New York – Following the Fashion Week debut of EleVen by Venus Williams, a new line of tennis wear designed by the sports star, GREY GOOSE® Vodka celebrated late-night with an exclusive DJ spinoff featuring pro athlete James Blake versus DJ masters KISS and M.O.S. The private party, which attracted more than 500 New York revelers, was part of the vodka brand’s “Blue Door” series, a secret roster of pop up events planned around top moments in entertainment – including the US Open Tennis Championships that just concluded earlier this week.
GREY GOOSE Mixologists Randy Evans and Ron Patric crafted cocktails for featured guests James Blake and KISS and M.O.S., in addition to an elite list of tastemakers and trendsetters out in New York for Fashion Week
James Blake made a valid effort, spinning beats and taking requests from party guests, yet super-couple KISS and M.O.S. won the match point and got the crowd on their feet.
Guests enjoyed the music and competition until the early hours, while sipping on signature drinks served during the Open like the classic GREY GOOSE Honey Deuce and newly introduced Cherry Slice.
