I've just been to see a new cabaret venue in brighton. A gorgeous and small but incredibly decadent looking art deco room above a bar and restaurant.
In the bar theres a red velvet cushioned door with a big gold door knocker. Go up the stairs.. A gramophone plays. Turn to the right and enter the room. Dimly lit... Candle lit tables and booths with red lamps.. The word 'GIN' lit up in neon lights by a bar that's hidden behind a plush curtain.
Table service. Piano by a small but perfectly sized stage... and i've just set up some dates for some intimate evenings there.
An evening with Joe Black plus special guests... BRIGHTON! Put 23rd july in your diaries. More details to come soon.
I must say i am VERY excited. The venue lends to what i do so perfectly. I'll be performing some of my usual bits.. but the space has inspired me to work on some new things. So if this works (and i'm sure it will!) i'll be there regularly. Slightly different show every time. With more than a few surprises!
Hope to see you at the bar...
