An intoxicating evening behind the violet curtain with eighth blackbird!

Please join us for a speakeasy type of evening of risky music and even riskier cocktails as famed Violet Hour mixologists create custom concoctions based on eighth blackbird’s intoxicating performances.

We’ll start the evening with eighth blackbird performing mouth-watering musical aperitifs by Philip Glass, Timo Andres, Nico Muhly, Mayke Nas, and Andy Akiho at the Heaven Gallery.

Afterwards we’ll conspire underneath the crystal chandeliers and velvet curtains of the resplendent Violet Hour, where award winning mixologists will beguile and seduce us with five custom concoctions. Delectable hors d’oeuvres will also be served and attendees will have the opportunity to bid on exclusive items at the silent auction.
