Speakeasy Soiree

| June 22, 2015 | Parties National

Stylish steakhouse STK feted one amazing year with a 1920s-themed bash.

It was a glamorous evening at STK as the sleek restaurant and lounge celebrated one year in DC with a speakeasy- style soiree, featuring flowing Champagne, flirty flappers and old-school cigarette girls.

The red-carpet affair brought out the restaurant’s fabulous fans who toasted the milestone birthday with the night’s featured cocktails, the Cucumber Stiletto and the Hasta Manana, and nibbled on STK staples like grilled pepper- crusted sirloin, popcorn rock shrimp and fresh crabcakes, all while vibing to the soundtrack of NYC’s DJ Martial and saxophonist Kareem Wilkes.

Attendees also got into the evening’s theme with complimentary styling and makeup touch-ups with a vintage flair courtesy of on-site stylists from Pure, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa. One thing not so 1920s was the GIF photo booth! Guests got glam with temporary tattoos and fun photo props before posing for multiple pics that were then transformed into GIFs—and flashed onto a big screen for other partygoers to share in the birthday fun. We already can’t wait for STK’s second anniversary! -Photos by Daniel Swartz
