Last Saturday, Montclair’s Wellmont Theater became a secret jazz club taken over by flappers, gangsters, and great booze and food at The Speakeasy, presented by Montclair Food & Wine Festival (MFWF).
Some 700 people, many dressed in period garb, partied at The Speakeasy, posing for photos by a vintage automobile outside and dancing to the hot jazz inside by Brass Illusion.
This ‘thug’ — bouncer — will be pulling people out of line while they wait to get inside. The bouncer is going to ask these possible patrons if they know the secret password. If they do, the bouncer will escort them directly inside. The secret password is going to be leaked on The Montclair Food & Wine Festival’s social media, here, here, and here.
Proud to announce that #Speakeasy17 raised a SMASHING $30,000 for @intensive_therapeutics and will be making a grant to #MontclairHighSchool #DIGS
