This past weekend, the The Epicurean Society of the Senses, hosted by Adam Aleksander and Brian Quinn, held a unique dinig experience complete with a make-shift 1950s prom night!
The Epicurean Society of the Senses is “a new dining society blending underground supper clubs and themed events to create unprecedented dining experiences,” and this special prom night was designed to give adults the chance to relive their prom the way it should have been (plus an open bar, for the adult version).
Decked out with many comedic elements and set in a former school in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, it mimicked our high school days to the T, from getting picked up in a yellow school bus to awkward line dancing and excessive photo-taking.
Everyone made their way into the school’s gymnasium for cocktail hour created by mixologist Cervantes, of famed Little Branch and Milk & Honey, and got their portrait taken in a 1950s photo booth by photographic artist, Ventiko.
But wait! Included in the evening was a cafeteria-themed feast created by Nick Suarez and Theodore Peck of The Food Experiments, served by women of the adjoining church. The Harlem James Gang performed and the rest of the evening was DJed by DJ Matt Mikas, with a few slow dance hits thrown in.
Just like your own prom night, it was an unforgettable evening! Or maybe it was forgettable, depending on how many cocktails you had… If you’ve already forgotten, or if you missed the event, check out the gallery below with photos by Ventiko, or check out even more via Metromix!
