The Moonshine Club
Having surreptitiously taken over a derelict church and, belying the prim and proper facade, the Moonshine Club is home to the city's hottest vintage entertainment - converting from cabaret theatre to sultry jazz lounge in the blink of a heavily mascaraed eye.
Enjoy the non-stop entertainment of Moonshine Cabaret, a carefully curated collection of vintage-inspired performances, after which the Moonshine Club has lined up a copacetic selection of musicians to bring you the sultry and sometimes mournful sound of the southern United States. Sit back, sip a classic cocktail and enjoy the entrancing blues of these two very different bands as their smouldering tunes fill the vaulted ceiling as night teeters into morning.
