As soon as you arrive, you feel like you have been transported to an episode of Boardwalk Empire. A magician awaits, a sketch artist may draw you as you sip your Absinthe, and dancers or character actors are entwined throughout the night engaging and tantalizing guests with song, Prohibition-era style dancing, and saucy outfits. Could you be in the Pigalle in Paris in the 1920’s? You have arrived at Nuit Blanche, a sleepless night.
For the first time in 70 years, the Carandolet House is bringing Cabaret back, where French-born proprietor Jean Marceau began in 1928 with his dream of importing Parisian Cabaret to LA. The stunning historic home, now an entertaining space, got its name from the S.S. Carondelet, the ocean liner that brought Marceau to America.
The night is structured around a master of ceremonies who tells a tale with some steamy surprises. After a cocktail hour, phones are taken and checked so you can be fully present. In your black tie and vintage flapper garb, enjoy a 5+ course dinner, including lobster claw, Niman Ranch tenderloin, and wine, as live music sets the mood, and scantily clad performers take you on a wild erotic ride – with smoke and windows and candles and wax. Burlesque, voyeuristic rooms of pleasure, and nonstop entertainment while you dine bring a night like no other. Your senses will be blown!
