A Night in the Roaring Twenties.
27 May 2014
Last week myself and Craig went to a Prohibition Party in the Bloomsbury Ballroom. It was literally the bestt night. As soon as we walked into the ballroom I felt like I'd time-warped back to the 1920's.
The Prohibition Parties take place every month at a 'secret location' with dancing, cocktails, (pretend) gambling and amazing fashion. The 20's dress code is strictly enforced which only adds to the fun. I loved getting all dressed up - even if we did attract a few odd looks on the tube there.
As you walk in you're handed a fake $100 dollar bill which you can use on their gambling tables. Although I had no idea how to play and lost every round it was really fun to pretend and really enhanced the 20's theme.
The cocktails were also soooo good, and one of mine even came in a tea-cup!! The bar staff free-poured too so by the end of the night we were ratherrrr 'happy'.
There were two live bands on the night in separate rooms playing some brilliant twenties songs that got everyone up attempting the Charleston. You could actually go to a dance class before the real event began if you really wanted to truly emulate the era. We were happy enough making our own moves up though.....not sure if they were something to be proud of looking back though....
It was such a good night though and really different to a normal night out. The next party is on the 28th June and you can get tickets here if you fancy! I'm away at Glastonbury but I so want to go again and take all my girl friends!
