Brisbane Festival presents

Club Swizzle

04 - 26 Sep
Arcadia - The Spiegeltent
From the creators of La Soirée (AUS)
Queensland Premiere

"NOT since Tom Cruise shook and stirred on the silver screen have there been cocktail makers with such panache." - The Courier-Mail

After two sell-out seasons at Brisbane Festival, the creators of La Soirée return with a brand spanking new show. Loose, glorious and irresistibly fun, Club Swizzle is a night of sassy entertainment where the mayhem is kicked up a notch.

In a glamorous Spiegeltent on the banks of the Brisbane River, a bar is born – the Club Swizzle bar. A bar where crazy good times abound, and the most debaucherous souls in show business come together to create a show you’ll never forget. It’s a melee of outrageous cabaret, air-defying acrobatics, infectious musical revelry, and it’s calling your name. Leave your coat and hang-ups at the door.

Hanging on to the reigns of the chaos is Murray Hill, direct from New York. Shaking things up behind (and on top of) the bar are The Swizzle Boys showing off their testosterone-fuelled acrobatic skills. Providing the soundtrack for the night is a bandwith a repertoire as big as its bar tab, Mikey and the Nightcaps.

This is Club Swizzle, and tonight, like every night, will be unlike any other.

With no stage, no rules and no regrets, there’s no place quite like it. So order yourself something stiff and get ready to dive in, head first.

“If you were to encounter this particular swizzle from the team behind La Soirée on a cocktail menu, it might be described thus: shaken, stirred, swung, pole-danced, extremely sexed-up and served with a side of deliciously brassy tunes from house band Mikey and the Nightcaps. And I'd recommend you order at least two.” (Sydney Morning Herald)
