On their way in, guests stopped to have their shoes shined before posing with flapper girls. Inside, party-goers were treated to a serenade by Juno Award winning artist Divine Brown, and a spicy burlesque performance (that included a gorilla suit!).
The hotspot was equipped with the latest of interative stations, featuring Instagram, Cigars, and delicious tastes from across the city. Weslodge director of cocktails, Elan Marks, was on-site mixing custom creations for guests, including delicious concoction, the Alchemist. Learn how Elan makes it here: http://t.co/SiGOd2wS23.
