3rd ANNUAL “BLACK COUTURE BALL” on THE FILLMORE

 

Celebrating 100 years of fashion and nightlife

This event takes place on Fillmore St., between Geary & Eddy Streets. A three block area area on the Fillmore entertainment corridor is transformed into a classy and hip trip back in time.

An event like no other… Bars, restaurants, dining, drinking, dancing, art, music and more. We encourage you to wear your finest “black” vintage attire of the past ten decades. If you don’t have vintage clothing, then current style is just fine. Pick out your classiest, sexist black outfit.
