Jazz-age Clubs of Harlem is reincarnated for one night in a four-story Soho townhouse. Featuring an All-Star program of hot music and dance, decadent Bootlegger 21cocktails, gourmet hors d oeuvres’, real casino games, premium handmade cigars and an after-hours lounge offering further unspeakable delights.

Downstairs – the joint will be jumpin’ with live hot jazz, starring Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra in front of a REAL WOOD dance floor. In addition an All-Star program of tap dance, risqué follies and floorshow revue is in store. Document your night of frivolity in our vintage-style photo booth. Gorgeous cigarette girls strolling the club offer candies, gifts, and – cigarettes.

In the upstairs lounge – while our lovely chanteuse and piano-man set the mood, guests are invited to try a hand at poker, craps and blackjack with fabulous prizes, lounge with a stylish double torpedo cigar by Maraya, and other surprises.

This Club was, at the frenzied height of the Jazz Age, the Mecca of all that swung, shook and shimmered. At once an emblem of status and taboo, sophistication and lust, it was a cocktail of well-heeled “high hatters” in search of a deviant thrill mixed with the exotic, jazz-fueled pulse of Harlem night culture.

Where: 76 Wooster Street, New York (btw Spring and Broome)

When: Saturday, April 16th, 2011 at 9:00 p.m.
