Reunion nightclub opens doors with party in El Dorado HillsBy: Penne Usher, Telegraph Correspondent
EL DORADO HILLS, CA - Court Jesters, harlequin stilt walkers, acrobats and circus-style performers greeted and entertained guests of a Thursday night VIP event at the newly opened Reunion nightclub in El Dorado Hills’ Town Center.
“We feel like we are in Tahoe or Vegas,” said Lee Anne Carson, of El Dorado Hills, who nibbled on cocktail cuisine small bites and sampled specialty cocktails with friends Jennifer Koehler and Tracy Rosenberg-Roso.
San Francisco and Sacramento night club owner George Karpaty expanded his reach and officially opened the new club Oct. 19.
If the soft-opening event was any indication, the 6,500-square-foot space could become the place to be.
Karpaty has seen great success with his other ventures including Ruby Sky in San Francisco and Dive Bar, Pizza Rock and District 30 in Sacramento.
Karpaty spared no expense and overlooked nothing for his Thursday event.
An attentive wait staff offered small bites including Chinese chicken salad, served in small take-out containers, lamb skewers, cheese tarts and cocktail prawns.
Rosenberg-Roso, of El Dorado Hills, owns the Hub Coffee House and Café in Town Center. She said the new night spot will add to the appeal of Town Center.
“This will add more to the community in El Dorado Hills and it’s a great place that will bring in a more people to the area,” she said. “It’s good to add something like this to the area.”
While guests filled the inside and outdoor seating areas, enjoying specialty cocktails and an open bar, acrobats and various performers from Earth Circus Productions entertained the crowd.
Karpaty was happy to see the several hundred people who showed up to celebrate.
“My staff worked so hard getting this place ready,” he said. “Thank you all.”
Debbie Manning, El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, was on hand Thursday and expressed her pleasure at having “our very own night club.”
“When Selland's opened, because it was so well known by name, we saw more people coming to Town Center from other areas,” Manning said. “Reunion is likely to do the same and it will only be a benefit to the area.”
The new night spot is open Wednesday through Sunday and offer complimentary, small bites, dancing and entertainment. A dress code is enforced and there is a cover charge. For more information on upcoming events or to make a reservation, visit www.reunion-nightclub.com.
