Event description

Description

  • On January 28,1393; Charles VI of France put together the first masquerade ball in the world. Since then the Masquerade Ball began as part of Europe’s carnival season. Less high society and more cirque du célébration, villagers would gather in masks and costumes to take part in elaborate pageants and glamorous processions. Quickly spreading across France like wildfire, some of the most notorious balls of the day would be held to celebrate Royal Entries: the grand occasion of welcoming kings and queens into their cities.

    In commemorating this occasion, you are cordially invited to join us celebrate this French tradition on a French soil. The night is filled with French food, open bar, dancing and many more!


    DRESS CODE : We expect gentlemen to range from creative tie to tuxedo, while ladies range from stylish cocktail attire to flax/flapper dresses and gowns.

    SALSA DANCING : At the later part of the night we will give a Salsa lesson and decorate the night with French Latino hits.
