Rise Up

River Oaks District-adjacent high-rise The Wilshire toasted its grand opening in style, with bubbly aplenty and mouthwatering bites from neighboring Steak 48. Attendees toured the building’s impressive pool deck — contortionist Rachel Reaneau performed in the pool! — and admired a selection of contemporary art curated by the Barbara Davis Gallery.
