LA RÊVE - EVERY FRIDAY AT CAFÉ DE PARIS
La Reve continues it's west end reinvention with Swing Zazou's 9 piece electro swing, trapeze, hula, cabaret, circus, fireworks, food, dance and maybe even a cherry on top. Sumptuous dining, hard drinking and dirty dancing come as standard.
Bête Noire and Boom Boom Club are joining forces in this historic London venue.
The teams behind two of London's hottest alternative club nights come together in 2011 to produce a Friday feast of vintage-inspired entertainment at the world famous Café de Paris. LA RÊVE looks set to provide the perfect antidote to the characterless clubs and dreary mainstream theatres which have dominated the West End in recent years with an all-singing, all-dancing weekly extravaganza!
Bête Noire’s jazz age splendour and flapper fashion combines with Boom Boom Club’s deliciously twisted cabaret, to create a fantasy world evoking the golden age of nightclub entertainment - from the Moulin Rouge to the Bellagio. Expect live music, cabaret floor shows, circus, dancing girls, roving actors, aerialists and a host of other performance weekly. A blend of vintage sensibilities and contemporary after-hours entertainment, designed to appeal to retro devotees and all other lovers of hedonistic nightlife!
