Back in 2011, Vogue vouched for George Esquivel's brilliant bowling shoe collab with Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel's stylish lounge, The Spare Room. In honor of the LA-based shoe designer's second round of kicks for the the popular gaming parlor, we're hosting a retro rager and trunk show on Tomorrow, March 26. Of course, you're invited.
Taking place from 6 to 9pm inside The Spare Room, the free event will feature an exclusive sample sale of Esquivel x Spare's first line, with shoes ranging from $50 to $150. Small bites and spiked punch by Pavan will be served, as well as beats by DJ Yasi Cultist. If you're feeling competitive, partake in one of the lounge's many tourneys, including bowling (they have a built-in alley!), cards and board games. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure a spot.
