A clandestine 1920s speakeasy party in a secret London venue completely lit by candles, with live jazz bands, cabaret and retro-DJs. The bar dispenses vintage cocktails and the kitchens offer a fine-dining set menu and bar snacks.
This time, in honour of both the patron saint of lovers and Chicago's infamous St Valentine's Day shooting in 1929, watch us shoehorn romance and mobster slayings into one theme — think guys and dolls, gangsters and molls, Guns n' Roses. As it were.
There will be a cocktail menu full of passion, served on tables scattered with rose petals and machine-gun cartridge cases. There will be dancing to live 1920s swing from French smoothie Benoit Viellefon and his Orchestra, cabaret barbs from camp cupid Champagne Charlie, plus vintage DJing and a shoulder to cry on from Auntie Maureen.
Tables may be reserved for an additional fee. Guests receive an email two days before, revealing the secret location, and are requested to dress in period style—so pull on your flapper dress and get ready to Charleston.
"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
