Well mes copains, the time has finally come. The very first Bon Bon party launches Islington off into the nethersphere to return anon. The Muses have been singing about us and the streets call out our name; the future is a double-ended dildo. The dichotomy of life is thus: Great new indie, electro, disco, surf-rock and some persistent classics will exist in a space of exquisite lasciviousness perpetrated by some terrible perpetrators in the Ballroom (that’s the downstairs bar and dancefloor). Whilstwhile, ascending the staircase will pertain to an otherworldly sound echoing back from the early 20th century: proper rock n roll, swing, surf, rockabilly in two beautiful vintage lounges cherrydecorated with chandalier and candelabra.
We are free, but if there is a queue then you can say you know us. Dressing up is encouraged, we love vintage fashion, but not necessary. Looking good is. Of course, that comes naturally.
We begin at 9pm and finish around 4am. That’s the latest party on Upper Street.
It’s nearest to Highbury and Islington, but you can get from Angel in about five minutes too.
Drinks are very reasonable and the bar staff know how to make a helluva cocktail.
