NORTHWEST -- It was all can-cans and cabarets for some 800 Washingtonians on Friday night, as the Corcoran Gallery of Art's 1869 Society hosted a Parisian-themed soiree inside the museum's much revered walls.

Actually a revival of one of the group's most talked about annual parties in years past, 2013's so-called 'Fall Fete' boasted a festive 'Americans in Paris' theme, with matching Eiffel Tower and Moulin Rouge backdrops both serving to help set scene.

Guests exuded glitz and glamour with black tie and ball gowns interspersing nicely amidst a handful of more playful and creative costumes.

Beyond an excuse to don a beret, the celebration's theme served a more academic purpose in drawing attention to the reinstallation of the American galleries at the Corcoran, as well as highlight the lure of Parisian life for American painters.

Those attendees who opted for a VIP experience on Friday night were provided access to an exclusive upstairs lounge, which boasted a cocktail bar stocked with American Spirit Whiskey creations courtesy of District Commons and parent company Passion Food Hospitality Wine & Beverage Director Scott Clime.

Everyone was free to enjoy the opens bars inside the gallery's cavernous atrium, however, in addition to the jams being doled out on the dance floor by DJs Provoke, Baronhawk Poitier, and Ozker.

Taking its name from the year of the Corcoran's founding, the 1869 Society is committed to promoting the arts in the District and celebrating the educational and cultural programs offered by the museum, with a specific focus on engaging the city's rising business, civic, and social leaders.

Wicked can-can dance moves are totally optional for membership.
