Hearing “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” brings back one of two feelings: horrid nightmares of high school English class, or an alternate world built upon fleeting fantasies, rich indulgences, and seductive standards.
Ivy Entertainment is creating this flight of the imagination with the help of some notoriously desired ladies—the Playboy Playmates. On August 19, Ivy Rooftop will transform into A Midsummer Night’s Dream, resembling the nocturnal escapades found in the Playboy Mansion but delivered right here in our own backyard. Luring the masses in for a scandalous night of magical bacchanalia, a full collection of performers and distinguished hosts are lining up in anticipation.
To live out every wild fantasy you’ve conjured up, you’ll get to meet the ladies who give Playboy its sexy high-standards. Five gorgeous Playboy Playmates Amy Andrews, Jessica Burciaga, Kayla Collins, Pennelope Jimenez and Hiromi Oshima will host the affair, offering an opportunity to party and meet the highly sought-after icons. If you’ve been entrenched in any part of the San Diego nightlife scene, you’ve likely witnessed a performance or two from the Lipstik Inc. dancers, who will continue to woo crowds with tantalizing choreographed dance pieces throughout the Midsummer evening. The girls take on sultry themes each week, and this special night is no different.
Guests can expect Ivy’s resident DJ Este to work the turn tables during A Midsummer Night’s Dream, along with a slew of talent from other DJs and artists. DJ Tara Brooks and DJ Sanjay will heat up the rooftop pool, while Diggs and Kinky Loops bring unique interpretations of musical entertainment for a fully-loaded night. Rico DeLargo is warming up his trumpet to shrill with sound. Yes, you read that right. Rico is renowned for his intricate trumpet work, alongside high-caliber DJs all across the nation. He’s even opened for some top acts such as Paul Oakenfold and Sharam. Based out of Hollywood, he creates magic for our eardrums by creating spontaneous remixes of any song the DJ is spinning. Skilled? Yes. Sexy? Oh yes.
The event calls for guests to dress at upscale and glamour-chic levels, while additionally donning mysterious masquerade masks. Full transformations are in store, as Ivy Nightclub turns into a Playboy haven and attendees become masked seducers in a lustful evening of entertainment, drinks, and debauchery. Guests can also drink in style with a hosted bar from 10-11pm. A “happier hour” is offered from 5-8pm at the Ivy Wine Bar & Quarter Kitchen Bar, that serves up $5 premium cocktails and half off the gourmet menu.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream Playboy Party launches the mischief and mystery at Ivy Rooftop starting at 9pm. Tickets are available for purchase at ivyentertainmentsandiego.com. For bottle service reservations call 800.660.0989.
