Unleash your inner fantasy and immerse yourself in a world where mystery and allure converge. NOTE: Masks are not required but they are HIGHLY encouraged. If attendees plan to enjoy dark adult libations the historic Hofheimer bar staff will offer up, they should consider a mask that doesn’t cover one’s mouth.

 H O S T V E N U E : This bewitching evening, offering a unique alternative to traditional, less creative Valentine’s themed events, the FANTASY BALL: A Morbid Masquerade will unfold within the walls of the historic Hofheimer Building in Richmond—a venue steeped in history and grandeur. Built in 1928, this architectural gem located at the edge of Scott’s Addition provides the perfect backdrop for our morbid masquerade, adding an extra layer of allure to an already enchanting affair.
