LDBA-Brooklyn, NY

Hey friends, please join us for a very special event. On April 22nd and 23rd, we are headed upstate for a weekend of food, fires, and music at Glen Tonche, near Shokan, NY, brought to you by LDBA & Joint Venture.

 


The setting for our getaway was built in 1928. Glen Tonche, the mountaintop estate, is steeped in rich history and music royalty. It is the home of Allaire Studios, where David Bowie and Grizzly Bear recorded, among others. It is a stunning 18,000-square foot compound that can be reached only by private switchback road.

We invite you for a 24-hour stay. We will provide transportation from Brooklyn on Saturday, April 22nd. After drinks and snacks, we will take you on a tour of the property and check you into your individual rooms. There will be plenty of time to explore the hiking trails, enjoy a cocktail or two, mingle, or relax on the grounds or in your room until dinner. Dinner, cooked over the fire, will be served in the Neve Hall  (Bowie’s favorite room and where he made his music). There will be musical entertainment, a lovely outdoor fire after dinner, and wine and cocktails all night.
We will serve a light breakfast and coffee on Sunday and, eventually, head back to Brooklyn.
