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.
Feast, dance and play!
