A Jazz Age Speakeasy
Do you have an affection for the years between 1925 and 1939? Is there a framed poster of the Chrysler Building in your home? Do you frequently quote Bevis Hillier? Does zebra skin give you a happy, serene feeling? Then you probably already have your tickets to the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles’ Club Manhattan: A Jazz Age Speakeasy. Some of the evening’s details are secret, but here’s what they’re revealing: “You’ll find men in striped suits and women in beaded chemises that catch the light as they shimmy to the Charleston. There, back in the ’20s, it’s rumored the bathtub gin flowed freely. Now we’re pretty sure we’ll be safe from raids, and the hooch is clean, but we might still serve it in teacups. Knock three times and whisper the secret password (to be revealed when you make your reservation). Swellegant people, deliciously furtive drinks, dancing with abandon, raffles and a surprise or two we can’t yet reveal.” Location and parking information upon reservation. Sat., March 29, 8 p.m.-midnight, 2008
