• Client and Vendor Management
Eighth Blackbird is a Grammy Award-winning contemporary music sextet founded in 1996 that is known for their performing style often playing from memory with theatrical flair.
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 six 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.
The Violet Hour Description
The Violet Hour serves artisanal cocktails in the heart of Wicker Park. Rooted in pre-prohibition style libations, the James Beard Award-winning bar program features a seasonally rotating cocktail list, as well as an extensive selection of approachable and sought-after spirits.
The Violet Hour’s facade features an ever-changing mural with a singular light bulb designating its entrance. Divided into three salons, the interior features high-backed blue leather chairs clustered around small white tables that are illuminated by candlelight. A marble bar spans the length of the room and features cornflower-blue walls, white crown molding, crystal chandeliers and hardwood floors, giving the space an elegant feel.
