A group of dressed-up men and woman are standing around an interior with drinks in hand. A table is at center, where a woman in red dress is seated, leaning her elbow on the table, and raising her glass to two men wearing tuxedos. A woman in a yellow dress with green sash stands with her back to the viewer. A white cat sits on a stool at far right. Another crowd of figures stands in the left background and watches the group at the table.
