The Big Speakeasy
Another one of these excellent nights that mixes fancy-dress with flappers, dirty contortionists and tons and tons of opium. Sadly, no opium, but that's the vibe they're trying to re-create in this age-old venue on the bund. 50rmb to get in, lots of dancers and acts, lots of 1920s cocktails and some silent cinema. Dressing up is mandatory. 50rmb. Traditional swing music and electro swing by DJ Baron Vulgaria and DJ B.O. Guys and dolls need to remember the password ‘Minnie The Moocher’ before being ushered into this specially prepared slice of old-time Shanghai. 1920s/30s costume or smart attire is obligatory.
