There’s nothing quite like kicking off SXSW with a party at the CS Bungalow complete with major jungle vibes, to-die-for thai food, an amazing guest list, customizable mezcal cocktails and a 30 pound albino python. This year’s soiree was all about partying #LikeYouMeanIt and our party goers fully embraced the theme! Scroll on for some of our favorite moments and details – captured by Hannah Haston – and don’t miss a peek at our scaly guest of honor.

A huge thanks to our partners who made this party one for the books!!

Can you believe this room is usually full of desks?! Thanks to Loot Vintage for helping us create this amazing lounge – they’re truly our go-to’s for every party that needs to look amazing.

Our favorite DJ (and Camille’s college bestie), New York-based Miss Behavior kept the party going with vibey tunes.

La Crema Wines always our drink of choice!

Party goers enjoyed fresh and fruity cocktails finished with smoky mezcal. The Mezcal Margaritas featured Susto Mezcal and BBQ Wife Margarita Mix and Glowing Mezcals featured Susto Mezcal and Juiceland’s Golden Glow juice.

Attendees put a custom spin on their cocktails with fresh herbs from Lettuce Grow.
