The American Club of Brussels invites you to come celebrate the 1950s at our “Grease” Party based on the 1978 movie, “Grease,” one of the most successful movie musicals of all time! This is the third event marking the ACB’s 95th anniversary after the Holiday Reception in December and the gala dinner dance in January.
The ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel will be transformed into Rydell High School. The doors open at 7:00 p.m. and there will be entertainment during the aperitif. From 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., there will be all-you-can eat food stands serving hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, and frites. From 9:30 onwards, popcorn, nachos with melted cheese, brownies and cookies will be served. Guests will receive two tokens for beer or wine. Additional beer or wine can be purchased at the cash bar at Final Friday prices. Soft drinks, water and fruit juices will be available free of charge all evening.
A DJ will provide music from the period (and, of course, the film), so get ready to rock ‘n roll! (Or just dance any way that moves you!)
Dress code is casual and period dress is a great plus, but not a requirement. And, if you haven’t seen or don’t remember “Grease,” there’s still time to see it again for inspiration.
With lots of young professionals present thanks to our collaboration with other international clubs here in Brussels, this will be an ideal opportunity to meet new people in a fun way!
