A Prohibition Era-Themed Burlesque Brunch Is Debuting Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is set to welcome a new burlesque brunch series promising "interactive characters" and specialty cocktails.
Drunken Devil Productions, the L.A.-based events organizer that specializes in "thematic and theatrical parties...with a distinct horror edge", is hosting Deviled Eggs: A Burlesque Brunch at D'Vine Lounge. The monthly review will feature a full meal, bottomless mimosas, and burlesque performances.
"Enjoy a fully realized, theatrical experience as you step back in time to the Roarin' Twenties," notes Drunken Devil of the show. "Taking place at D'Vine Lounge, a hidden wine cellar underneath the O Hotel, you'll find yourself immersed in an underground speakeasy during the Jazz Age as you're thrust into a world of bathtub gin, flapper girls, and the rebellious spirit prominent during Prohibition."
Drunken Devil Productions was founded by Matt Dorado, and has hosted past events including a "boozy, New Orleans-themed" haunted house, a Studio 54-by-way-of-Hell-themed disco, and burlesque magic shows.
The premiere of the Deviled Eggs brunch will take place on August 27 at 11 a.m. The show is a 21-and-over party, and tickets ($45 includes a full meal, and a $15 add-on will get you bottomless mimosas) can be purchased here.
D’Vine Lounge at 821 South Flower Street in downtown Los Angeles. (213) 262-8517.
