Sophisticated and Upscale—Party 701: Swingin’ Speakeasy is Your Ticket to 1920s Fun For a Cause

Alright you guys and dolls—now’s your chance to breakout your best flapper dresses and fedoras and join the Long Center for a night of high-stakes philanthropic fun!

The Long Center is bringing all you cool cats back to the Roaring ’20s for Party 701: Swingin’ Speakeasy. This sophisticated, upscale night of 1920s-style fun all goes down October 13 with all proceeds benefiting the future generation of young performers through the Long Center’s Education and Outreach programs.

Individual tickets are already available, but for those of you who know your onions, Early Birds can cash-in on a special discount ticket until October 1st.

This swanky affair is your opportunity to revel in all the nonstop excitement of the Golden Age by living your wildest Gatsby dreams, and feeling good while doing it. With music you’ll want to do the Charleston to, as well as authentic cocktail specials from the speakeasy era, Party 701 is your one-night escape for fancy frills with an Art Deco twist.

  • Test out Lady Luck at the Gambling Tables—blackjack, craps or roulette. Win big and trade your chips in for amazing prizes. You’ll even get $5,000 in chips with your ticket.
  • Visit the Tasting Grove and sample the high-flying specials of some of Austin’s top restaurants, featuring a Negroni machine.
  • Keep on top of all your Silent Auction bids, straight from your smartphone at your gaming table or the Speakeasy Lounge.
  • Feel at-home in your snazzy get-up with a Cigar Rolling station, provided by Bobalu Cigar Company.

But what does admission to this exclusive affair ‘getcha? You’ll be privy to an open bar, including libations and specialty cocktails provided by William Grant & Sons, access to hand-rolled cigars and the Speakeasy Lounge, and those $5,000 in gambling chips to put toward winning top-notch prizes—plus so much more. Want to join the high rollers? Party 701 Sponsorships are also available, beginning at $500.

Attire is business casual for you straight-from-work folks, or you can don your best spats and hats for that 1920s feel. A limited amount of era-appropriate accessories will be available as well.

All proceeds from Party 701 benefit the eight education and community programs offered at the Long Center. Each year, more than 80,000 Austin area youth and special needs groups attend shows, learn about the performing arts and participate in interactive education experiences that enrich the overall quality of their lives and help them BeLong.

Party 701 only happens once a year, so join in the fun while making a difference in our community—in West Egg style!
