Ladies, you are cordially invited for high tea and high-society hobnobbing in the opulent surrounds of the Ladies Lounge, created by artist and curator Kirsha Kaechele. It’s inspired by Kirsha’s great-grandmother: a scandalous socialite who threw ladies-only parties at her Beverly Hills and Basel estates involving a fleet of devoted butlers, 400-year-old wines, and the occasional visit from Pablo Picasso (hold on to your champagne and caviar: several priceless Picassos furnish the lounge here at Mona, rummaged from great-granny’s attic).

The lounge is a tremendously lavish space in our museum in which women can indulge in decadent nibbles, fancy tipples, and other ladylike pleasures—hosted and entertained by the fabulous butler. And as is always the case with Kirsha’s dinners and feasts, you are a participant in what she sees as the art itself, part of a living installation.

Any and all ladies are welcome.

High Tea for Two includes an array of preposterous morsels prepared by Mona’s executive chef Vince Trim and his team, matched refreshments, your very own butler, and museum entry. Come dressed up in your green, gold, black and white finery; a lady always looks the part.​
