The luvvie spirit lives on in this bijou, mirrored pastiche of a Berlin boîte, and you’ll have a gay old time thanks to its mix of cabaret, burlesque, open-mic nights and drag diva divertissements. Walk-ins are accommodated whenever this postage stamp of a room permits, but booking is advisable post-happy hour (until 8pm).When you’re not sipping fizz from a chorus girl’s marabou slipper, try one of the period-piece cocktails – perhaps brown derby (bourbon, grapefruit and honey), sidecar, picador or toreador (forerunners of the margarita). Modern house calls such as gingerbread lady boy or Starbucks must die (a brandy, Kahlúa and espresso eye-opener) are also popular. Otherwise, pucker up to Perrier-Jouët sparklers named after French icons such as Catherine Deneuve and Marie Antoinette. Food is limited to pitta bread and dips, and there’s snuff – if that tickles your fancy.
