Isle Dauphine Club
GULF SEAFOOD GALA CELEBRATES ISLE DAUPHINE CLUB ANNIVERSARY Enjoy outstanding Alabama Gulf seafood cuisine in the classic mid-century modern setting of the Isle Dauphine Club on Saturday, October 6, 2018, from 6-9 p.m., when the Dauphin Island Heritage and Arts Council partners with the Dauphin Island Property Owners Association to present the second annual Gulf Seafood Gala. This year’s event commemorates the Club’s 60th anniversary and showcases the best of local seafood traditions with a nostalgic evening celebrating the coastal chic of the beachfront club in its heyday.
Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Club made a bold architectural statement when it was built amidst the dunes overlooking the Gulf and opened for membership during early development of Dauphin Island as a resort destination in the late 1950’s. It is a rare example of the mid-century modern style in Alabama and a unique aspect of the island’s colorful heritage.
Join us at the Gulf Seafood Gala to enjoy locally sourced Gulf seafood, offered for your tasting pleasure with local craft beer and wines in a relaxed walkabout setting reminiscent of bygone days. Live music, displays of vintage Club photographs, and a silent auction of original art will round out a memorable Dauphin Island experience.
The Gulf Seafood Gala has been endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission as an official 200Alabama Bicentennial event. Admission is by pre-purchased ticket only. Tickets are on sale now at $75 each, and may be purchased online through www.dauphinislandarts.org or at the Dauphin Island Gallery, 918A Bienville Boulevard, Dauphin Island, Alabama.
