Frequently asked questions

What to expect at the show?

Be transported back in time. The year is 1932, the Gin in sacred and forbidden and the Burlesque dancers even more so.

Behind the dark and dilapidated exterior of 257 Kingsland Road awaits 4 floors of gin soaked burlesque, music, magic and vaudevillian delights ...This immersive evening will take place throughout the many levels of our Gin-House. Be ready to explore every room and space that awaits.

Doors will open and gin will flow from 7.30pm and the entertainment will commence at 8.30pm in the main bar.

You will all be given either a gold or silver wristband upon arrival.

These will be your key to explore the entire 4 floors of the Gin House where simultaneous shows will go on in different rooms. Following the beginning section of the show on the ground floor Gold wristband holders will be shown to the first floor for the sit down show whilst silver wristband holders will be treated to a show in the basement before being led to the third floor, before gold and silver groups swap floors. But do remember, patience is a virtue, and everyone will see every performance at one point or another throughout the evening, all under the instruction of our host and front of house dames.

Please be aware our show may include live snakes and the venue contains significant amounts of taxidermy.
