How often have you had friends in town and wanted to show them a particularly fun night to justify all the Oakland pride you’ve always worn on your sleeve. And how many times have those same friends requested to go clubbing in San Francisco rather than hitting bars and lounges in The Town? Oakland’s funkier brand of fun is special and unique, but the bar isn’t very high when it comes to customer service, well-executed events, and classy affairs. In LA or NY you have lavish parties with hosted bars and influential clientele atop well-adorned rooftops. Despite having some beautiful venues, and a wealth of high-powered professionals, too often large upscale events are hosted on the other side of the Bay. LUX Premier Events & Concierge aims to change that.
Founded and run by Ann Thai and Anna Salazar, two dynamic Oaklanders with a host of night life and event planning experience, LUX aims to introduce Oakland to a new level of entertainment, hospitality and professionalism. LUX plans everything from glorious weddings to stress free holiday parties, and will even coordinate a stay by your company’s visiting clientele. This level of service isn’t for everyone, but in a growing hub like Oakland, it’s a need. LUX is filling that void and aims to raise the bar city wide.
On Thursday evening, the dock of The Lake Chalet Seafood Bar & Grill will be transformed as LUX and their affiliated companies host a launch party deserving of the beautiful setting. For those of you who have come to the Lake Chalet and remarked that the ambiance and view were so amazing, but the food or service were lacking, here’s your chance to experience the venue as it should always be enjoyed. Belvedere Vodka will host the bar, there will be a runway fashion show featuring local designers, Bay Area favorite DJ Hector will be spinning records, Lightworks! will have a photo booth set up, and SF Candy Bar will be hosting a candy bar. The festivities will be punctuated by a guest list of local entrepreneurs, companies, artists, and hopefully you.
That’s right. Though the event is private, LUX doesn’t want Oakland’s definition of luxury to be necessarily hog-tied by the cloistered and discriminating nature of most private events. This is luxury, Oakland style–Where business elite, politicians, organizers, and educators can all mingle in fly attire and be taken care of as they deserve to be. Think of it as a celebration and networking opportunity for you, and an audition for LUX.
Join a wide array of Oakland taste makers on the dock of the Lake Chalet this Thursday evening from 5-9pm. Dress in business casual or cocktail attire and be prepared to celebrate an amazing night for Oakland. There are only a few tickets left, so purchase now! You won’t want to miss this.
