Capitol File's Summer Party

| August 14, 2018 | Parties Events

Capitol File's annual summer party brought a little bit of Italy into the District with an Italian themed summer soiree at Fiola Mare on the Georgetown Waterfront. At the entrance of the restaurant, Aston Martin and Bentley vehicles were showcased to create the ultimate "wow" factor. It was truly an evening to remember with nautical themed inspiration within the decor including the florals from Petals Edge and the navy linens from Party Rentals. Contemporaria curated the lounges in which attendees mingled while enjoying bites by Fiola Mare and listening to the sounds of an Italian guitarist. The cocktail menu was inspired by the Italian Riviera with cocktails by One Eight Distilling and Peroni. The event also included activations that guests engaged with including Elite Tarot, an OMD GIF photobooth, and a champagne saber by the St. Regis. The affair didn't stop at the restaurant, as Capitol File took over the Georgetown Waterfront with three boats from Clarks Landing - guests sipped City Winery wine, enjoyed a raw bar with an Apperol Spritz, and took #socapitolfile photos on board. Upon sunset, Dolce Gelati brought out the gelato which kept everyone cool from the heat. Until next summer, Ciao!
