About this Event

A Valentine’s Night

Raul Avila presents a night of live music and love.

New York, NY – Met Gala designer and producer Raul Avila will host “A Valentine’s Night” at Bar-21, his new establishment in Chelsea, on Saturday February 12th from 8:00 pm-12:00 am.

Avila invites you and all lovers (single, taken, queer, and allies) for a night of music, mingling, drinking and a riveting live performance.

Gone are the days of traditional speed dating. Upon arrival, each guest will be given a colored tag to identify their preference and whether they’re interested in socializing with other guests with the potential of exchanging numbers.

Doors will open promptly at 8:00 pm and one of Bar-21’s resident DJs will spin a mixture of feel-good music with a touch of romance. Rising star Michael Reid and his six-person band will follow at 9:00 pm, serenading the crowd with his powerful voice. Then finally the evening will end with a post-show DJ set.

About Raul Avila and Bar-21:

Avila has been the mastermind behind the Met Gala’s design and production for 15 going on 16 years and a resident of Chelsea for over 10 years. He embarked on a journey to give back to the community that has given him so much. He first opened Raul Retail in 2019 where the everyday person can get their own high luxury treatment in the form of home decor and floral arrangements. He then branched off and created a Colombian coffee shop called Café-Flor (coincidentally right next door) which doubles as Bar-21 in the evening where everyone can order top-notch cocktails. The next step in this venture (which is currently underway) is bringing an immersive experience under one roof where florals, fine art, cocktails, and coffee meet to flourish.
