Last night at the Paris Theater, Starz hosted the premiere of Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience.” The new television series centers on the life of a New York call girl. The titillating show stars Riley Keough (real-life granddaughter of Elvis Presley) as Christina Reade, who is not your likely escort. Moonlighting as a high-class prostitute at night while interning at a high profile law firm during the day leads to some very interesting moments in this young woman’s life.
After the screening guests attended a swanky after-party at the fantastic Nobu Fifty Seven. Throughout the evening selections from the restaurant were served including crispy rice with spicy tuna, chicken teriyaki, rock shrimp tempura, lobster and veggie tacos and assorted sushi.
Singani 63 was highlighted at the bar, which is the culmination of a 51-year, privately funded project known as the Steven Soderbergh adventure. Guests enjoyed cocktail delights with the beverage including The Fast Cash blended with sake, The Corner Suite with creme de peche, lime and ginger beer , and the lovely Sudden Impulse with Hibiscus Blackberry Chia, Meyer Lemon, Ginger liqueur and sparkling wine.
DJ Zen Freeman kept the crowd dancing all night long as assorted pastries were passed out. The evening was also presented by Vanity Fair.
The show will air on Starz April 10.
