Avalon’s speakeasy atmosphere takes you back to to the era of “The Great Gatsby” notorious for gangsters, molls, and flappers. When your guests arrive, have them give “the password” through the peephole at the front door in order to enter the party. You can send the password with the party invitation. Not only offer a coat check with receipt, but also a gun check. For added atmosphere, a high energy swing band sets the right mood with upbeat music. Scroll down for a video demo of the JJW Swing Band.

Have a few metal tubs near the front door so your guest can pick up their party accessories before joining in the fun. Have things like feather boas, gangster hats, long pearl necklaces and sequin headbands. At the entrance, beautiful flapper hostesses are ready to welcome guests and serve champagne.
