Please Note: The Florent / High Line Ball will be followed by a special event at the Roxy celebrating the return of legendary DJ Peter Rauhofer to this nightclub. Guests at the Florent / High Line Ball can purchase $25 wristbands for this special event during the Florent / High Line Ball without waiting in line outside. Long lines are expected.

Because of elaborate set-up requirements for the "Rauhofer Returns 2 Roxy" party, everyone will have to leave the Roxy between events. Florent / High Line Ball guests will gather informally at a nearby restaurant or bar before returning to the Roxy. If you have purchased a "Rauhofer Returns 2 Roxy" party at the Florent / High Line Ball, your wristband will allow you to re-enter when the later event starts without waiting in line.
