If you loved the glitz and glam of The Great Gatsby, then get excited because for three months, Speakeasy Thursdays is taking you back to the 1920s. That’s right, every Thursday night until 19 December twentyone will be to host the hottest night in town. Think velvet seats, feather fans, gin cocktails, and moody blues—your Thursday night has never looked so glamourous.

From swing band music, to the Gatsby Girl dancers, DJs, and even a saxophonist, each night will have you transported back in time—minus the prohibition. Speaking of which, in true Gatsby style, the night just wouldn’t be complete without a nice cold drink in hand, so thankfully twentyone’s drink list is just as beautiful as its interior. Sit back and sip on one of their many whiskeys, or channel your inner Leonardo DiCaprio and jazz up your night with a Gin Rickey.

Whether you’re out for a night on the town with the girls, looking to mix up your usual Thursday night after work drinks, or want to see what all the 1920s fuss is all about, this is one show that won’t disappoint. So, dig around in the back of your closet for that sequined dress we all have hidden away, pop on that Panama hat, and get ready to say “I was definitely born in the wrong era”, because the 1920s are coming baby.
