A special party by London’s award-winning immersive 1920s-themed speakeasy, with live jazz, cabaret and cocktails in a secret venue filled with candles, where everyone dresses the part.
As Mardi Gras reaches a fever pitch in New Orleans this weekend, we bring a little of the Big Easy to our speakeasy.
New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz and a town that knows how to party—when Prohibition came the city paid little attention and just let the good times roll. Crack Prohibition agent Izzy Einstein used to gauge the challenge he would face policing a town by seeing how long it took him to get a drink when he arrived: in New York it took 14 minutes; in New Orleans it took 37 seconds.
In the run-up to Mardi Gras they really let rip, with a festival of masks, costumes, parades and music. Dozens of "Krewes" spend all year putting displays together and as they process through the city they fling trinkets, specially minted coins and strings of gold, purple and green beads from their floats into the crowd. We’ll have those at our party too, and we’ll be projecting New-Orleans-set vintage movies and original footage of the city in the Jazz Age.
Our food and drink menus will feature classic New Orleans cocktails and cuisine, and there will be live New Orleans music from the Candid Jug Orange Band, DJing from the Bee's Knees and cabaret from our King of the Carnival, Champagne Charlie. Down in the basement our Voodoo seer Lucius and will be ready to tell your fortune.
You can pre-order a three-course dinner (which includes a table reservation all night) or reserve a table with Champagne but without the dinner. In addition to the main cocktail bar, our rum, absinthe and cigar bar will be selling genuine Havana cigars to smoke in our private garden. Ticket-holders receive an email two days before revealing the secret location.
"The closest you'll find to an authentic Jazz Age experience in central London. Its unique ambience, fuelled by hundreds of candles, is truly a scene to behold." —Time Out
