Join the Jack & Jill Young Professionals group for a drink, lite bites, networking, and fun at The Wilder! Proceeds will benefit the children at Jack & Jill Children’s Center.

The Wilder is the watering hole for bon vivants with a vision. The venue offers a cool, relaxing, intoxicating space where you can escape with friends and get lost in a moment. It is comprised of three rooms with distinct personality—A cocktail bar, turning out masterfully executed libations, a terrace, for sun-drenched revelry, and a scintillating great room, hosting near-nightly parties for a sophisticated collection of clientele. The atmosphere at The Wilder is playful, but elevated, intoxicating, but familiar, tropical, enticing, and a place to, well, get wild, that feels more like a secluded, storybook escape than a bar or lounge. Guests are at ease, and the staff is polished, friendly, and faultless. To learn more about our venue, Click Here.
