Anyone else just hear the resurrection of the roaring twentires coming from underground Hope Street?
Swing is a new underground bar and club designed to capture the atmosphere and elegance of the roaring twenties. The interior of this Hope Street basement has been completely refurbished to create an opulent and intimate jazz bar setting, where you can get your Gatsby on and enjoy music by some of the country's top jazz bands, displays by vintage dancing girls the Ayala Belles and assorted performance artists. And this isn’t a one off show – it’s every Thursday to Saturday.
Additionally, the bar offers a range of cocktails and champagne – the house brand being Ayala from Bollinger, sourced due to its popularity in New York and London during the twenties – and the staff are styled to suit the era with twenties make up and vintage clothes. On Thursday’s, Swing hosts an audition night where you can see the bands and performers vying for a place on the Swing stage. Be gentle on 'em.
