We’re not sure if there’s going to be any American style fireworks display at the Gore Hotel this Friday but if you’re looking to add some bang to your 4th of July, consider the Gore’s Burlesque Soirée with Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly Girlys.
The Soirée will take place from 8pm until 1am, with performances at intervals between 9.30 and midnight. Costumes will be provided by vintage lingerie specialist “What Katie Did”, and music comes courtesy of DJ El Nino, who will entertain guests with a mix of Burlesque-inspired tunes. Burlesque attire is not essential, but strongly encouraged, so expect to see a flurry of satin gloves, corsets, pillar box hats, powdered noses and red lips. The Gore's Bar 190 will serve three specially created cocktails, named after Hurly Burly’s performers – the “Miss Polly Rae”, the “Betsy Bon Bon”, and the “Miss Laurie Hagen”. Guests will also be able to enjoy Moët’s seductive Rosé Impérial Pink Champagne.
The Gore’s Supper Club will be open for dinner during the show and will include entry charge, a cocktail, three courses and coffee at £39 per person (otherwise £10 will get you in the door with one complimentary cocktail in hand). Supper Club guests will be able to enjoy Hurly Burly’s show at their table.
