The 9th Annual Jazz Age Lawn PartyGovernors Island (Governors Island, New York, NY) Map it $35
An annual good time of dance to the times of Gatsby, the Jazz Age Lawn Party always features participants in amazing outfits burning it up on the dance floor. Headed by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, this party reminds us why we love movies like Midnight in Paris, The Great Gatsby and The Artist. And Governor's Island proves an excellent retreat to take the metropolitan dweller out of his natural habitat to a decadence of the 1920's. A fun, relaxing time under the sun to drink cocktails and transport yourself to a different time. After you cut a rug head over to the newly opened hammock grove, to lounge the day away.
Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra invite you to the beloved Jazz Age Lawn Party
on Governors Island. Now in its ninth year, the event has become the quintessential outdoor
celebration of the Jazz Age and its living legacy.
This trip through time begins on a breezy ferry with views of Lady Liberty en route to NYC’s
local treasure, Governors Island. Once ashore, a sprawling green awaits, nestled under a canopy
of century-old trees, caressed by fresh sea air, surrounded by historic architecture - a dream of
the 1920s hidden right in the heart of New York Harbor.
For the sixth consecutive year, St-Germain Elderﬂower Liqueur will be our signature spirit
partner. In addition, we are pleased to announce that legendary mixtress Julie Reiner (co-owner
of Clover Club, Flatiron Lounge and Pegu Club) and Andy Seymour (one of America’s top
mixologists) join the Lawn Party family to lend their magic to our refreshing summer cocktail

fresco feast on the Lawn.
