Silicon Valley and SF society turned out over the weekend for the first ever ‘Rose by the Bay’ party-where wine royalty and Whispering Angel creator Sacha Lichine showed the Bay area how to party in a celebration with the angels. Co hosts-were design star Ken Fulk and Bond Capital star Juliet de Baubigny.
Fulk’s Saint Joseph Society, a deconsecrated Catholic Church now re-created as a glamorous 20,000-square-foot-party space, was flooded in shades of pink light to match all of Lichine’s famous rose’s. Fresh off sponsoring the San Francisco Decorator Showcase where several designers featured Lichine’s bottles in their rooms and came to party, Lichine flew in a swing band for Friday’s bash from Hong Kong, Pete Moore Band, playing classy standards before the night erupted into a high rock and roll and dance set St. Tropez style by buzzy Australian DJ GG Magree, a buddy of Vanessa Hudgens. Over 1,000 bottles were consumed including magnums, double magnums and jeroboams of the famed Whispering Angel, Rock Angel and Garrus by execs from Instagram, Twitter, AirBNB, Google, YouTube and former Hearst boss Joanna Coles who is now spending time in Silicon Valley as well as famed Chinese chef Cecilia Chang with food by the Slanted Door’s Charles Phan, and Michelin starred Morroccan sensation Chef Mourad Lahlou, half of SF “it” couple with Mathilde Froustey (SF Ballet Principal Dancer), Benjamin Freemantle (SF Ballet Principal Dancer), Twitter billionaire Omid Kordestani and wife Gisel Kordestani, Calm meditation app founder Michael Acton Smith, SoFi Exec Libby Leffler, Tolan Florence wife of Food Network star Chef Tyler Florence, global bon vivantSebastian Taylor, DJ Rob Garza, Future Bars Founder Doug Dalton and more.
Saint Joseph’s Society is a cultural arts center haven for artists, creatives and entrepreneurs based at the former church complete with a church bell at the top, which guests can ring at a whim as Lichine did to kick off the event.
