The Debaucherous Bar

Thursday 20 November 2014
Rosewood Hotel Cabaret (10)

I was going to start off with Sunday's are for... but then thought, what actually are they for? For me Sunday's are for relaxing and taking in that last bit of freedom before work. I like to spend once last bit of time having a good knees up before the daily grind starts again. Not for everyone, but if this is you, then follow me into a very surreal little bar....

Feet up, champagne in hand, I headed over to the Rosewood London in Holborn. Luckily I live just down the road so it was a no brainer to go. 

Scarfes Bar at the hotel is currently playing host to a series of cabaret evenings featuring world-renowned cabaret performers. Held bi-weekly on a Sunday, I felt like I'd stumbled into some random gentleman's club. It's definitely not conventional cabaret, it's more like stumbling into an eccentric upper class house party in the middle of London, hosted by a rather debaucherous couple who've had too much champagne.

Take your seat in the bar, sit and chat with friends, all whist singer's, contortionists and exhibitionists graze around you. Rather surreal for a Sunday evening.

Entry into the bar is £30, which gets you champagne, food and of course the show. After that, the night could take you anywhere. Engulfed in a soft, luxurious sofa, I did feel rather at home and relaxed. Which let me tell you is how they want to feel. 

The evening started with rather refined introduction by our host Dusty Limit's, yet this was short lived. Whilst we relaxed around our table, strange and mesmerising things started to unfold. I won't bother trying to commentate, so I'll just let the visual effects do the talking...

We all ended on a bit of a sing song, like some fancy drawing room gathering that I'd stumbled into. I rather feel Downton would like this.

I've been to alot of Cabaret's this year, including Cafe de Paris and The London Cabaret Club , however this was wildly different. It's alot more casual and fun, not formal stage, just a bar and some rather eccentric performer's wandering about.

I do think this may be the way forward, especially for a Sunday where you just want to relax... well relax as much as you can when a man walking on his hand's jumps on your table. Wish I'd caught that on camera, kind if moment.

Of course, this all being a rather hedonistic kind of party, I thought 'd share for any of you fashion types my outfit. This is my new go to sweatshirt from a website called Flying Wardrobe. Ignore that name, they do have some great pieces, like this petal top.

With a little stumble out of the bathroom, maybe a wrong turn down the hotel corridor's, I left the sort of party and made my way home, filled with champagne and a fuzzy head of what exactly had a I seen that night.
