Hello Tampa. Melissa here to tell you guys about the Great Gatsby Party which will be held at Fletcher Lounge at the University of Tampa this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
1920’s attire is encouraged but not required at this legendary party that will take place in the former Tampa Bay Hotel dining room.
Experience the roaring twenties come to life for an evening with “gangsters” requiring passwords from room to room as you walk through custom designed doors. If you are looking for the perfect outfit but not sure where to go, look no further than LaFrance, in Ybor City.

Unescorted women (or ones whose husbands are wallflowers) will have their choice of three men who will be on hand for your dancing pleasure. Regular ticket pricing is as follows:
