The magic of Christmas is upon us once again. ‘Tis the season of holiday markets, mulled drinks, ugly sweater competitions, ice skating, and Yuletide carols. Father Christmas is coming and everyone is preparing their ‘I have been good list’, but perhaps it would be more fun to make an ‘I want to be naughty list’ …
London is brimming with ways to trade traditional pastimes for sensual or sexy adventures. Here are just a few suggestions of how to spice up your holidays and explore the naughtier side of Christmas in this vibrant capital city.
The London Cabaret Club
Lights, glitter, sparkle and entertainment all go hand in hand with Christmas, and The London Cabaret Club (thelondoncabaretclub.com) has it all, winning the London Lifestyle Award for ‘Best Entertainment Concept’. Guests are treated to lavish dining with a dazzling cabaret show which celebrates British culture and features stars from the West-End, original choreography and first- class production. This Christmas treat yourself to ‘A Gatsby Christmas’, an impressive full-scale winter wonderland spectacle that recreates the sensual era of the 1920s, with aerial artists, gangsters, feathers, and an endless flow of champagne.
Gin House Burlesque
For an evening of pure hedonism, pay a visit to Gin House Burlesque (www.ginhouseburlesque.com), a speakeasy inspired by the Prohibition Era. Their show celebrates the wild excesses of the Golden Jazz Age and presents high-end burlesque by internationally renowned performers, snake charmers, magicians and fire eaters. Take a journey back in time to 1930’s New Orleans and delight in a gin-fuelled evening of luxury dining and vintage excess that will leave you wanting more.
The Poetry Brothel
The Poetry Brothel (thenudge.com/london-lifestyle/poetry-brothel) is a unique poetry event staged in the intimate setting of a bordello. Following the example of the fin-de-siecle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, The Poetry Brothel uses a cast of “poetry whores”, each with their own alter-ego and clever back-story to whisper and utter sweet verses and stories in your ear. If you fancy a particular poetry courtesan you can book a private reading for a more intimate and sensual experience. The brothel is alive with burlesque dancers, jazz musicians and tarot card readers to add extra touches to the already alluring ambience. The Poetry Brothel is a recurring event throughout the year, so check upcoming dates and reserve your place in this delicious den of iniquity.
