On Friday 4th March let Polygon Pop-Up take you back to the 1920s with their Prohibition Speakeasy Bar. Along with Gin & Bear it, Polygon Pop-Up are collaborating with Small Batch Coffee to bring you a pop-up experience like no other!
‘The year is 1922, Flappers abound and the Charleston reigns supreme on the fashionable dance floors. Mobsters and Boozehounds have taken control of our city and Brighton’s law-makers have cracked down on the sales of alcoholic drinks such as gin, vodka and whiskey and pushed all bars deep underground. Two relative new-comers – Father Gin and Father Bearit – are bringing their floating “prayer meeting” to our town in an effort to administer the “spirit” to the chosen few. Can you keep a secret?’. Hidden beneath one of the Small Batch locations in the heart of Brighton, the bar will be serving up prohibition-era cocktails using Brighton Gin, Martinis from the underground prohibition king’s J and B and one of Brighton’s best craft beers form Bright Bier Brewery.
Of course, this isn’t just an event you can pop along to. You will require a password and a pseudonym to be welcomed in. This, with the location, will be provided on a need to know basis, obviously. Ticket holders will be given a fake name, character profile and password for the evening and will not know the location until the night. There will be actors integrated into the crowd, from mobsters, drunk priests, drunk nuns, bent cops to Brunos and Broads. You will be entertained with comedy burlesque, live music and palm readers. Tickets are only £15 which include a gin cocktail on arrival and a personal portrait photograph for you to take home. You can buy your tickets here and join the Facebook event here. If you’re looking for a unique night out, then this is the place to go!
