Pay tribute to one of her favorite stars, Josephine Baker! Come in your finest jazz age or vintage inspired attire (or Josephine Baker style) to celebrate in style with live hot jazz and specialty cocktails in an authentic 1920s speakeasy (Texas Guinan’s Club Intime of the 1920s is now Flute). DJ Michael Haar will be playing hot jazz between sets.
Dress code: Jacket and tie, vintage or vintage-inspired, Jazz Age, evening wear, cocktail attire and of course, seasonal. 1920s, 30s and 40s vintage or Josephine Baker attire is encouraged.
