The recently renovated Flowers of Vietnam will officially reopen on Dec. 31 for a New Year's Eve party, hosted in conjunction with its Southwest Detroit neighbors El Club, which released new details Tuesday.

The party has two tiers of tickets. One includes dinner at Flowers of Vietnam and entry El Club, featuring live music by Sky Ferreira and Iceage. Those tickets are $150 plus service fees. A second tier, the "Big Baller Edition," features the above but also includes VIP access to the party, a meet-and-greet with Ferreira, and more. Those tickets are $200 plus service fees.

Both tickets include a coursed menu and beverage pairing. Gratuity is included, and a cash bar is also available.

The New year's Eve party menu is as follows:

Gὀi Ngũ Sắc: Green papaya, kinda bougie, aged nuoc mam, traditional accompaniments

Tôm Rang Muối: Fried salt and pepper shrimp, scallion, cilantro

“Winter Rolls”

Surf and Turf: 90 day dry aged porterhouse, Lobster, gout

“Ché Düa”: Flavors and textures of young coconut, citrus, rau mau

Tickets can be purchased here.

George Azar started Flowers of Vietnam as a weekend-only pop up in January 2016 inside Vernor Coney Island. He closed shop in March to work on renovations for a permanent establishment.
