Feast, dance and play at the ultimate 1920s dinner party.

“A night of glamour, food, drinks and entertainment…. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.” – Broadsheet

It’s the roaring 20s and prohibition has cleared the city. WAIT…! There are whispers… down a dark alley, hidden inside a long closed bank building lives a jumpin’ juke joint.

It’s as hot as one of Gatsby’s Parties, it’s The Gin Mill Social!

A fine dining setting with a banquet style menu, the fun never stops as live swing musicians play all night long and the flappers are dancing, vaudeville performers pop up to entertain when you are least expecting it.

The 1920s is living and breathing.

Dress code: guys in ties, girls in pearls.

"It’s like Gold Class on steroids!” – Weekendnotes TICKETS
