La Belle Epoque-Halloween Special

On Saturday 30th October La Belle Epoque is celebrating everything bohemian, debauched and artistic will recreate the absinthe-fuelled hedonism of 19th Century Paris and indulge the artistic side of partying.

Recreating Monmartre (nightclub district north of Paris) in Shoreditch, the event has been designed to enrapture the soul and trick the mind. The night will include absinthe tasting classes from an expert absintheur, live music and entertainment including accordion players, Cabaret acts, trapeze artists, dancers and bands. Guests will be able to dance to old Music Hall favourites, or ponder on failed relationships with Edith Piaf chansons. 

Guests will be encouraged to create art throughout the evening, whether it’s standing up and reciting poetry, indulging in absinthe-induced ravings, life drawing or philosophising outside over a Gauloise.


Think Choleric Courtesan or Tortured Artist for the gentleman. Ladies should go for big hair, feathers and risqué hemlines – and if possible try to squeeze into those corsets!

Timings: 8pm-2am,

Tickets: £20
