This is the only time you'll ever want to be barefoot in New York City.

We already love Bryant Park for its movies and dance parties, but this month, Bryant Park will be hosting its first-ever ticketed event, the Barefoot Ball, on July 20th.

The reason for this first ever ticketed event is to raise money for Bryant Park Young Professionals, a network of young professionals who have special connections to Bryant Park, as well as funding for Bryant Park's various free year-round events.

Most of Bryant Park's dance parties this summer have been free, but this one will cost you a pretty penny - $115 to be exact.

But it looks like you'll definitely get your money's worth at the Barefoot Ball.

The massive dance party will feature an open bar serving wine from Wines of Germany and Sud de France, and beers from Bronx Brewery.

Food will be available for purchase from Momofuku Milk Bar and DB Bistro Moderne stands.

The music for this swingin' party will be provided by The Roots legend, and notable favorite, DJ Questlove.


And don't worry - the barefoot aspect of this party isn't mandatory. You can still dance the night away in flip flops if you so choose.

If you're not turned away by the pricey ticket fee, clear your calendar for July 20th at 7:30 p.m and snag your ticket while you still can.
