(LOS ANGELES) — If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to have an immersive experience regarding a time period show, The Bridgerton Experience might be the event for you. From the extravagant gowns to even meeting the queen, this event was regarded as memorable by its attendees. The event took place at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles and was hosted by Netflix. 

The biggest thing that people enjoyed about it was the photo opportunities available. From the moment you enter the venue, guests are greeted by staff dressed in time period outfits, a lit-up tunnel, and giant displays hosting some of the main characters’ costumes throughout the show. There was a symphony of people exclaiming “wow” and “oh my God” as they stepped into the experience. 

The bar was elegantly decorated with flowers and vines and carried a list of delectable drinks. For people who wanted to immerse even more into the experience, they even provided their very own “Modiste” shop for guests to purchase props and gowns like the ones the characters wore.

Nothing was as long as the lines for taking pictures within the crystalline circle. About fifteen minutes into the experience, the queen was announced as she walked by and sat on her throne. Attendees were then able to present themselves to the queen and see her reaction to their outfits and manners. 

The workers in costume were very friendly and accommodating, ready to take pictures for people and help in whatever way they could.

“Our costumes are very comfortable because we had a costume designer come in and actually measure us and fit the outfit exactly to each of our body types,” said Brendon McMillan, one of the workers. 

The air within the ballroom felt almost magical thanks to the atmosphere created by the violinists playing their own renditions of popular modern songs, just like what they do on the show. Suddenly the doors to another room opened and there was a lit-up dance floor with dancers dressed as characters from the show, performing acrobatics while also dancing.

At one point the guests were allowed to join in, as one of the characters taught them how to dance. Everyone joined the dancefloor as the string quartet played Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart.” Once the number was over, the dancers proceeded with the show and gave the dance of a lifetime. 

“It’s a good start, I think the 90 minutes are not enough. I’d like to be able to party and have a good time and not feel rushed,” one of the guests told The Click. “I do love the photo ops, but waiting [in line] for them can be off-putting because it takes you out of the experience.”

For Los Angeles, the event will continue to be available until June. But it will also be available in Montréal, Washington D.C., and Chicago. Check out their website for more information.
