Central West End Cocktail Party

June 4, 2016   •   5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

On June 4, 2016, thousands gathered in the Central West End to celebrate what many have claimed as the first cocktail party on record — held in 1917 by Mrs. Julius S. Walsh Jr. in her home at 4510 Lindell. Partygoers enjoyed live entertainment, including The Bottlesnakes, Sarah Jane & The Blue Notes and Kim Fuller featuring Galaxy New Orleans, a spirited cocktail competition and, of course, delicious drinks available for purchase from participating CWE bars and restaurants.
