Christmas at Ironmongers’ Hall

Speak Easy in the City

Discreetly tucked away through an archway onto Shaftesbury Place, the wooden door entrance, begins this intimate prohibition Speakeasy affair. The street in which the venue is set is Aldersgate; there is a touch of anticipation and old-school flair which encompasses this almost
illicit establishment! Does one even disclose venue directions to guests?

Mutter the password and enter a world where gangsters mix freely with flapper girls and high society. It is prohibition, and anything goes!

Rich and strong notes of wood, tobacco and ale evoke the deep flavours of this roaring era. Make your way to the Drawing Room for a candle lit cocktail or sparkling reception, decked with bathtub gin and moonshines; before a butler calls you to the sumptuous surroundings of the
resplendent Banqueting Hall for dinner. Join the good-time girls on the dance-floor as they do the Charleston or swig a Gin Fizz at the bar.

Ladies please drape your pearls and feather boas; gents don your Fedoras and pin stripe suits. Leave your work outside, adhere to house rules. Come in before someone sees you, no snitches allowed.
