Prohibition Bristol – The night we escaped to Cuba!

Friday 13th may be unlucky for some, but for us it couldn’t have been luckier, as the wonderful folk at Prohibition Bristol transported us back to a bygone age, or more specifically, 1920’s Cuba!

Inspired by American high class society, who found a way around the US’ strict Prohibition laws by hopping on a plane to Cuba (boozing was alive, well and very much legal over there!) the evening saw 150 revellers, decked out in fabulous Cuban inspired fancy dress, enjoy a truly Tropical extravaganza. Sponsored by Bacardi, the evening kicked off with Planter’s Punch in the parlour, live Cuban music, a Daiquiri masterclass hosted by our in house expert Ash, and an array of dazzling burlesque dancers, including Bristol’s very own Flaming Feathers, Missy Malone and Miss Dolly Rose. The party continued late into the night with local DJ duo Duchess taking to the decks to work the crowd into a frenzy with Samba infused beats.

We had an absolute ball, but don’t take our word for it – take a look at the pictures!
