You Had To Be There. presented by adidas Originals


Picture yourself at a house party where nobody had their phones out and everyone was dancing and living in the moment. That's what this is. And when your friends ask you how was the party?

You Had To Be There.

Presented by adidas Originals with surprise DJ sets and free custom shirts by artist Tony Peralta

21+ // Free with RSVP

Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Open Format

You Had To Be There is a phone-free party. In order to maintain this environment, all phones will be placed in pouches upon entering the venue. Guests maintain possession of their phones throughout the event and can unlock their pouches by stepping outside of the phone-free zone. Pouches do not block cell signal or texts; so your messages and likes will still be there when you exit the phone-free zone. We want to eliminate all the distractions of the world in your device and make sure you focus solely on enjoying our party environment. Unplug. Forget capturing the moment for your social media friends that aren't here and when they ask, just let them know You Had To Be There.
