Roving Entertainment

Look for our roving artisans, artists and the eclectic to add spice, and soothing sophistication to your New Year’s party! Watch for more details as we announce complimentary massages, caricatures, and other fun surprises to help make your night memorable!

Food / Hors d’oeuvres

Prior to midnight in our general admission section, we’ll be serving a collection of light hors d’oeuvres to complement the extensive and well-stocked bars located throughout the event.

Our VIP guests will enjoy a private and much more extensive buffet of hors d’oeuvres befitting the exclusivity of this offering, all hosted in the private VIP lounge.

Dress Code

As with all Bonza Bashes, dress to impress. While this is a “black tie” event, some guests may prefer to wear semi-formal cocktail attire. Please be aware that most people will be in tuxedos, suits, gowns and cocktail dresses. We wish to remind guests that jeans, shirts without a collar and/or sneakers are all inappropriate for an event of this nature, and will be expressly forbidden. Regrettably we must decline entry to a very small number of guests for this reason each year, so please ensure you don’t become a statistic!

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!

Party With a Cause

Every Bonza Bash event we host, we seek to provide a platform for worthy local non-profit organizations to advance their causes and gain wider exposure for the work they do. This event is no different, and we’re delighted to welcome aboard “Bridge of Promise” as our beneficiary partner for this Bonza Bash NYE 2011 Gala Ball.
