London Nightlife in the Art Deco Era

No Longer Available


British historian Lucy Jane Santos will take us on a tour of all the best nightlife spots (nightclubs, bars, and hotels) in 1920s and 30s London in this virtual presentation back in time. The lecture will be peppered with cocktail demos of some of the popular cocktails of the day.


We will visit – to name a few Art Deco gems– the Savoy American bar, the Regents Palace Hotel, the Salted Almond Bar, the Café de Paris and Claridge’s; meet bartenders and customers and learn about some iconic cocktails from the period. All virtually of course.
