The first party is in the fancy elaborate East Egg. It is quiet, refined and only four people talk in subdued tones. They are drinking but nobody is really drunk. The party in Chapter two is a drunken fiasco. There are more people at this party in a smaller flat in New York. All the people are loud, drunk, petty and boisterous. Nick is really revolted by it all.
