Bacchanalian Ball: Time Lab

February 1
Time: 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Bud Light Party Centre in Soulard Market Park

General Admission: $80  

VIP Admission: $115

We have transformed the Wine, Beer and Whiskey Taste into an all-new gala worthy of the glitz and glamor of Mardi Gras and the rich history of Soulard: the Bacchanalian Ball. This party takes you on a trip through the ages, as the lighting, mood and even the drinks will evolve throughout the night as we enter each new era. You will be provided with a drink card that will serve as your time-travel passport with each era-specific cocktail crafted by the area's finest mixologists, served ONLY while the party travels through that era's party. Once we jump through time to a new era, we will be serving a new cocktail, so make sure to punch your passport and grab an era-specific drink throughout the night! 

Make sure to come dressed in your finest era-specific outfits in this all-inclusive event, the classiest time this side of the Mayor’s Mardi Gras Ball! To get the perfect look for this historical party, visit our fashionista friends at Retro 101 for your era-specific attire.

Swing into Gatsby to experience the roaring 20s, go mad in the mid-century-inspired parlor of Atomic, pop and lock in the 80s-tastic Boombox, or boldly go where no merrymaker has gone before in the neo-futuristic Beyond. Each era has its own lounge and Instagrammable photo opportunities. Throughout this mega-event we will be serving up small bites crafted by culinary experts in this mind-bending journey through time.
