Best Party Ever!

An hour before the doors opened, the line to get into Sevilla’s Grand Opening Party on July 27 was already stretching down the block. It was the start of a tremendous evening hosted by Sevilla and Partying for a Purpose, which saw more than 450 people turn out and raised more than $11,000 for the local nonprofit It’s All About the Kids!

Guests in their hottest attire paused to get their pictures taken on the red carpet before entering the beautiful new Tapas Bar to enjoy complimentary tapas, paella, and sangria, and wine tasting in the elegant mezzanine. They were excited to check in on social media for a chance at generous giveaways. Live Flamenco guitarists entertained in the Tapas Bar, and later in the evening the adorable students of Paloma Aragon Arte Flamenco, led by their teacher, Rocío Carrera, performed top-notch Sevillanas, Rumba, and Bulerías on the stage in the glamorous new nightclub.

The party continued well into the night as revelers stayed for free salsa lessons and dancing in the club. We at Sevilla couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our return to the Gaslamp Quarter than to party with all our friends and raise money for a great cause, thanks to you.
