Embrace the romance of the Jazz Age at London’s award-winning 1920s-themed speakeasy party, with live music, cabaret and cocktails in a secret venue filled with candles, where everyone dresses the part.

What more romantic way is there to celebrate St Valentine’s Day than an evening of Charleston-dancing, cocktail-sipping and general 1920s glamour? (Well, ask the members of Chicago’s North Side Gang who went down in a hail of bullets from Al Capone’s men in the famous St Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929 and you might get a different answer, but we’ll gloss over that…)

At our Valentine's Ball live music will come from jazz Cupid Elise Roth and her High Standards, raising the rafters with a hurricane of swing to get your feet moving on the dance floor. Hosting will be the Lord of Cabaret misrule, Champagne Charlie, with a slap, a tickle and a saucy song. There will be heart-stopping burlesque from the luminous Vicky Butterfly, and when the band aren’t playing DJs the Bee’s Knees will be spinning vintage vinyl.

Want to know if he/she is The One? Our fortune teller Lucius will be on hand to advise. There will also be a pop-up vintage jewellery store (in case you need a ring in a hurry) and a sketch artist to capture you in your dreamy finery.

You can preorder the three-course dinner, or reserve a table with Champagne (a menu of bar snacks and sharing platters to order for the table). Ticket-holders get an email a few days before revealing the secret location (close to a tube station).

Note that our party is not just for spooning couples—as at all our events, we welcome groups of friends, swing dance fans, vintage dandies, lone wolves and conga-dancing party people.

"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
