The Green Room networking event is back at a new location. After a hiatus due to the closing of the Cat & Fiddle (the venue we called home for six years), we've found a new hot spot in Hollywood. Aventine combines traditional trattoria food with the ambiance of a Hollywood bar to create a social trattoria. We've reserved the gorgeous outdoor patio for our night. Appetizers will be passed from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and alumni will receive one free drink ticket. Valet parking ($8) and nearby public parking ($8–$10) are available.

The Green Room is a Berklee alumni networking event that attracts young alumni who are new to town and established alumni looking to connect with their friends. Averaging 100 guests per event, it is the alumni event to attend if you're looking to chat, mix, and mingle with Berklee's LA community.
