Event Details

This private space serves as a meeting point where hospitality, art installation, event production and live entertainment intersect, providing a completely immersive social hub for Jack Daniel's in Los Angeles.

While you enjoy an iconic Tennessee whiskey we'll engage in the broad topic of family business and the specifics of how the Brown family and Brown-Forman have worked together to develop world-class family and corporate governance systems.

With so many cautionary tales in the family business canon, we'll have the unique opportunity to hear about how a 150 year old, 6 generation family business has worked to strike a balance between professional management and family ownership, all with an eye toward securing a sustainable future for the company's shareholder, employees and communities.


Advance registration required. Space is very limited. 

Must be 21 or older to participate.
