The tempo of the city had changed sharply.
The buildings were higher.
The parties were bigger.
The morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper.
The restlessness approached hysteria.
... Who is this Gatsby?

Mr. Gatsby formally invites you to the Merchants Exchange Club for a Speakeasy Casino Affair.

During the time of Prohibition, the Speakeasy was born and all levels of society began to party behind closed doors. Join us as we take you back to the Roaring 20's and re-create the feeling of days gone by. Taking place at the brand new Merchants Exchange Club, this event will feature beautiful Art Deco decor, specialty cocktails, music, dancing and a Speakeasy Casino. Feel free to dress in theme for this event. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

The early portion of the evening will feature traditional swing, jazz, and 1920's themed dance music. Later the night will take a turn bringing this 1920's themed event to 2012 with a DJ playing to hits from this era. The event will also feature other 1920's period decor and themes, including a photobooth with props and more.
Music by DJ CAMS and DJ ZAQ.
