The Speakeasy SkyLounge is an exclusive after party for VIP ticket-holders on the top floor executive suite of sponsoring First National Bank of Fort Smith. The bank, located in the heart of downtown Fort Smith, is the tallest building — and one of the most iconic historic sites — in the City of Fort Smith, Arkansas. 

VIP Guests will enjoy reserved parking spaces in the bank's parking lot and shuttle service to and from the inaugural Garrison Gatsby main event entrance at Garrison Commons, reserved seating inside of Cisterna Park, and additional drink vouchers in addition to what is included with general admission tickets.

After the street dinner, only 50 VIP ticket-holders will have exclusive access to the Speakeasy SkyLounge featuring unparalleled and panoramic birds-eye views of historic Downtown Fort Smith, the mighty Arkansas River Valley, and the starlit peaks of The Ozarks. Grab a drink from the Speakeasy SkyLounge bar, listen to the smooth melodies of our LIVE in-lounge jazz pianist, JD Chitwood, and...

Reflect on the obstacles this city has overcome since 1817, how we've progressed over the course of 200 years, and all the possibilities the future presents for this city...all from the top of a building that has seen it all and will continue to stand tall as Fort Smith blossoms around it. On behalf of the Fort Smith Downtown Business Association, our sponsors and partnering non-profit organizations, we thank you for your support and the important hand you play in continuing our legacy as a city with too much GRIT to ever quit.
