Have you ever wished you were born in a different era? Are you anti social networking, but pro-smooth suits and snappy fedora hats? Do you attempt to play life out as a romantic vintage fantasy against the odds?
Then you’re probably the type of person for who The Black Cotton Club – a swinging night of hot jazz from the ‘20s to the ‘40s – was created. It’s strictly a dress-up-and-dance-night, so ensure to don your best vintage clobber before you boogie on down to rare swing and rhythm’n’blues music, played on original 78 records. And not only that: if you attend the next monthly night, you’ll also witness retro jive band Sugar Floor Stomp honking their horns and plucking their cellos to their seedy swing sounds until the early hours.
In the age of depersonalised superstar DJ clubs, places such as The Black Cotton Club are a genuine breath of fresh air. So get down to Volupté burlesque club on the 17th to soak up the fun and sleazy prohibition era atmosphere. Flapper dresses at the ready! (Words: Aoife Moriarty)
