“New York, New York” may be a hit Frank Sinatra song, but Washington, D.C. was the place to be on July 9—particularly at the 24th annual Sinatra Soiree held by the Capital Club of Washington.
Hundreds of the club’s members and guests mingled and danced the night away as a live band filled Dock 5 at Union Market with some of Sinatra’s greatest tunes. Dressed in cocktail and “summer ahoy” attire, attendees sipped on “Tipsy Tuckernucks,” the specialty drink of the night. After the soiree, guests headed to Hawthorne on U Street for the official after party.
The Capital Club is a nationally recognized social organization and holds multiple parties and events throughout the year. Some of their signature gatherings also include Shamrock Soiree, the Gold Cup and the Santa Soiree. The non-profit club is invite-only and supports multiple charities, including the Trey Lefler Memorial Scholarship Fund. The club was founded in 1980.
