Here are some photos by Leanne Thompson from the last show and a couple of reviews I found on TripFinder…
Greg Poppleton, Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer, with his Bakelite Broadcasters at the Gin Mill Social.
“From arrival to departure the theme and welcome of the Gin Mill Social was outstanding. Remember you are visiting a speakeasy for social contact, entertainment and sustenance. Food, beverages and service is, as always at Slide, excellent, personable, efficient and effective. I won’t give away too much but dress to theme is highly recommended. Feathers, head bands, hats, flapper frocks and dapper gentlemen abound. Fedoras were common. You may borrow from the house collection of accoutrements upon entry if you pass the doorman’s scrutiny. Beware the ‘police’ and remember your line. Practice your dance moves and prepare to be astounded at the bands, singing, acrobatics and dedication to your entertainment.” Robert W

“Great night out at Slide celebrating the prohibition period, complete with “strong tea” served in teapots with cups and saucers. Entertainment all evening including juggling, fire eating, singing, music, tap dancing, aerial gymnastics, fantastic compere who went from table to table to chat and entertain. We even had a police raid! Staff and patrons wore period costume and a great night was had by all. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. Highly recommended and I would love to return to experience another themed night.”
