Edmonton's most elusive pop-up speakeasy! Go back in time to an era of luxurious outfits, spirit-forward cocktails, jazz and extravagance with the Violette Underground, hosted by burlesque performer Violette Coquette. The exact performer list is always secret: the anticipation of what you will see is part of the surprise and delight of the night. Expect spoken word poetry, jazz singing, fortune telling, dancing, games of chance, philosophical conversations and (of course) glittery burlesque performances. Styled after a past era of extravagant parties, this event is a mix of party and show without the separation of stage - any place in the room can be a front-row seat.
The next Violette Underground is a NextFest Nite Club! Prohibition Pride on Saturday, June 10.
