Topical Cream’s friends and family gathered at 50 Bowery rooftop bar to celebrate our 6th anniversary.
Flaunt Magazine picked up the story. Sahra Motalebi’s booming operatic voice greeted our guests, who had to walk through the massive blacked out space to reach the elevator and the party on the top floor.
Nicole Eisenman and Theresa Chromati were honored with custom Ilegal Mezcal cocktails and Whitney Fred, Ren G, Dese Escobar, and Venus X DJ’d. The party mood was gothic Miami with hot pink lighting surrounding palm tree, while friends of Topical Cream arrived in their very best club looks to for the occasion.
