It’s official! The details on the 23rd annual Hair O’ the Dog, Philly’s hottest event of the year, are in. And this time we’re anticipating the most breathtaking, intoxicating and exhilarating affair to date. It’s going to be big, bad and edgy—uninhibited rock meets glamour and elegance.
Here’s what you need to know.
Without further ado, we’re thrilled to announce that The 2017 Hair O’ the Dog will take place on January 7th at Philly’s newest and most beloved beautiful live concert venue: The Fillmore!
In case you aren’t familiar with the newfound Fishtown favorite, let’s go over the details about the space, and (almost) everything that’ll be going down there on 01/07/2017.
About the Venue
Based on the legendary eponymous music venues in San Francisco and New York City that came to prominence in the 1960s when rock and roll was thriving, The Fillmore Philadelphia was opened in the fall of 2015 to carry the torch of their legacies. The 20,000 + square foot space encompasses a charming 125-year-old classic brick factory, outfitted with elegant accoutrements like the massive chandeliers that hang from the music hall’s ceilings. That elegance is paired brilliantly with the edginess of maintained authentic graffiti—a tribute to the goings on in the building between its time as a functioning factory and the multi-million dollar concert venue it was destined to become.
The Fillmore, with its edgy-meets-elegant vibe, couldn’t reside in a more fitting neighborhood—Fishtown. In the past several years, this section of Philadelphia, set along the Delaware River and located just north of Center City and Northern Liberties, has revitalized itself. It’s now considered an epicenter of all that’s cool and hip, and hosts an arts, music and cultural scene to rival its most a la mode companions, like Brooklyn, Seattle and Austin.
Since we’re taking over the whole of The Fillmore for Hair O’ the Dog, that means our guests will have access to the Foundry, an exclusive concert space located inside the building. We’ll be converting the already intimate space into a stunning private VIP room for our most exclusive attendees. Make sure to purchase the right ticket package if you’re interested in checking that out!
More Major Announcements Coming Soon
We’re going to make a HUGE announcement regarding live music entertainment in the upcoming weeks, so be sure to keep on the lookout for that. After all, we are are the top DJ services provider in Philly, so you know we wouldn’t skimp on live entertainment!
Tickets, Food and Beverages
Speaking of ticket packages, we’ll have several options available for those who want to attend Hair O’ the Dog (the fine details will be available when the all-new website for the event launches next month). In the meantime, we’ll tell you that every package will come with access to the hosted top shelf cocktail bar. Some of the packages will include top-notch gourmet buffets and passed appetizers.
While we’re on the subject of food and drinks, we’re pleased to announce that the hors d’oeuvres and gourmet fare will be provided by none other than world-renowned caterer, Wolfgang Puck.
For the first time, we’ll also be offering a ticket package that includes admission to Hair O’ the Dog towards the end, at 11 p.m., for guests who want to get a taste of the glamourous event.
Many guests of Hair O’ the Dog travel from far and wide to attend, and if you don’t live in Philly, you’ll likely be needing to make hotel arrangements. Thus, we’re partnering with two nearby hotels (both at varying price points to accommodate an array of budgets) to offer our guests with discounted stays in the city. The Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing and the Holiday Inn Express at Penn’s Landing are both participating. More information regarding their special rates will follow.
Clique 27 Partnership
We partnered with Clique 27 to create a dazzling new website for Hair O’ the Dog. Keep on the lookout for its launch on Halloween! Also, when the site launches is when tickets will become available, and they’re expected to go fast, so don’t waste any time.
Whether we’re putting on the hottest and biggest event in town, or hiring a wedding music DJ for your special day, you can count on Metrospect Events to deliver. And as we have for the past 22 years in row, deliver is what we intend to do at the 23rd annual Hair O’ the Dog.
