When it’s done right (minus the clichés, OTT actors and awkward forced participation), an immersive experience is fantastic; work emails are a lot easier to forget when you’ve lost yourself in a whole other world. And given the infinitely long list of stellar reviews following a seven week sold-out run, it’s safe to say The Lost Love Speakeasy is undoubtedly one of London’s best.
Discover this clandestine speakeasy and uncover a pocket of prohibition-era 1920s New York City where hot jazz and sultry dancing is complemented by first-class food and enticing cocktails – all forming the backdrop for an epic love story. With some of West End’s biggest names headlining, including Letitia Hector of West End classic Thriller fame) playing The Lost Love’s patroness, and Motown and Hamilton’s Obioma Ugoala as the speakeasy’s mysterious Smokey Robinson.
With brilliant entertainment comes brilliant food, courtesy of none other than Neil Rankin, London’s leading open fire cook of the wildly popular Temper Restaurants dotted across the city. Neil will dish up a sizzling 1920s summer menu inspired by the deep south, of course accompanied by equally tantalizing prohibition-style cocktails with twists inspired by the show. The Crossroads Demon with mezcal, gin, raspberry, lemon and nutmeg is especially dangerous.
So whether you choose to be an artist, bohemian, flapper, gangster, tycoon or movie star; dress to the nines and prepare yourself for one star-studded, seductive night of jazz in Manhattan’s most notorious speakeasy.
