A Carnivorous Affair

| June 4, 2014 | Parties

The Party
The buzz had been building for months, and the launch party lived up to the hype! Billed as a sexy steakhouse, STK offered a glimpse into the city’s newest nightlife hot spot with an opening night party that featured bite-size samples of the resto’s signature dishes, specialty cocktails, a GIF-digital booth and a lively dance floor with turntables by DJ Dirty Hands and DJ Martial.

The People
The sleek space included a VIP area where the city’s high-profile partiers— including entrepreneur Mark Ein, celebrity hairstylist Johnny Wright and former Obama body man Reggie Love—could mix and mingle while surveying the scene. Love, Destination DC CEO Elliott Ferguson and Events DC CEO Greg O’Dell (who told us he eats at the steakhouse when he’s on business in other STK cities) were spotted chatting it up early in the evening.

Best in Show
The line for the party wrapped around the restaurant until late in the night, while revelers inside—who stayed well past midnight—watched bongo drummer Robert Powell and sipped red, white and sparkling wine in honor of the nation’s capital location. -Photos by Tony Powell and Daniel Swartz
