Lilac, the hottest series of social mixers for gay professionals, takes a field trip to Claremont. Why Claremont? Through a friend of a friend of a friend, Marc, the host of Lilac, was introduced to a most fabulous fondue jazz club. Hip Kitty opened last year in a renovated packing plant in downtown Claremont, surprisingly sophisticated, surrounded by restaurants, interesting shops, and live/work lofts, all next to a train depot with direct service from Union Station.
Hip Kitty features live jazz music each night, including this Sunday during Lilac. The decor is seriously 1960's kitsch, with fondue pots, 60's hanging light fixtures, and an entire wall of 1960's cityscape paintings, all collected by the owner, Nancy Lopez. The fondue is great, and so is the creative extensive cocktail menu.
Join us for Lilac this Sunday (tomorrow), March 16, from 7-10 pm. The $10 cover includes appetizers, and you may want to linger later with your new friends over a pot of chocolate fondue, seductively dipping and feeding each other. RSVP to [email protected], or call 818.980.1055.
Hip Kitty is located at 502 W First St, Claremont, CA 91711.
