As celebrity guests entered the party, they walked into the patio area that hosted the Sony X Headphone’s bonfire complete with smores and listening stations along with the Sin Thirst Sin bar showcasing their Hemp & Lemon, Curupira, and Maca & Rose flavored premium energy drinks. The patio area was also home to the Social Media Command Center, a projection of social media feeds from Hot 100 guests and fans. Inside the venue, DJ Vice brought the party to life spinning with his Sony X Headphones from a DJ Booth above the crowd of 1500.

The backroom of the venue was decked out with a Sony video wall playing content from Sony X Headphones, Maxim’s Hot 100, and Jacob’s Ghost™. Guests also indulged in two Sony X Headphone listening stations and cocktails from the Jacob’s Ghost™ Bars.

Jacob’s Ghost™ treated Hot 100 attendees to a special menu made from their premium white whiskey. Each bar menu included Ghost Juleps, Jacob’s Storm, Ghost Collins, Cranberry Ghost, and the most popular drink of the night, the Ghost Collins.

About Sony X Headphones:

Engineered with an efficient acoustic design, the new X Headphones feature precision 40mm drivers for a crisp, full-range audio experience that optimally reproduces today’s bass-heavy music. With their pressure-relieving memory foam ear pads, the X Headphones conform to each user’s unique ear shape, providing a highly effective acoustic seal and preventing sound leakage. In addition to reinforcing the headphones’ powerful sub-bass reproduction capability, the ear pads deliver a supportive, cushy feel, ideal for maximum long-term comfort. The X Headphones look as great as they perform with their color-accented headbands, swivel mechanisms and end caps. Their dual folding style allows the user to swivel the noise isolating ear pads for listening flexibility, as well as conveniently fold the headphones into an included sleek carrying case for hassle-free portability. Featuring grooved serrations on its surface, the X Headphones’ high-quality cord provides an innovative design that eliminates friction between cable surfaces, reducing the incidence of frustrating tangles.

About Jacob’s Ghost™:

In 1795, Jim Beam’s founding distiller Jacob Beam embarked on a bold tradition of distilling white whiskey. Now, 218 years later, we’ve perfected Jacob’s legacy with the Beam family’s newest whiskey – Jacob’s Ghost. While Jacob’s Ghost is a clear whiskey, it isn’t moonshine or un-aged white dog. It’s a one-of-a-kind, bold, aged whiskey, made from the same mash bill that Jacob started with, and then rested for at least one year in white oak barrels and crafted to be uniquely versatile, flavorful and unlike any other white whiskey.

While Jacob’s Ghost can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or as a chilled shot, white whiskey is especially versatile in any number of traditional whiskey cocktails, creative new variations, or cocktails that are typically made with white spirits such as vodka or tequila.
