If you’ve ever attended a wedding at the downtown Tampa venue The Vault, then you probably won’t even recognize  when it’s transformed into an enchanting woodland for next month’s whimsical event.

On Friday-Saturday, July 14-15, The Vault will be filled with “interactive specialty artists” and their unique interpretations of characters from Shakespeare’s iconic play, "A Midsummer Night’s Dream."

This event, dubbed “The Vault of Dreams,” will combine a fantastical theater experience with dreamy culinary concoctions.

According to The Vault of Dreams’ PR team, next month’s event will “explore the depths of human dreams and literary themes including love, magic, dreams, jealousy, mischief, and transformation.” In addition to actors playing characters from Shakespeare’s famous work, will be live musicians and playful dancers to give guests, or “dreamers,” a truly immersive experience.

Head Chef of CW’s Gin Joint Maria Lola Sierra—who Creative Loafing Tampa Bay recently featured in this year’s food issue—will prepare a spread of floral-infused appetizers and desserts that compliment the event’s signature cocktails.
One of the featured cocktails is the “Gossip’s Bowl,” complete with lavender, Sipsmith gin and a peacock feather garnish.

Advanced reservations run for $75 each and can be found This 18+ event will run from 7 p.m. to midnight, but only guests ages 21 and up can sip on in its signature cocktails, or "elixirs."

The Vault, which typically hosts weddings and banquets, will be adorned with lush greenery and lavish florals, as a hypnotic night sky will project onto its ceiling throughout next month's event.

Downtown Tampa’s The Vault is located at 611 N Tampa St., adjacent to CW's Gin Joint.
