Last night at New York's eclectic New Museum, the number one selling cognac brand, Hennessy, and world-renowned artist KAWS celebrated the launch of their collaborative Hennessy V.S bottle with over 200 guests. The evening kicked-off with an intimate performance by Michael Holman and Jean-Michel's Basquiat's industrial art noise band, Gray.

After the performance, guests were escorted to the 7th floor to the after party where they were greeted with signature Hennessy cocktails, appetizers and music by Questlove of the Roots. The exclusive bottle, which hit shelves in September 2011, was used as a decorative piece throughout the event from a hologram machine of the KAWS Hennessy bottle design to a KAWS Hennessy reveal wall.
