The Gatsby-esque bash, which cost the birthday boy’s family an estimated $4 million, was held at the Hotel Discotheque in San Antonio and combined the teen’s love for art and fashion. The venue was adorned with floor-to-ceiling decor, aerial performers, burlesque showgirls and contortionists swimming in oversized martini glasses.

In celebration of the theme, the venue featured a one of a kind ice bar, cigar and whiskey lounge, s well as a lobster and caviar bar. In the spirit of keeping the affair lavish, Thomas Jr. was gifted with a fully loaded blue Ferrari, an IWC Portugieser Tourbillon watch and a custom-made painting by Alec Monopoly.
