Central West End Cocktail Party
The Central West End is home to what many have claimed as the first cocktail party on record — held in 1917 by Mrs. Julius S. Walsh Jr. in her home at 4510 Lindell Boulevard. Each year, the CWE pays tribute to this very important anniversary and celebrates the neighborhood history in style! With beautiful tree-lined streets as the backdrop, enjoy live entertainment, a spirited cocktail competition and, of course, delicious food and drinks available for purchase from more than a dozen CWE bars and restaurants. Get ready to mingle, dance, sample, and sip! Grab your friends and family for a fun-filled evening, featuring live music, aerial performers, fire dancers, unicyclists, photo booths, cotton candy, and more!
