Monte Carlo casino area
The casino was fully fitted out with roulette, blackjack and poker tables, each hosted by a professional croupier.
'Lobby' serves as coat-check
Guests arrived into a large replica hotel lobby space alive with the aristocratic ambiance of its era.
The area featured a 65-foot reception desk and genuine antique props. It was manned by staff in period costumes, who managed the 5,000 items for the cloakroom.
Guests enter the Lucky Bar speakeasy
If guests were "lucky" enough to get past security, they entered a bar with dark LED mood lighting, low-slung leather furniture, two pool tables, and even a jail cell in case patrons stepped out of line!

Welcome to the 'Grand Google Hotel'
Once guests entered the venue, they were brought into a space that gave the illusion of being transported back outside to the driveway of a glamorous five-star hotel.
Foliage and trees lined the “driveway” with a 12-foot working fountain acting as a centerpiece, along with a 1930s Bentley parked beside the entrance by the concierge.
Feeling lucky? The Lucky Bar speakeasy
A highlight: Lucky’s Milk Bar--a Prohibition-style bar complete with undercover security at the front entrance.
The 'hotel' façade
A 1:1 scale hotel façade was built along with a portico, complete with plexiglass covering.

Gangster images at the Lucky Bar
Backdrops with images of gangsters hung behind the bar to give Lucky’s an authentic feel.
Another area off the main ballroom was the Electric Cabaret.
This bar was filled with luxe red velvet booth-style seating, stage acts and amazing musicians.
A saxophone soloist accompanied by a DJ kept the crowd dancing long into the night, until the stage was opened up for the Electric Karaoke Cabaret.
This gave guests the chance to be in the spotlight; with a live band supporting their vocals. Illusion acts wandered through the crowd to give the area another element of entertainment, as well as silent movies being played on large screens each side of the stage.
Three-tier main stage
The centerpiece of the Grand Ballroom was the three-tier main stage, where a variety of acts performed throughout the night.
The Onyx Girls performed a full theatrical show in the style of the 1930s.
The entertainment on the main stage built up throughout the evening, ending with a crescendo as a 10-piece brass band graced the stage.

Photo opp for guests
An oversized photo frame acted as the perfect photo opportunity.
Guests could sit behind the frame and hold up famous quotes from the 1930s, including the party tagline “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody.”
