What: “A Night at the Copacabana”

Where: Chef David Cordua’s The Lymbar in The Ion

PC Moment: When it came time for “not” a holiday-themed party, designer Gin Braverman and the team of her namesake design firm selected to party at Chef David Cordua‘s spanking new restaurant dubbed The Lymbar for which the Gin team created the sleek decor. No tinsel and red bows, thank you. These designers opted for a tropical beat and embraced that thought with enthusiasm.

Practically every woman making the scene donned a spectacular Copacabana-inspired headdress. Think feathers, florals and sequins. It was a party so lively that the only way to end the merriment was to flash the lights and put a cap on cocktail service.

Actually, the theme was not too afield from the design which spoke to the restaurant’s culinary vibe, a tasty marriage of Latin and Mediterranean influences.
