The star-studded birthday affair for Thomas Henry Jr. was held at the radically transformed Hotel Discotheque lounge in San Antonio this past weekend. As in usual tradition with the Henry’s decadent celebrations, art, fashion, and celebrity performers were just a few of the innovative elements of the opulent affair, which was produced by television-acclaimed, celebrity production designer Dylan Marer.
Marer and his team from Hollywood transformed the venue to transport guests to a modern Gatsby-esque world all its own, complete with floor-to-ceiling decor, art installations, aerial performers, burlesque showgirls, provocateurs dancing in birdcages, and contortionists swimming in oversized martini glasses. The venue boasted a cigar and whisky lounge and a one-of-a-kind ice bar experience. Guests were treated to a carefully-curated tasting menu which included a lobster and caviar bar while world-class mixologists prepared whimsical libations. In classic Gatsby fashion, the champagne flowed all night.
The highlight of the evening was featured performances by top world-renowned music artists: Diplo, J Balvin and Migos. The birthday boy was also gifted a fully loaded blue Ferrari, in addition to an IWC Portugieser Tourbillion watch and a custom-made painting from Alec Monopoly. The affair cost approximately 4 million dollars! Other celebrity guests included: Ashanti, Rumer Willis, Lance Bass, Josh Henderson, Adrienne Bailon, Joanna Krupa, Aubrey O’Day, Austin Mahone and more.
