UPDATE: Titanic VIP Nite is sold out. See you smarties who got tickets there!
Like all seemingly good ideas, the concept for the Titanic was conjured up over cocktails. In 1907, J. Bruce Ismay and Lord James Pierre decided to build the vast vessel along with two sister ships, the Olympic and the Britannic, for a line of the largest luxury ships ever built.
We all know how that ended:
Join us to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking in the most appropriate way possible – with a cocktail party.
Guests at Titanic VIP Nite can experience life aboard the ship as first or third-class passengers, although this is one case where you might not want to keep it classy.
Go the sophisticated route and sashay through first-class to the music of a string quartet, where schmancy hors d’oeuvres inspired by the first-class menu await. Then when you’re tired of all that restrained schmoozing, rub elbows with the rougher folk down in third class. There, a Celtic Rock band will have you dancing the jig in no time.
Also onboard? Captain Smith and the famous Mrs. Molly Brown. Be sure to chat up these two characters and ask them about their experience aboard – but be sensitive, and remember that Captain Smith went down with the ship.
