Gatsby-Style NYC New Year's Eve Party

Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Ring in 2020 in true 20s style with an unprecedented New Year’s Eve celebration! The Truitt House is welcoming the new year with guest chefs, retro-chic decor, and a live 20s jazz band! Imagine... stepping back in time to the glamour and opulence of the Roaring 20s within the elegant 1909 mansion that is The Truitt House. The lavish decorations by Jerry Freeman will transport you back to the century prior at the height of The Jazz Age. Period dress is highly encouraged. There will be a diverse offering of food by local chefs, including acclaimed Chef Harper Bradshaw of Harper's Table and one of Suffolk's newest chefs, Chef General Lewis of The General Public. Food courses will change throughout the evening as you quench your thirst at the open bar. Live music will be provided by the phenomenal Gatsby Gang Jazz Band.
