Yelp’s Gatsby Bash at Hotel Congress

Last week, Copper Hall at Hotel Congress transformed into a roaring Gatsby scene just for Tucson Yelp Elites and their guests. Yelper's donned their most glamourous 1920s attire– fellas in suits and hats, dames in gowns, feathers and pearls. From the petite bites to the bevy of classic cocktails, entertainment and styling, this party had no shortage of glitz, glamour and decadence.  Interior"F. Scott Fitzgerald – we did you PROUD!" exclaims Elite Yelper Kathy N. "Walking in to the Copper Room was like being transported back to an elegant speakeasy. Arizona Party Rental completely transformed the room." Copper Hall's crafty mixologist and manager, Billy, shook things up with classic cocktails– The East End Sazerac, The Don Ricardo Bi-Plane, The Dillinger Side Car and Wet Martini. "He pumped out those martinis like there was no tomorrow, was super friendly and funny while doing it!" yelps Christina R

And the food? "Magnificent," "Amazing," "Phenomenal," as described by Yelpers. Decadent hors d'ouvres were bountiful from Shrimp Cocktail, to mini Beef Wellington, Deviled Eggs, Stuffed Mushrooms, Crostini, tiny Tarts with figs, pecans, brie and more! Plus a line-up of sweets that left us wanting more…Dawn K reports "the desserts were a highlight with eclairs and cream puffs; which were light, fresh and not overly heavy or sweet." Food

Between music, cards, and hooch, the joint was jumping all night. Yelpers were dressed to the nines. No detail was too small to be overlooked." And the staff? They were "ultimate professionals!"EntertainmentAn enormous thank you to the team at Hotel Congress & Cup Cafe for showing us a roaring good time, Billy for tending bar like a rockstar, DJ Josh, Ace Casino Equipment and Arizona Party Rental for transforming Copper Hall into a magical, sparkly getaway that Gatsby himself would be proud of.
