GIN MILL SOCIAL TONIGHT AND SATURDAY 29 JULY

Tonight we’re playing the very first 1920s Gin Mill Social at Cellos, the beautiful art deco room on Level 4, Castlereagh Boutique Hotel

A lavish 1920’s dinner party with live music,
swing dancing, pop up performances and an extravagant menu!

“A night of glamour, food, drinks and entertainment…. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.” – Broadsheet

Party like it’s 1929 at the Gin Mill Social… a night where you will feast, dance and play.

Sydney loves a pop-up, and the glamorous speakeasy event will take over the top floor of the Castlereagh Boutique Hotel at Cellos Grand Dining Room, a heritage-listed jewel that has been beautifully restored to its Art Deco glory. This will be your playground for the evening.

Enjoy a 4 course menu with food inspired by hotel banquets of the era. Music is loud and lively, and pop-up performances punctuate the night, starting with the authentic twenties jazz sounds of the Greg Poppleton Trio followed by a second band.

More than a dinner party, this is the perfect way to give Gatsby a run for his money!

“It’s like gold-class on steroids” – weekendnotes

Dress code: guys in ties, girls in pearls.

Join us…..
Feast, dance and play!

6 June Phantom Dancer – Silent Health Film From 1920


It’s Phantom Dancer time Tuesday on radio and online – your two hour non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio with Greg Poppleton. What’s on?

Well, there’s a set of ‘Sweet Bands’ from live 1930s-40s radio and some early late night Benny Goodman from 1935. The Velvet Fog, Mel Torme, sings two songs including one when aged 17 in front of Chico Marx’s Orchestra on a CBS Fitch Bandwagon and the last hour is all vinyl.

Listen now at 2SER radio online

Tirelessly searching YouTube for a swingy, jazzy, instructive, or ‘weird and wonderful’ Video of the Week, I’ve found something curiously wonderful – a circa 1920s ‘Women’s Hygiene’ film. It actually is medically educational (and educational as a social history) though the shower scene does verge on the pseudo-educational sexploitation films of the 1950s-60s. Enjoy!

Make sure you come back to this blog, Greg Poppleton’s Radio Lounge, every Tuesday, for the newest Phantom Dancer play list and Video of the Week!

Thank you.
