Embrace your alter ego and indulge in the seductive side of partying at Belle Époque.
Featuring jaw dropping acrobatic feats, show stopping music acts and eye-popping outfits, Belle Époque has been designed to enrapture your soul, trick your mind, and release your inner exhibitionist.
From the people who brought you The Blitz Party and Prohibition, Belle Époque will take place in Shoreditch on Saturday 12th May 2012. Step into a fantasy world where masked villains melt in to the crowd as corseted courtesans drape themselves over gilded balconies.
Throughout the evening, guests marvel at the spectacular surroundings, inspired by the aerialists and trapeze artists as they twist and turn from the ceiling. Daring dancers dazzle as heady cocktails tantalise. Village Underground will be transformed into a lavish music hall, complete with a stage, trapezes and three floors decked out with golden balustrades and lined with crimson velvet curtains. Intimate nooks and cosy crannies on the mezzanine levels create perfect spots for surveying the crowd, while other floors play host to cocktail bars, absinthe fountains and a boudoir dedicated to costume make up.
Both live bands and DJs play an eclectic mix of music, a diverse and original sound that ranges from boisterous big band to rock and roll hits and dancefloor fillers. The evening’s dress code is strict, but stretches the limits of the most far-fetched imagination. Reach into your inner desires and pull out a theme. Be it femme fatale or feisty fan dancer, a petticoat-clad showgirl or a powdered Marie Antoinette, ladies go for big hair, feathers and risqué hemlines – and, if possible, try to squeeze into a corset. Gentlemen should aim for a devilishly dashing look, using masks, hats and disguises to create an air of mystique. Think twirling moustaches and swirling cloaks, silken top hats and crisp tails.
