Finish Line Celebrates with Modern Cocktail Hour, Dinner at The Speakeasy

December 30, 2016Susan Young

More than 100 guests gathered to honor and celebrate one of its executives with a special get-together at the Speakeasy in Broad Ripple. The guests included family, friends and colleagues, DJ Indiana Jones and even a few Indiana Pacers.

To complement the Speakeasy’s industrial backdrop, with its wood and stainless influence and Edison lighting, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering arranged a modern and sophisticated table décor of navy and gray with charcoal gray linens, black resin chairs and navy Lamour linen napkins on round guest tables. Chalkboard art adorned the bar area, which featured craft beers, wine and a featured Manhattan cocktail, along with a full bar selection for guests to enjoy.
