Austin’s most stylish trendsetters flocked to The Belmont on Monday for the much buzzed-about CultureMap Social: Style Edition.

The uber-hip space, combined with the fashionable folks in attendance, made for a chic evening of networking, music, and best of all, people watching. 

On the venue's spacious patio, partygoers bobbed along to electro-house sounds from DJ Nabiya de Grace and musical stylings from bass-heavy rock group The Sour Notes, while sipping on Cat Tequila and Mezcal cocktails and brews from Odell. Bullfight offered a salted caramel panna cotta dessert and a savory whipped bacalao appetizer, while The Belmont served a fresh green salad topped with roasted pork.

Inside, guests posed for the photo booth; perused the pop-up shop with merchandise from The Distillery Market, Noah Marion Quality Goods, and Suavs shoes; and checked out Sweet Magnolia Floral Studio’s flower crowns, perfectly suited for the upcoming ACL weekend. Swag bags were also passed out, which featured selections from The Bearded Bastard, Cat Tequila, and Suavs.

Also in attendance were CultureMap Stylemaker finalists, who dressed to impress with killer looks that emanated a uniquely Austin vibe in hopes of winning over votes for our inaugural style awards.

With over 200 guests present, a portion of the event's proceeds went to Dress for Success.

Arguably the best way to kick off the week, guests eventually filed out of The Belmont with smiles on their faces, Tiff’s Treats cookies in hand.
