Featuring familiar favorites, the crowd was on their feet as the group led an electric performance through the space, on the bar and on the tables. To culminate the evening, Kate Nash took to the tables for a DJ set which lasted into the early morning.
Specialty cocktails by Grey Goose flowed throughout the evening, including the House favourite Eastern Standard, as well as Le Melon Mule and the classic Orange Collins, created exclusively for the party.

A unique distillation process brings out the naturally superior characteristics of these ingredients. From field-to-bottle, the expertise of GREY GOOSE Maître de Chai (Cellar Master), François Thibault, ensures an unparalleled smoothness and exceptional taste to the connoisseur palate.
