20S THEMED PARTY IDEAS AND EVENTS
The Cotton Club was a famous night club in Harlem, New York City that operated during Prohibition and included jazz music. During its heyday, the Cotton Club served as a chic meeting spot in the heart of Harlem, featuring regular “Celebrity Nights” on Sundays. Celebrities such as Jimmy Durante, George Gershwin, Al Jolson, Mae West, Irving Berlin, Eddie Cantor, Moss Hart, New York mayor Jimmy Walker and other luminaries would frequent the club
For our event, as your guests arrive they will be asked on entry for the secret password, by one of the gangster doormen. Once inside, guests are invited onto the red carpet and walk through the gold canopy entrance, into the Twenties dance club, whilst 1920’s Paparazzi photographers will be snapping away!
AUTHENTIC SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF 1920’S HARLEM
Guests will hear the authentic sounds of our very own 1920’s jazz band, playing hits like Glen Miller’s ‘In The Mood’, and other big band hits, therefore setting the scene for the evening. Pre-dinner drinks are served in teacups, as of course, we are in the time of Prohibition and guests are now in an illicit 1920’s drinking den! Black and white wall and ceiling drapes, and unique illuminated art deco adorn the walls and surround the room, all adding atmosphere.
Charleston Stilt Walkers will meet and greet guests, whilst Flapper girls will mix and mingle. You might also see some of the Hollywood stars from the silent movies, with Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy reported to be in the Cotton Club this evening. 1920’s living statues and living tables will add to the entertainment on offer, whilst a Flapper Girl shows off her hula hoop skills. A card shark will be set up on a table performing card magic for guests. Hat Check Girls will be walking around trying to make extra money and tips selling from their trays.
Dinner is announced and guests take their seats at their sophisticated nightclub table, for a serious evening of dancing. During Dinner or after the guest speakers, guests are treated to the main event and enjoy the best in Twenties dancing, as we introduce Sophistication.
