Theme Rooms

Below is a listing of the 2019 Theme Rooms.  Stand by for the exciting 2020 plan…..

The Sailors Ball features the famous and unique “theme-room format.”  Guests will be able to glide from room to room throughout the evening and experience different sights, sounds and environments.

The Mason & Sons Casino & Martini Room

Start your evening in 007-style at the Mason & Sons Casino Room. Mason & Sons is famous for menswear, tailoring and accessories for the modern gentleman. VDKA 6100 and Corgi Gin Martinis will be served. The music will be “bondesque.”

And while you are in the Mason & Sons Casino Room, try your luck at some Vegas style game tables, including blackjack, craps, and roulette. Guests may purchase chips inside the room and then if you are lucky, use your chips to try and win some prizes at the end of the evening. All of this is to help raise money for the Foundation, so play a lot, win some and lose some. Look good, feel good and do good.

The Mount Gay Rum Photo Booth Room

This is the sailors rum and one of the original sponsors of the Sailors Ball.  The Mt Gay Rum Room will feature Mt Gay Rum & tonics, a fun photo booth, and Caribbean music.  All sailors who have visited the Caribbean are invited to gather in this room at 10 pm to dance to some favorite songs from Caribbean Week regattas.

The Mt Gay Rum Room will also feature the Sailors Ball Photo Booth. Get there early while there is still film in the camera. Record yourself and your friends and post live on your social media as it is happening.

Mala Vida Tequila Not-So-Silent Auction Room

The Mala Vida Not-So-Silent Auction Room is where you can bid on great items like a one-week vacation in Hilton Head, a party for you and 9 of your friends on Arabella, and an Amagansett Weekend getaway. This silent auction will go until midnight. Win something great for you or your date. All proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the 12 Meter Program.

Now the reason this is called the Not-so-Silent Auction” is that it is sponsored by Mala Vida Tequila!! The intense flavors, balanced aroma and medium body give Mala Vida Blanco the perfect balance for premium beverages. And to make the Sailors Ball even more exciting this year, stop by and try the luge! If you have to ask, Jim Hendrix would say you are not experienced enough. Welcome to the legendary Sailors Ball!

The Sound Off™ Silent Disco Dance Hall

Look to the left and behind the black velvet curtain.  You’ll hear no sound as you approach the entrance, just the jumping of feet and the pumping of arms in the air.  When you walk into the darkness, you will be greeted with a pair of Sound Off headphone.  Set your headphone to your favorite channel and launch into the newest dance experience sweeping the party scene.  The next time you want to host a super cool event, but can’t have blaring sound, reach out to the team at Sound Off Experience!

Lester Lanin Orchestra Room

This year will feature the return of the Lester Lanin Orchestra for all those people who like to swing and dance to a live big band. The Lester Lanin Orchestra will be playing in the Grand Ballroom with beautiful white columns.

The Heineken Boom Boom Room

This room may begin the evening as a quiet enclave where you can escape and relax, but be forewarned. At the stroke of midnight, this room transforms into a Full Moon Party. The lights go down, the amplifier goes up and the subwoofer begins to vibrate. No matter where you have been for the rest of the evening, at midnight, the hottest place to be is always the Heineken Boom Boom Room. There is a thumping beat, deep base and a playlist careening from disco to rock to current dance and EDM. It can get a bit crowded, with wall to wall people, dancing the final hour away. All sorts of things happen in the Boom Boom Room as the Sailors Ball draws to a close. Make magic. Have a little fun. Cut loose. Stay young forever. Did Rihanna sing, “We found love in the hottest place…”
