Imagine, if you will, New York City, 1899... Society's elite: the glamour, the grandeur, the glittering parties, the most handsome beaus, the most beautiful debutantes, the sounds of decadence, the rich girl, the humble boy, the forbidden love, the hushed whispers, the stolen glances, the secret rendezvous, the sin, the scandal, the mystery, the revenge. You are cordially invited to step into 'The Luxe' where the secrets are dark and the sins are delicious... RSVP.
