Now is the time to take everything blue, white, and red out of your wardrobe. The traditional Bastille Day Ball, organized by the Committee of French speaking societies in New York, returns this July 13.
Just like how you don’t change an award-winning recipe, you don’t change a party that’s already a smash hit. Buffet-bar, live music, and a raffle to win two roundtrip tickets between New York and Paris on Air France—no one will be bored at Club 404. On the music side, count on the jazz singer Chloé Perrier, the group French Heart Jazz Band, and the DJ Olivier Meiji to heat up the dance floor. The Bastille Day Ball has been happening since 1924.
Price: $30 for general entrance (with hors d’oeuvres and the cash bar), or $120 for VIP entrance (with red carpet, gourmet buffet, and open bar from 6-10pm)
