King Moon, founded by Suzi Bittles, is the natural culmination of a career spent earning the trust and respect of some of the world’s best editorial, advertising and fashion photographers; photo journalists; art directors; graphic designers; and artists. King Moon encompasses both Suzi Bittles’ work (art buyer and producer for print and video) and her brainchild, The Modern Salon Series, an organic extension of her experience and passion. (Her virtual Round Table is worth a visit.)

The Modern Salon Series, like Paris in the 1920s, brings together an extraordinary combination of artists, usually in a connected trilogy, from music, theatre, literature and art. We feature renowned actors, musicians, singers, painters, authors, poets and playwrights in performance, followed by lively discussion among the artists and the Salon guests. Gastronomic pleasure and good wine make for a perfect evening. The original Salons were breeding grounds for influential thought and great conversation. Ours are no exception. Salons are CUSTOMIZABLE and available in most any city.
