Are you looking for our upcoming event, Bonza Bash New Year's Eve 2011/2012 (ie 31st December 2011)?

Frequently Asked Questions


What should I wear?

As with all Bonza Bashes, dress to impress. This is a “Black Tie” event, however semi-formal cocktail attire is also acceptable. Most people will be in tuxedos, suits, gowns and cocktail dresses. Please note that jeans/sneakers will be expressly forbidden. Such clothing is not appropriate for an event of this nature, our security personnel will not be permitting entry to guests so dressed. We get so few opportunities to dress to the nines in Seattle, so take advantage of our deals and dazzle the night away in your finest!

But I don’t have a tux! Can’t I just wear my Santa Claus knit sweater?

No. That would be wrong on a number of levels. Check out our tuxedo rental special – and leave the sweater at home.

It’s last minute and I still don’t have a tux! What should I do?

The deal we have on tuxes allows you to rent last minute, even the day of the event! Please don’t stress Bob out by leaving it this late, but don’t let this be a reason to not come!

Can I wear jeans?

Definitely not! As noted above, this is Seattle’s most sophisticated, yet fun, New Year’s Eve event. Class it up a notch or two. If you turn up in jeans security will kindly ask you to go home and get changed.
