One night only, Club Berlin will be held on Nov. 9 to benefit Rice University's Baker Institute and celebrate James A. Baker, III’s role in the fall of the Berlin Wall. Honorary event chairs Jenna Bush Hager and Henry Hager will be in attendance. Event co-chairs are Kristen and Lee Nix, Cody Sutton and Molly Reese Ward.
Club Berlin will feature New York-based DJ KISS on the turntables as well as bites from Houston’s top chefs: Bryan Caswell of Reef, who will create a delicious reef caviar bar, and Philip Speer of Uchi, who will design a world-class dessert bar. Ron Killen of Killen’s Steakhouse will helm a charcuterie bar. Grey Goose will provide a martini bar and signature Baker Wall Breakers, and CÔTÉ OR will provide a champagne bar.
