“Themed” nights at bars aren’t a new phenomena, especially in Los Angeles. However, every so often, you’ll stumble upon a gem that truly does the word justice.

In January, street photographer George Sifuentes attended a roaring ‘20s party at the Varnish, a hidden yet stylish speakeasy in the back of Cole’s restaurant in downtown L.A. In the midst of all the classic suits, vintage hats and flapper attire, he spotted this gentleman.

“Rarely, does every aspect of your surroundings take you back to a different era,” Sifuentes said. “I had to ask someone if I could take their picture.”


The image was taken with an iPhone 4s.
