The Art of Elysium welcomed 2019 by hosting their 12th Annual Black Tie celebration, HEAVEN, the night before the Golden Globes at a new private venue in Koreatown. The event was co-chaired by Evangelo Bousis, Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix.
During the cocktail hour, guests sipped on specialty cocktails sponsored by Ketel One Botanical and snacked on appetizers crafted by celeb Chef Shirley Chung. Michael Muller’s vision of HEAVEN includes oceanic views, so the cocktail space was packed with panoramic underwater seascapes including wall art featuring sharks and other under-the-sea flora and fauna.
