Final Night Gala at a very special Miami venue
Where else but Miami can you find a unique venue such as @dupontbuilding with its history and architectural features? As one of Miami’s earliest skyscrapers, the Alfred I. Dupont Building brings a bit of history and drama to any event held there. The Ballroom space originally housed a bank and many of those beautiful reminders of its past are still there, from the gilded iron gates and ornate, iron-caged teller windows, 30-ft ceilings, incredible marble floors to a walk-in bank vault. But this being Miami, everything is just a bit more GLAMOROUS!
Guests arrived through the gilded iron gates and were directed toward the 2,000 sqr-ft Bank Vault for cocktail reception. After entering past the 50,000 lb safe door (!) an ICE BAR served specialty nitrogen cocktails poured by “molecular-mixologists”
For dinner and dancing, they moved into the main Ballroom area with its hand-painted, 30-ft cypress wood ceilings featuring historic hand-painted murals. Gold-topped, royal tables were decorated with brass candelabras, crystal-beaded candle holders and white flowers.
