drank them in the novel, "Diamonds Are Forever," (not that shaken vodka nonsense that never appeared in the books.)
  • The Highball: Toki Japanese Whisky, ginger ale. The origin and spirits used in the first Highballs are unclear. The name itself comes from the steam gauge on a locomotive: when the ball floated to the top of the gauge, the train was said to be "highballing." Today, the "haiboru (ハイボール)" is extremely popular in Japan, even being sold in cans from street vending machines.
