The very first Violette Underground will be happening Wednesday evening, Dec 16 at Woodwork. The event will be a unique mix of speakeasy and salon: attendees will be able to roll from philosophical conversation to craft cocktails while enjoying various live performances including spoken word, jazz and burlesque.
"My goal is to create a unique kind of experience that I don't currently see being offered in Edmonton's scene. I would define it as a cross between a secret speakeasy club and a philosophical salon, with a focus on unique, live entertainment. I want attendees to put their phones away and go back in time - to really enjoy and drink in that tangible, tactile experience of physically being present in a space. Every person in the room contributes to the pleasure and amusement of the night, but there will also be a smattering of organized entertainment - spoken word poetry, live jazz – and, of course, burlesque. My goal is to delight and surprise, and offer a variety of experiences and activities, for a variety of palettes", says Violette Coquette regarding her inspiration to start the Violette Underground.
