Besides all the alluring finds in fields and barns, the fall Round Top Antiques & Design Show was defined by exciting events with a side of country. Cue The Halles venue, where PaperCity magazine and Round Top Publishers curated a series of unique evenings to lure show-goers with down-home yet artful cocktails mixers, with the finale being a raucous ’70s-themed bash.

The festivities began with a note of the avant-garde: Austin- and Manhattan-based West Chelsea Contemporary, a Halles exhibitor, hosted an art-centric cocktail as founder/co-owner Lisa Russell and gallery director Megen Litz held court, while WCC artists Wiley Ross and Bill Tavis displayed their painting prowess.

Then the thank you party — a Round Top tradition — did not disappoint. The Studio 54 Disco Cowboy theme brought down the house, due to the high-voltage vibes of the live entertainment: Disco Alley’s Denverado, accompanied by John Boyd and DJ Melodic.

Champagne Problems, represented by founder Sonya Winfree, and AllHands supplied libations from a chic cocktail cart. After the happy hour, guests beelined to the buffet, where chef Lena Le prepared a delicious Southern Supper; the Crave Cupcake tower lured those with a sweet tooth. There are already plans to do it again next spring.
