In classic society, the 6 o'clock cocktail hour was a mainstay in glamourous party traditions. As Beth Gibson of More Than Old explains: "Hollywood stars such as Monroe, Bacall, Taylor, or Crawford in slinky gowns with gorgeous jewelry, their handsome escorts in tailored pinstripes, bartenders in starched tuxedo shirts making decadent drinks."

It is located at 144-146 N 3rd St and is also home to a cute kitty-kat! This event is completely free so slap on your fedora or boa and be there!
