One-of-a-Kind Event Will Transform Delray Beach’s Great Lawn
Cointreau Chillounge Night, an upscale outdoor event that transforms a public area into a posh nightclub and lounge for one night only, is coming to downtown Delray Beach for the first time on Friday, May 21 and will benefit Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc, an organization created to benefit music programs in schools.
Cointreau will once again be the presenting sponsor for this exotic transformation. Since the first Chillounge Night was held in Sarasota in 2008, the popular club-like concept has expanded to additional Florida cities that include Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando and Fort Myers. The last event in Orlando drew over 4,000 attendees and made for a spectacular evening.
Delray Beach’s first Cointreau Chillounge Night will be held at The Great Lawn, the beautiful new park area between Old School Square and NE 2nd Avenue. Hundreds of chic daybeds and other outdoor furnishings will be set up to create a cozy, comfortable setting for an evening of food, drink and entertainment that will be held from 6:30 – 11:30 p.m.
Admission to the elegant outdoor area, complete with lights, sound system, and a stage that will be filled with musical entertainment, dance performances, fashion models and more, is $20 per person at the door. Guests must be 21 or older to attend. Advance tickets are on sale now for $15 while a limited number of VIP tickets, which include complimentary food and a full bar in an exclusive VIP section, are available for $75.
In addition to the wonderful line-up of live musical entertainment, which includes smooth jazz sounds, there will be a showcase fashion show highlighting the area’s hottest designer Shy Figaro. At 10 p.m., a fireworks display will be presented and of course, Chillounge Night’s signature Brazilian Samba Parade by Paulo Gualano will cap off the evening.
The upscale event is the creation of founder Rainer Scheer, a Sarasota resident and gallery owner. His first Chillounge Night was held Feb. 2, 2008 in downtown Sarasota and attracted 2,500 attendees. That evening’s activities included tango dancers, opera singers, jazz musicians, a fashion show, cigar lounge, lively Brazilian Samba dancers and procession, a line-up that is followed in each city where Chillounge sets up.
“We create a beautiful atmosphere and provide an experience that combines music, fashion, dance and great food, all within an elegant setting that offers a perfect place to have fun, meet people and chill,” said Scheer.
